The Public Works Director was designated by the City Council as an authorized person under this grant because transit operations was a division of the Public Works Department. Transit services has recently moved from the Public Works Department to the Community Services Department. Although Resolution No. 2020-088 is valid for fifteen (15) years, given the department restructure, it's no longer appropriate for the Public Works Director to be the authorized person under this program. The City Council is being requested to delegate authority to the City Manager which will provide flexibility for him to designate the appropriate City staff in carrying out these activities on the City's behalf regardless of which department the services are operated from.
