Hollywood Commission Approves Expenditures at March 7 Meeting

At the March 7 meeting, the Hollywood Commission approved some major expenditures.  It agreed to allow the Center for Independent Living of Broward to extend the term of its agreement and amend the timetable to provide housing rehabilitation services to a minimum of two low- and moderate-income disabled homeowners, in an amount not to exceed $131,337, through the use of available state housing initiative partnership program funds.

The Commission agreed to ratify an application to the Florida Department of Transportation. This involves a grant that will go toward creating an initiative to reduce traffic accidents causing deaths and injuries, by conducting enforcement operations which target speed and aggressive driving. The grant would be for $60,000.

It agreed to a resolution allowing the expenditure of Federal Law Enforcement Forfeiture Funds for the purchase of field force equipment in an amount not to exceed $36,873.

It agreed to a resolution allowing the continuation of various advisory boards such as the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee, African American Advisory Council Green Team Advisory Committee, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Advisory Board and others.
