Council Allocates Funds for City Projects and Services

City Council members green-light expenditures that include senior citizen and low-income resident programs, a new finance and human resources computer system and new city vehicles.

The City Council unanimously approved funding for a range of city projects and services Tuesday.

  • $2.1 million to Tyler Technologies Inc. to upgrade the city's finance and human resources computer systems.
  • $253,516 for programs that aid senior citizens and low- to moderate-income Beverly Hills residents. A little more than $180,000 of the total is from this year's estimated federal Community Development Block Grant, and the rest comes from "unallocated funds remaining from prior years," according to a report by Human Services Administrator James Latta.
  • $105,720 to purchase four vehicles from Galpin Ford. Two Ford Taurus sedans for the Fire Department and a Ford Edge and Explorer for the Police Department will replace "old and job-worn vehicles," according to the agenda.
  • $70,000 to Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. to develop "a GIS-based parking demand model and the gathering of the necessary information to begin the population of a citywide commercial parking database," the council meeting's agenda states.
  • $53,032 to purchase two motorcycles for the Beverly Hills Police Department from Long Beach BMW Motorcycles. The terms of the purchase mirror the dealership's agreement with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, according to a report by the city's Maintenance Operations Manger Fred Simonson and Fleet Manager Rene Biadoma.
  • $47,492 to purchase a video conference system for firefighter training.
  • $7,200 in the form of credit for future payment obligations to the Beverly Hills Little League and American Youth Soccer Organization to reimburse them for the cost of hiring TruGreen Landcare to hydro-seed areas of .

The next council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 21.
