Meeting Date: 10/20/2016  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a renewal of the Service Agreement with South Montgomery County YMCA C-2016-0503;
FISCAL IMPACT:
$80,000 approved in 2017 Budget
BACKGROUND:
In 1994, the former Town Center Improvement District (TCID), now The Woodlands Township, adopted a Public Safety Plan and selected the YMCA Partners of Youth Program as an appropriate resource for meeting the Youth Outreach Crime Prevention portion of its Public Safety Plan.

Since 1999, program participation has been ongoing, beginning with a participation level of $55,000 and steadily reducing over the years until the former TCID Funding Request Committee recommended a reduction in the participation amount and the Board approved funding to be held at $25,000 per year, until such time as the Board opts to change the amount or stop participation. During a presentation by the YMCA for the 2011 budget, the Township Board opted to increase funding for the YMCA Partners of Youth Program by $25,000 to a total of $50,000 for these services and the funding level remained the same until the 2015 Budget, when the Township Board increased the funding to $65,000 to allow the YMCA to expand its outreach programming. For 2017, the Y requested an additional $15,000 (Budget Initiative #26), which was approved during the budget process, bringing the total to $80,000 for 2017. According to the YMCA request (attached), the additional funding will be used to reduce or eliminate the waiting list in the existing programs.
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve 2017 service agreement with South Montgomery County YMCA for the Partners of Youth Program.
