RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends that City Council approve and accept the State Highway Traffic Safety Billings Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) overtime grant in the amount of $10,000 for the period of October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022, and authorize the Mayor to sign the Standard Agreement.  
BACKGROUND (Consistency with Adopted Plans and Policies, if applicable)
The State of Montana, State Highway Traffic Safety Division, has awarded the City a $10,000 grant for deterrence of violations such as drinking and driving, speeding and lack or misuse of safety restraints.  The grant will fund overtime for the officers involved in these traffic details.  The grant begins on October 1, 2021, and ends September 30, 2022.  Staff requests that the City Council approve and accept this grant.  
ALTERNATIVES
City Council may:
  • Approve the Standard Agreement for traffic enforcement funding; or,
  • Not Approve the Standard Agreement for traffic enforcement funding, which would eliminate overtime funding for specialized traffic checkpoints and details.  
FISCAL EFFECTS
There is no financial impact to the City as there is no City match required for this grant.
