Meeting Date: 06/16/2020  

SUBJECT:
Consideration of the continuation of the Fire Department's membership in the CONFIRE Joint Use Authority for Fiscal Year 2020-2021 and pay associated annual fees in an amount not to exceed $665,531 (Fire Chief Topoleski) 
MOTION(S):

If the City Council determines that staff’s recommendation is appropriate, the following motion is provided:

I move to approve the Fire Department's continuance as a member of the CONFIRE Joint Use Authority and pay the associated annual fees in an amount not to exceed $665,531.
RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the City Council approve the Redlands Fire Department's continuance as a member of the CONFIRE Joint Use Authority and pay the associated annual fees in an amount not to exceed $665,531.
DISCUSSION:

In August 1990, the City Council formally approved the membership of the Redlands Fire Department to join the cities of Colton, Loma Linda, Rialto, and the County of San Bernardino Consolidated Fire Agency to form CONFIRE. The primary function of CONFIRE is to provide for a secondary public safety answering point for 9-1-1 services, fire/emergency medical dispatching, and information technology support. While the CONFIRE Joint Use Authority (JPA) agreement will apply until such time as the City of Redlands elects to discontinue participation, staff requires authorization to pay the associated fees. The projected annual service fee for Fiscal Year 2020-2021 is $665,531. This cost has been included in the Fire Department's budget.
ALTERNATIVES:

Not authorize the continuance of the Redlands Fire Department as a member of the CONFIRE Joint Use Authority.
