Recommended Action

  2. Adopt budget resolution adjusting the fiscal year 2021-22 Sheriff’s Office Patrol budget appropriations by $121,955.
Strategic Plan Goal(s)
Safe Communities
Reason for Recommended Action/Background
Since fiscal year 2009-10, the Sheriff’s Office has received Off Highway Vehicle grant funds from the State to increase patrol on public and private lands around Cache Creek and regions of habitat restoration due to the ongoing trespassing issues between OHV riders and Yolo County land owners.  The Sheriff’s Office has continued to receive State grant funding through the subsequent fiscal years, which has allowed the Sheriff’s Office to augment overtime, purchase equipment and other resources, and attend specific trainings to help establish an OHV enforcement team. The Sheriff’s Office OHV Team also provides public outreach and educational opportunities to the citizens of Yolo County who wish to learn more about OHV programs and recreation.
The total OHV Law Enforcement project expenditure amount for Fiscal Year 2020-21 is $149,274.  The Sheriff’s Office has received $111,955 in Law Enforcement OHV grant funds for 2021-22. A 25% match of the total project expenditures, $37,319, is required.  The match will be met with $10,000 from the annual OHV contribution from the Natural Resources Division.  The remaining $27,319 will be met with in-kind match of already budgeted salaries and benefits.  The grant would fund overtime hours used by Sheriff’s Office staff to patrol OHV riding areas, and fuel and maintenance for the OHV patrol vehicles.
On October 26, 2021, the Board directed staff to draft an ordinance banning the use of OHVs in Cache Creek. While the Sheriff’s Office understands this may affect how we patrol Cache Creek and the OHV grant program in the future, we believe it is important to maintain a robust OHV program while a forthcoming OHV park is planned. By continuing to accept these grant funds, the Sheriff’s office can continue to provide patrol, educational outreach, and maintain equipment dedicated to the OHV program until a committed OHV riding area is established.
The Sheriff's Office requests Board authority to approve the OHV Law Enforcement Grant Agreement and adopt the Budget Resolution adjusting the Sheriff’s Office Patrol budget.

Explanation (Expenditure and/or Revenue)
Further explanation as needed:

There is no associated cost to the County by approving the budget resolution and no General Fund or Public Safety Funds are required to fund the staff hours and services and supplies. Funding in the amount of $111,955 has been received for the Fiscal Year 2021-22 Off Highway Vehicle Law Enforcement Grant. $137,099 is requested for staff hours to patrol OHV riding areas, attend trainings, and participate in community outreach programs. $12,175 is requested for fuel and maintenance. The Sheriff’s Office now requests approval of a budget resolution to add the $111,955 in unbudgeted grant funds to the FY 2021-22 budget and appropriate the required matching funds of $10,000 from Natural Resources. The remaining match of $27,319 will be met with already budgeted in-kind salaries and benefits.
