RECOMMENDATION
Authorize/Execute a contract with Gulf Coast Hurricane Shutters for RFP 2953-14 Hurricane Shutters for County Courthouse EOC Office, Keach Family Library, and RMB Regional Fairgrounds Conference Center.
BACKGROUND
The Project is to furnish and install hurricane shutters on various size windows for the Courthouse 5th floor EOC office, Keach Family Library and the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds Conference Center.  The project is funded through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and administered by the state of Texas. The HMGP can fund mitigation measures that protect both public and private property, so long as the measures fit within the overall mitigation strategy for the disaster area, are cost effective, and comply with all Federal and State program guidelines. The project intends to harden critical facilities susceptible to wind storm damages that are essential to the continuation of critical government services and emergency operations. The facilities identified for the installation of permanent or semi-permanent window protection include the Emergency Operations Center, Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds Conference Center and the Keach Family Library.

DISCUSSION
FEMA will provide federal funds up to 75% of the cost of appropriate hazard mitigation projects. The County must contribute at least 25% using either in-kind or cash match. The total project will be $221,651; $166,238 in federal funds with a $55,413 required cash match.
