RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approval of an agreement between the City of Corpus Christi, the Port of Corpus Christi Authority, and Nueces County related to the Nueces County Local Emergency Planning Committee partnership. 
BACKGROUND
Nueces County, the City of Corpus Christi and the Port of Corpus Christi Authority entered into the first Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) agreement during October of 1992. The LEPC partnership has proven to be a valuable mechanism for the coordination of emergency management planning and response to a broad range of disasters involving hazardous materials. 
DISCUSSION

Three primary changes have been suggested by the LEPC Executive Committee and are presented in the proposed agreement: 
1. The fiscal year is changed from August 1 through July 31 to October 1 through September 30 to reflect the current fiscal year of the City of Corpus Christi. 
2. The provisions for an interest bearing account are removed as recommended by the internal audit.
3. Reference to the operation of a unified emergency operation center are removed to reflect the current organizational structure of the City of Corpus Christi and Nueces County emergency management programs.
