RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider rescinding the Interlocal Agreement between Nueces County and the City of Corpus Christi executed on June 3, 2015; and execute an Interlocal Agreement between Nueces County and the City of Corpus Christi for the purpose of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program FY 2015 Local Solicitation Award.
BACKGROUND
The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime and to improve the criminal justice system. JAG replaces the Byrne Formula and Local Law Enforcement Block Grant (LLEBG) programs with a single funding mechanism that simplifies the administration process for grantees. The procedure for allocating JAG funds is a formula based on population and crime statistics, in combination with a minimum allocation to ensure that each state and territory receives an appropriate share.
DISCUSSION
On June 3, 2015, the Commissioners Court executed the Interlocal Agreement with the City of Corpus Christi, which awarded the County $84,306 for a period to run from October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2019. However, some of the information contained within the Agreement was incorrect.

Therefore, we recommend rescinding the previously approved Interlocal Agreement and executing a new agreement with the revised award of $74,556 and a grant period of October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2017. These monies will be used to fund a drug prosecutor’s salary in the District Attorney’s Office and the remaining funds will be used by the Sheriff’s Office for law enforcement training.
