Subject: Safety Issues on Council's Monday night agenda

Folks:

There is no need to do anything on these communications, but I thought you might be interested in some of the grant money that comes in from various places to fund bits and pieces of our public safety programs. Also, at the bottom of this email, there is a link to a report on Community Policing that Councilor Cheung submitted.

Feel free to come speak about these issues Monday night if you wish, remembering we are meeting back at City Hall again. You can sign up by phone between 9 and 3 on Monday at 617-349-4280 or in person at City Hall between 5 and 6. Public comment sign up stops at 6, though the comment period itself may last longer. You may also email the entire Council at Council@Cambridgema.gov.

Thanks a lot.

All emails to and from this City address should be considered to be subject to Massachusetts’s Public Records laws. Private emails may be sent to Craig@CraigKelley.org. To be removed from this list, click here.



City Manager Letter

September 21, 2015

To the Honorable, the City Council:

I am hereby requesting the appropriation of a Homeland Security Grant from the City of Boston for $10,906.27 to the Grant Fund Fire Salary and Wages account.

The City has received this grant, as reimbursement, for trainings performed in conjunction with the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI). The UASI committee coordinates the emergency planning in UASI communities, which include Cambridge. The City of Boston is the fiscal agent for the Urban Area Security Initiative and Homeland Security Funds. This grant will cover the City's costs, which have already been incurred, for participation in the trainings.

Very truly yours,

Richard C. Rossi
