Title

Resolution to Approve an Agreement with Washtenaw County on Behalf of its Sheriff’s Office to Provide Drug Abuse Screening Services to Sobriety Court, Veterans Treatment Court, and Mental Health Court Participants ($37,985.00)

Memorandum

This resolution seeks Council approval for an agreement with Washtenaw County on behalf of its Sheriff’s Office for drug abuse screening services to 15th Judicial District Court defendants who are participants in the Sobriety Court, Veterans Treatment Court, and Mental Health Court programs.  These services are funded by grants from the Supreme Court of Michigan State Court Administrative Office for Grant Fiscal Year 2018, and without regard to City Fiscal Year.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Services provided under this agreement will be funded through the State Court Administrative Office Michigan Drug Court Grant Program (SCAO-MDCGP) ($1,310.00), Michigan Veterans Treatment Court Grant Program (SCAO-MVTCGP) ($7,915.00), and Michigan Mental Health Court Grant Program (SCAO-MMHCGP) ($28,760.00). The grant awards were accepted and contracts approved by City Council on October 16, 2017 (R-17-381, R-17-382 and R-17-383).  

 

Approval of a ten percent (10%) contingency amount is also requested to allow the Court to increase services should additional funds become available for drug testing services through an approved State Court Administrative Office grant program budget amendment (e.g., approved grant project line-item budget adjustments within the total program awards.)
