 DEPARTMENT: Health - Environmental Health Bureau

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the Board of Supervisors:
Authorize the Interim Director of Health, or his designee, on behalf of Monterey County, as Lead
Agency for the County and the twelve incorporated cities of Monterey County, to execute and
submit all necessary applications, contracts, payment requests, agreements, annual reports,
expenditure reports, documents and amendments thereto for the purposes of securing Used Oil
Payment Program funds for FY 10-11 in an amount not to exceed $200,000, and for subsequent
agreements for FY 11-12, FY 12-13, FY 13-14 and FY 14-15 in amounts not to exceed $250,000
annually, and to implement and carry out the purposes specified in the applications.

SUMMARY:

The Health Department’s Environmental Health Bureau coordinates a countywide Used Oil and
Filter Collection and Recycling Program. California State’s Department of Resources Recycling
and Recovery (CalRecycle) provides annual funding to local jurisdictions to implement their Used
Oil and Filter Collection and Recycling Programs. CalRecycle requires specific language from the
applicant’s governing body to authorize the application for, and implementation of, the grant. The
proposed resolution satisfies those requirements.

DISCUSSION:

Since 1994, Monterey County, through the Health Department’s Environmental Health Bureau, has
administered a countywide Used Oil and Filter Collection and Recycling Program. This program
promotes the proper disposal and recycling of used motor oil and oil filters for residents,
commercial and recreational boaters, and small farmers in Monterey County. The County provides
community education and makes various outlets for the proper disposal and recycling of used
motor oil and oil filters available through curbside collection, residential drop-off centers, and
marine and agricultural oil collection centers.

CalRecycle, formerly known as the California Integrated Waste Management Board, is authorized
to make payments to qualifying local jurisdictions for implementation of their used oil programs.
These funds are used to cover costs related to personnel time, acquisition of equipment, supplies,
and training to enhance Used Motor Oil and Filter Recycling Program activities.
CalRecycle’s procedures for administering the Used Oil Payment Program require the applicant’s
governing body to declare by resolution, using specific language requirements, certain
authorizations related to the administration of the Used Oil Payment Program. Since 1994, the
Board of Supervisors has passed an annual Continuing Grant Resolution to authorize the Director
of Health to apply for various yearly grants, including the Used Oil Payment Program (formerly
known as the Used Oil Block Grant). The proposed resolution would supersede the previous
Continuing Grant Resolution dated April 27, 2010, in order to satisfy CalRecycle’s specific
language requirements.

OTHER AGENCY INVOLVEMENT:

CalRecycle has requested the specific language shown in the proposed resolution.

The cities of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Del Rey Oaks, Gonzales, Greenfield, King City, Marina,
Monterey, Pacific Grove, Salinas, Sand City, Seaside and Soledad have authorized Monterey
County to act as Lead Agency for the purposes of applying for and administering the Used Oil
Payment Program (Attachment).

FINANCING:

There is no Net County Contribution of discretionary funds resulting from this Board action.
Sufficient appropriations and revenues are included in Environmental Health’s Fiscal Year 2010-11
adopted budget.
