C) Budget Transfer of $8,500 from the Lake Worth West Portable Classroom Account to establish a project budget for this project.

 

SUMMARY:  The above project was reviewed and recommended for funding by the Office of Community Revitalization on June 27, 2014.  KaBOOM! is a national non-profit organization that focuses on designing and constructing playgrounds for use by children living in socio-economically challenged communities.  Funding from the Lake Worth West Portable Classroom Account will be used to assist in the funding of the KaBOOM! park project.  KaBOOM! will be providing an amount not to exceed $76,500 towards the construction and purchase of the playground equipment, which is 90% of the total cost for the project.  The County will fund $8,500 towards the purchase of the playground equipment, which is 10% of the total project costs.  KaBOOM! is requiring the County pay the $8,500 as an advance payment, prior to the County receiving the playground equipment, due to KaBOOM!’s time restrictions.  An advance payment is permitted pursuant to the Palm Beach County Administrative Code, Section 305.02, which allows the County to make an advance payment for expenses deemed necessary for County business.  In addition to the $8,500, the County will incur additional expenses for conducting two soil tests, removing playground equipment currently located at Lake Worth West Park, site preparation, obtaining all required permits and future maintenance of the playground.  These additional expenses are currently budgeted in Parks and Recreation’s budget.  Lake Worth West Resident Planning Group will indemnify the County, KaBOM! and the Funding Partner through build day for their acts and omissions.  The County will then indemnify KaBOOM! and the Funding Partner, to the extent permitted by law, after build day.
