The City of Fairbanks Hotel/Motel Discretionary Fund Committee submitted their recommended allocations for the 2015 distribution of grant funds at their noon meeting on December 15, 2014. The below allocations will not be made official until approved by Resolution of the City Council at the January 5, 2015 Regular City Council Meeting.
Emergency Service Patrol. The expansion of this service to encompass more area over increased hours has had a significantly beneficial impact on the community and emergency responders. This is a mandated service that protects a vulnerable population in our community.
Ambulance Replacement & Cardiac Equipment Upgrades. This would allow the Fairbanks Fire Department to take a 2003 ambulance off of first line response and purchase a new ambulance with needed cardiac equipment.
Information Technology (IT) Disaster Recovery Site. The IT Department would like to create a back up site for our information and possibly even information for the State of Alaska too!
Police Department Evidence Facility. The current secondary evidence building houses large items, such as vehicles and archived records. The building is over 50 years old and is in need of replacement.
Fire Station 3 Emergency Management Storage. Larger pieces of equipment are stored outside and the weather elements make it hard on equipment.
Next step is to meet with the Legislators again in in the late Winter/Early Spring and see if the City of Fairbanks can garner funding toward these projects.
