    U.S. EPA is executing a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) and has asked South Coast AQMD to act as the SEP administrator to install and maintain air filtration systems at schools in environmental justice communities.  This action is to recognize up to $167,967 into the Air Filtration Fund (75).  These actions are to also execute agreements to install and maintain air filtration systems in an amount not to exceed $159,569, execute or amend access agreements with local school districts, amend contracts to purchase additional filters using unspent administrative funds, and reimburse the General Fund for administrative costs up to $8,398 for SEP administration.  (Reviewed:  Technology Committee, July 26, 2019; Recommended for Approval)

Gonsalves & Son. These actions are to appropriate $79,000 from the General Fund, Undesignated Fund Balance, to the Legislative, Public Affairs & Media FY 2019-20 budget; and modify the contracts, with an increase of $39,500 each, for California Advisors, LLC and Quintana Watts & Hartmann.

This action is to amend a contract with Willdan Energy Solutions to implement pre-commercial efficiency projects for the South Coast AQMD building in an amount not to exceed $665,000 from the Infrastructure Improvement Fund (02).

Staff built on the technical evaluation and public process from the prior year, and has conducted additional public outreach and gathered community input to help prioritize two communities for Year 2 of this program. The first proposed community is the South East Los Angeles community of South Gate, Florence-Firestone (eastern portion), Walnut Park, Huntington Park (western portion), Cudahy, Bell Gardens (southern portion). The second proposed community is the Eastern Coachella Valley community of Indio, Coachella, Thermal, Oasis, Mecca, North Shore.
