RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Agricultural Commissioner, or designee, to execute an agreement with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to reimburse the County an amount not to exceed $52,893 to provide Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM) quarantine response and regulatory enforcement activities for the period July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This agreement provides reimbursement for county expenses not to exceed $52,893 incurred during the period July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. There is no county match of funds nor grant monies involved.


BACKGROUND:

The LBAM was first detected in Contra Costa County in March 2007 and subsequently the County has become generally infested. The CDFA imposed the LBAM Interior Quarantine, for the entirety of Contra Costa County. The United States Department of Food and Agriculture issued a Federal Domestic Quarantine order regulating interstate travel of host materials. This regulation requires all nurseries green waste facilities, community gardens, harvest host plants and commodities within the infested areas be issued quarantine compliance agreements and be inspected every 30 days.  

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

A negative response will result in the Department's failure to meet State mandates and reduce budgeted revenue. This would also negatively impact the County's nursery industry and some growers as they would not be able to meet the requirements to ship host material to non-infested areas outside the county.
