Recommended Action
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends that the City Council discuss and provide direction regarding transferring prosecution services of State misdemeanors utilizing the Los Angeles County District Attorney, and potentially contracting with the City of Redondo Beach for prosecution and homeless court services.
Body
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
There are significant fiscal implications associated with transferring prosecution services from the County to Redondo Beach, and participating in Redondo's homeless court. Los Angeles County currently offers prosecutorial services to the City at no cost. At the time the City Council agenda packet went out on July 14, the Redondo Beach City Attorney's Office had not provided a cost estimate for prosecution and homeless court services. Hermosa Beach contracts with Redondo Beach for prosecution services at an annual cost of $200,004. That amount does not include participation in Redondo's homeless court. However, the Redondo City Attorney has indicated that Redondo will provide such services to Hermosa in the future.

Manhattan Beach City Councilmembers have requested that the City explore grant funding opportunities for homeless court services. Countywide Measure H funds, which are now administered locally through the South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG), may be utilized for that purpose. Applications for the next round of Measure H grant funding are due to SBCCOG on August 10.
