City Sets Funding Aside to Support Educational Institutions
On June 7, 2022, the City Council approved $250,000 in fiscal year 2022-2023 as part of the 5-Year CIP Plan for a School District Project in accordance with the City’s General Plan Element to maintain relationships with educational institutions, as they represent a cornerstone of the community’s foundation. The exact project scope and location is determined in partnership with MBUSD.
To promote campus safety and security, MBUSD
requested to use the city’s allocation of $250,000 to reimburse a
portion of the total cost to install robust surveillance systems at
Manhattan Beach Middle School and Mira Costa High School. The
reimbursement will support camera installation and connection to a
recording and monitoring system.
The remaining balance of approximately $150,000 to fund the project will be paid out of MBUSD’s General Fund using funds budgeted for infrastructure projects.
