BE IT RESOLVED, that Agreement A189009 with Three Rivers Park District for labor and construction services provided by the Client and Community Restoration’s Productive Day program during the period August 13, 2018 through December 31, 2018 in the receivable amount of $100,000, be approved; that the initial project at Elm Creek Park Reserve in the receivable amount of $25,000 be approved; that the Chair of the Board be authorized to sign the Agreements on behalf of the county; and that the Controller be authorized to accept and disburse funds as directed; and

Client & Community Restoration’s Productive Day Carpentry Training Program provides on the job construction training for probation clients living in the community. The program is up to a yearlong with clients being evaluated every 90 days to determine their readiness for job placement. Clients are referred to the program by probation staff and from non-profit training programs such as Summit Academy, Goodwill Easter Seals, HIRED and others. Participants earn $15/hour while improving their skill level to compete for carpentry jobs in residential or commercial construction. This is a newly-formed successor program to the former Sentencing to Service Homes program which concluded in June.


Under this blanket agreement, Productive Day Program participants will provide general labor and carpentry work for construction, carpentry and general labor tasks for Three Rivers Park District.  They will reimburse Client and Community Restoration at a rate of $1,200 per day, reflecting the cost of the six-person probation crew as well as the carpenter foreman.


The initial project at Elm Creek Park Reserve with an NTE of $25,000 involves the construction of a wooden bridge at Elm Creek Park Reserve as part of a proof of concept, to determine the ability of the newly formed work crews to provide the specified services within the time allotted.
