Board of Representatives
Re: Request for Suspension of the Rules To Consider Resolution Authorizing the Mayor to Enter into Agreement with the State Department of Public Health for Development of Capacity for Public Health Response to Bioterrorism Incidents
Dear Mr. Martin:
On December 5, 2003 the State of Connecticut sent a letter to the City of Stamford informing the City of its obligations for implementation of the Bioterrorism Grant made available in the amount of $114,946. Those obligations include a deadline of January 5, 2004 to provide contract documents that are signed by the individual authorized to do so by the governing body per adopted resolution. Since the Board of Representatives will not meet until January 5, 2004, I am requesting that the Board of Representatives consider the attached resolution at their January meeting so that the City can respond to the requirements of the State in as timely a manner as possible.
The Bioterrorism Grant will facilitate the Stamford Health Department in completing the following:
If you have any questions, please call Dr. Johnnie Lee at 977-4396, or Sandra L. Dennies, at 977-4190.
Very truly yours,
Dannel P. Malloy
