Background and Analysis:
The Interlocal Agreement (ILA) forming the Sea Level Rise Response Collaborative allows for the establishment of a Member-funded staff Liaison position to help administer and facilitate the Collaborative. The purpose of the Liaison position is to provide administrative support for the Executive Team and other Collaborative Committees (e.g., meeting logistics, agenda setting, public notice, record keeping) and to conduct additional tasks necessary to implement the Collaborative's annual work plan.

The ILA states that initially, City of Olympia staff will fill the Liaison position, and each Member will contribute funds to defray the Liaison costs incurred by the City. Staff plan to present the Collaborative's work plan and budget for approval at the next Executive Committee meeting on September 6, 2024. However, the current ILA requires the Executive Committee to approve the budget for Liaison costs by August 31, each year.

Staff are requesting an extension to the approval timeline for the 2025 Sea Level Rise Collaborative Liaison budget, until the next Executive Committee meeting on September 6, 2024. If approved, staff will provide the budget proposal, including anticipated Liaison costs, for consideration at the next Executive Committee meeting.
