CATALYTIC CONVERTER PROGRAM. The City of Milpitas is launching a new program to deter automobile catalytic converter theft crimes. The business enrollment phase is currently underway. The program is funded by a $200,000 allocation of Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars and will be available for 3 months or until the funding is expended, whichever is sooner. In partnership with the City, local automotive business will provide metal rebar or protective plating services to add an additional layer of protection to deter catalytic converter theft for Milpitas residents. Milpitas residency will be determined by the Milpitas Police Department through an online system. As part of this program, the City will reimburse automotive businesses in the amount of $400/vehicle, up to a maximum of $10,000 per business. If the cost of metal rebar or protective plating exceeds $400/vehicle, the Milpitas resident will be responsible for the remainder of the cost. Etching is not eligible for reimbursement through this program. The City encourages Milpitas residents to register and avail of the $400/vehicle discount when the program launches in the Fall.
