(a) Special Reserve Account. The city manager shall establish in the capital improvement fund a special reserve account designated as the "visual art in public places reserve account." Said reserve account shall be credited annually with such funds as determined by the city council and with all funds received by the city for visual art in public places, whether contributed, earned, secured through grants, or otherwise obtained.
(b) Use of Funds. It is intended that funds in the visual art in public places reserve account may be appropriated in the annual budget to obtain and install visual art in public places, to maintain and refurbish visual art in public places when the cost of such maintenance exceeds funds currently available for the maintenance of public property in general, to obtain professional consultants to assist the city and the public art commission in selecting artists and visual art in public places, to preserve meritorious works of art in public places and on private property in public view, and to defray such other capital expenses which are, or may become, an integral part of the visual art in public places program.
(c) Review of Disbursements. Each proposed appropriation for the visual art in public places program and each disbursement from the visual art in public places reserve account shall receive the prior review and advice of the public arts commission.
(d) Additional Funding. The director of arts and culture shall explore on a continuing basis the availability of funds for the visual art in public places program from such organizations as the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Commission, and other public and private agencies.
