Explanation

BACKGROUND:

The City of Columbus, Ohio, Department of Public Service, Division of Design and Construction (“City”), is engaged in the Roadway Improvement - Lazelle Road (“Project”). This project requires cooperation with CSX Transportation, Inc., and the Norfolk Southern Railway Company, which are both Virginia corporations (“Railroads”), within the Project’s limits. Columbus City Ordinance ? 1859-2012 previously authorized the City to enter into engineering review agreements (“Agreements”) with the Railroads. In order to complete the Project, the City needs additional funds to enter into the engineering review agreements with the Railroads for the Project. Therefore, this ordinance authorizes the Columbus City Auditor to increase the Project’s existing Auditor’s Certificate, AC034066, by Eighty Thousand, Two Hundred Seventy-seven, and 00/100 U.S. Dollars ($80,277.00) from the Street and Highway Improvement Fund, Fund ? 766.

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE ?: CSX Transportation, Inc. is 546000720; & Norfolk Southern Railway Company is 536002016. Ordinance No. 1859-2012 listed the incorrect contract compliance number for Norfolk Souther Railway Company. It was listed as 487569384. It should have been listed as 536002016. The contract compliance number in Ordinance 1859-2012 needs to be corrected with the correct number.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding for the Project’s Agreements with the Railroads is available from the Street and Highway Improvement Fund, Fund ? 766. A transfer and an amendment to the 2013 Capital Improvements Budget is necessary to provide for sufficient cash and authority for this Project for the Department of Public Service.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: Emergency action is requested in order to allow the Project to proceed without delay, which will preserve the public peace, property, health, safety, and welfare of those individuals living and traveling within the area of the Project.
