Explanation

BACKGROUND

This ordinance authorizes the Franklin County Municipal Court Administrative and Presiding Judge to enter into contract with Richland County Community Alternative Center (RCCAC), a government agency, and authorizes the expenditure of up to $60,000 from the Municipal Court indigent driver alcohol treatment fund for in-patient chemical dependency treatment for indigent OVI and NON-OVI offenders.

RCCAC is a government program and is licensed by the Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS), and possesses the necessary level of expertise to provide the treatment services and the Court has a need for an OMHAS certified treatment program. RCCAC has no post control felons at their location which increases the safety of the Municipal Court probationers. The facility is a renovated hospital and the sheriff’s office therefore provides better security. This program can accommodate women probationers and they will transport all probationers to and from the program and the court.

This contract is being awarded per City Code 329.30, not-for-profit service contracts. The City of Columbus does not have a facility or the necessary licensed employees to provide these services.

Richland County CAC contract compliance is 34-6002296

FISCAL IMPACT: Funds are available within the 2017 IDAT fund for this purpose, pending the approval of the 2017 IDAT appropriations (0328-2017).

EMERGENCY: This legislation is considered an emergency measure to ensure the proper and timely treatment of probationers.
