BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded additional funds from the Ohio Department of Health through the Centers for Disease Control for 2016/2017 Public Health Emergency Preparedness Grant Program. This ordinance is necessary to accept and appropriate additional funds in the amount of $98,547.00 for a total grant award of $1,095,535.00 ending June, 30 2017.

The Office of Emergency Preparedness writes and maintains the Columbus Public Health Emergency Response Plan. This Plan contains over 50 planning annexes such as infectious disease response and environmental health hazard response and mitigation plans covering the Columbus and Worthington jurisdictions.
