Explanation

BACKGROUND: Ordinance 3049-2016 authorized the Board of Health to continue a revenue contract with Franklin County Children Services (FCCS) for the provision of nursing services to children under their care by assigning public health nurses to the FCCS Intake and Investigation Department. These public health nurses perform health assessments of children, make home visits with Intake staff, provide nursing consultation and training, interpret medical reports, and help develop treatment plans for families referred to FCCS.

The Board of Health desires to modify by increasing the revenue contract by $150,000.00 for a maximum contract amount of $475,000.00 to provide FCCS with additional nursing services to assist their efforts in assessing children at risk. This ordinance authorizes the Board of Health to continue in this revenue contract with FCCS for the period January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017 and to authorize the additional appropriation of $150,000.00.

In 2016, the total number of children served by Franklin County Children Services was 32,941. The total number of children served in placement was 4,103.
Emergency action is required to ensure the additional nursing services can meet the deliverables of the revenue contract and to avoid any delays in the payment of nursing services for Franklin County Children Services.

FISCAL IMPACT: Under this revenue contract, FCCS will receive the services of public health nurses from Columbus Public Health. FCCS will reimburse Columbus Public Health for the salaries, fringe benefits and ancillary costs of the nurses assigned to FCCS. Funds received from this grant will be deposited in the Health Department Grants Fund, Fund No. 2251.
