Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Stark County Health Department on behalf of the Ohio Injury Prevention Partnership Child Injury Action Group (OIPP CIAG). This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $5,330.00 in grant monies to fund the OIPP CIAG grant program for the period of April 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.

This pilot program addresses barriers to bicycle helmet access and use for youth and reinforces safe active transportation and education for parents, guardians, teachers and students. The program will enhance helmet distribution by encouraging consistent helmet use by installing helmet safety reminder signs next to newly purchased Columbus City Schools bicycle racks. Furthermore, this project will provide comprehensive educational support by developing and communicating key helmet safety messaging to parents, guardians and teachers via a paper resource guide and an accompanying webpage.

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so a delay in service does not occur since the grant starts April 1, 2017.

FISCAL IMPACT: The OIPP CIAG grant program is fully funded ($5,330.00) by the Stark County Health Department and does not require a City match.
