Explanation

Background: CAPA plans, organizes and manages Festival Latino, which at one time was coordinated by the Recreation and Parks Department. Funds are needed to secure a variety of performing artists of Latino heritage, promote and market the event, recruit volunteers, host free family activities, oversee event operations, obtain required state and city permits, and clean the venue to the satisfaction of the city.

The Special Events Support Program was created in 2017 by Recreation and Parks to assist with the funding awards for community groups, not profit organizations and neighbors that host free events that celebrate cultural, ethnic and artistic diversity for the entertainment and enjoyment by the greater Columbus community. The program committee awarded this event $25,000 for 2017.

Emergency Justification: Emergency action is requested in order to provide the funding in time for the Summer event.

Financial Impact: This ordinance authorizes an expenditure of $25,000.00 from the Recreation and Parks Special Events Support Program, and $15,000 from the Recreation and Parks Operating Fund 2285 to enter into contract with CAPA.
