Title: To authorize the Director of Department of Development, or his designee, to sign various loan documents on CDBG, UDAG and USAL repayment loans closed after June 21, 2004; and to declare an emergency.
Explanation
BACKGROUND:
The Economic Development Division has had a small business loan program (Economic Development Loan Program) since the early 1980’s. This loan program was funded by Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Urban Development Action Grant (UDAG) and Urban Site Acquisition Loan (USAL) funds allocated to the City over the years.

City Ordinance 1190-2009 authorized the Development Director to sign various documents pertaining to authorization and servicing of the business loans closed prior to June 21, 2004. These documents include: loan modification agreements, term notes modification agreements, subordination agreements, forbearance agreements; satisfaction of mortgages, UCC filing and releases, consent agreements and assumption agreements.

Several loans which were closed after June 21, 2004 and were directly administered by the Economic Development Division through the Economic Development Loan Program now also require the Development Director to sign various documents pertaining to authorization and servicing of the business loan deals. These documents are the same as previously stated.

This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development, or his designee, to sign various documents associated with the Economic Development Loan Program on loans closed after June 21, 2004 on behalf of the City of Columbus.

Emergency action is requested to allow the Director of the Department of Development to possess the authority to sign loan documents to avoid interruptions in program services for the preservation of the public health, peace, prosperity, safety and welfare.

FISCAL IMPACT: No funds are associated with this legislation
