Explanation


Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of Recreation and Parks to enter into contract with the Columbus Zoological Park for the purchase of 2,150 tickets to the Columbus Zoo and Zoombezi Bay. The Community Recreation section will take youths attending the School’s Out program to spend a day at the Columbus Zoo and Zoombezi Bay for one day in July 2017. The Community Recreation section will also take various programs at Columbus Recreation Centers to Zoombezi Bay for one day in July 2017 and one day in August 2017. A maximum total of 2,150 youths will participate: 1,800 from Recreation Centers and 350 from the School’s Out program. The ticket fee is $15.99 - $20.99 per person for a maximum total of $36,128.50. All Recreation Center youth participants will reimburse the city for the amount of their ticket. All School’s Out participant tickets will be paid for with CDBG funds. This service is manifestly impractical to bid due to the nature of the service and is a fixed cost commodity.

Fiscal Impact: Funds to cover these expenses have been budgeted in the Recreation and Parks operating fund, $28,782.00 and from the Community Development Block Grant fund, $7,346.50.
