Explanation

BACKGROUND

The purpose of this ordinance is to appropriate $10,416 in the Neighborhood Initiative Fund to Columbus Public Health to enter into contracts with Compumeric Engineering (dba SECURR) and MedPro Waste for the purchase of needle disposal containers and maintenance of said containers. Columbus, along with other major cities, has been plagued by an opiate epidemic that is a crisis of unparalleled proportion, with devastating, often deadly consequences. A necessary component to combatting the negative effects of this epidemic, specifically the spread of infectious diseases, is the safe and sanitary disposal of needles and related materials. These needle containers will be strategically placed on the South and West sides of Columbus, and these contracts will allow funding for their ongoing maintenance for a period of three years. The contract with SECURR will cover the costs of two containers and shipping ($2,496.00), while the contract with MedPro Waste will cover maintenance and disposal of waste ($2,640.00 / yr over 3 years). Due to there not being sufficient time to obtain formal bids to satisfy the public need, it is necessary to waive the competitive bidding provisions of the Columbus City Codes in order to enter into these contracts. This ordinance authorizes the appropriation of $10,416 to Columbus Public Health within the Neighborhood Initiative Fund.
