Explanation
BACKGROUND: On June 3, 2013 Council passed Ordinance 1208-2013 to allow the Director of the Department of Development to enter into a contract with a software services provider, STR LLC, to provide a comprehensive database for the Land Redevelopment Office and to pay the annual user subscription service fee for the first year. The software has enabled the Columbus Land Bank Program to better monitor its growing inventory, track tax foreclosures, merge various datasets into one system, and upgrade how properties are marketed on the City’s website. At this time the Land Bank program needs to pay the annual user subscription service fee, up to $30,000, for the coming year 2017-18. This legislation authorizes the Director of Development to enter into a contract, up to $30,000, to pay the annual user subscription service fee for the coming year 2017-18.

EMERGENCY ACTION: Emergency action is requested so that the operations of the Columbus Land Bank Program can continue without interruption.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funds for this expenditure are available in the Land Management Fund.
