Explanation
BACKGROUND:
This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to waive the competitive bidding requirement of Columbus City Code Chapter 329 and enter into contract with various contractors that provide emergency home repair services to low and moderate-income households in Columbus. Emergency repair services will include heating, plumbing, electrical and other emergency home repairs needed to protect the health and safety to correct substandard and deteriorating conditions of homes owned by low and moderate- income household citizens of Columbus.

Five companies responded to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ008299) and all those who responded were selected, although one contractor later withdrew.

The selected companies and contract amounts are:
American Mechanical (vendor number 0074882, expiration: 2/27/19): $100,000;
Ohio Mechanical (vendor number 005774, expiration: 6/18/20): $50,000;
Watt 1 (vendor number 021699, expiration 1/29/20): $50,000; and
TFH-EB dba The Water Works (vendor number: 014210, expiration: 10/17/18): $25,000.

The Community Development Block Grant Affordable Housing Opportunity Program (AHOP) represents the City's commitment to the preservation and production of housing units affordable to very-low, low and moderate-income individuals. Funds will be used to meet housing needs identified in the Consolidated Plan.

Emergency action is necessary to allow for the continuation of emergency repair services.

FISCAL IMPACT:
Funding is available in the amount up to $225,000.00 in 2018 CDBG funds to contract with contractors to provide for the Emergency Repair Program.
