Explanation

Background: This ordinance will authorize the City Auditor to set up a certificate in the amount of $150,000.00 for various expenditures for labor, material and equipment in conjunction with existing shelterhouses and other permitted facilities improvements managed by the Recreation and Parks Department. These are unanticipated expenditures that may include, but are not limited to, items such as hard surfaces, plumbing, roofing, flooring, lighting, fencing, repairs, equipment improvements, etc. Contracts will be entered into in compliance with the procurement provisions of the Columbus City Codes Chapter 329.

The community has expressed the desire for well-kept and updated facilities through public workshops, social media, and direct contact with City staff. Rental customers expect facilities to be in good condition for their events.

Area(s) Affected: The entire City of Columbus is affected by having the funding in place to act efficiently on issues that arise in our facilities.

Master Plan Relation: This project will support the mission of the Recreation and Parks Master Plan by helping to ensure that facilities remain safe, updated, and user friendly.

Fiscal Impact: $150,000.00 is budgeted and available in the Recreation and Parks Voted Bond Fund 7702 to meet the financial obligations of these various expenditures.
