Explanation
Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Safety to expend $165,000.00 for the use of the Franklin County Correction Centers for the housing of City of Columbus prisoners. The City of Columbus and Franklin County entered into a contract, numbered CT-15777, that charges a per diem amount for the housing of prisoners, thus eliminating the need for an annual reconciliation. This contract, signed in 1994 by the County Commissioners and the city is amended periodically only for per diem increases. The current per diem amount of $82.00 per day was established on January 1st, 2018. This ordinance is a request to encumber an additional $165,000.00 towards jail per diem expenses to ensure that sufficient funds are available to pay for expenditures through February of 2019. These funds are in addition to the $3,900,000.00 that was established for jail expenses earlier this year.
