Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance provides $638,581.03 to prevent inspection deficits for capital improvement projects within the Department of Public Service and within the Department of Development.

Construction inspection funding is normally authorized in legislation seeking Council approval to award a construction project. The amount of inspection funding needed for a project is estimated by taking a percentage of the project’s construction cost. Occasionally the funds set-up for inspection are insufficient to cover the inspection of the project through completion due to reasons that include unforeseen conditions, weather, and construction change orders. It is then necessary to request additional funding for the estimated amount of remaining inspection costs.

This ordinance authorizes additional funds to prevent inspection deficits for the following projects:
