File #: 0272-2019    Version: 1
Type: Ordinance Status: Passed
File created: 1/16/2019 In control: Public Service & Transportation Committee
On agenda: 2/25/2019 Final action: 2/28/2019
Title: To authorize the Director of Public Service to allow for the donation of gently used clothing items to various local nonprofit charitable organizations; and to waive relevant sections of Columbus City Code 329 relating to the sale of city-owned personal property.
Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
The Department of Public Service, Division of Infrastructure Management, Division of Traffic Management, Division of Refuse Collection, Division of Design and Construction, Division of Parking Services and the Director’s Office is seeking permission to waive relevant sections of City Code section 329 dealing with the sale of personal property in order to donate used clothing items to local nonprofit charitable organizations. These items have little to no value and would be otherwise discarded. Employees who end employment with the City of Columbus often turn in or leave behind gently used clothing items. The Department feels that donating these items to charity rather than discarding them helps to better support the community and falls in line with the Departments values.

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to allow for the donation of used clothing items to various local nonprofit charitable organizations and to waive relevant sections 329 of the Columbus City Code relating to the Sale of City-owned Personal Property as it applies to this transaction.

2. FISCAL IMPACT
This action has no fiscal impact to the city.
