Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
The Department of Public Service, Traffic Management Division, employs personnel that are engaged in traffic sign, signal, permanent pavement marking application, and bikeway improvements on behalf of the Department of Development. Project costs incurred by the Traffic Management Division operating fund are salaries, overhead, overtime, equipment and other direct costs. The Traffic Management Division budgets the personnel and additional costs within the division’s operating fund (the Street Construction, Maintenance and Repair Fund). These project costs are capital eligible and doing so is consistent with earlier efforts by the division to reimburse its operating fund when the operating fund incurred expenses more appropriate to capital improvement funding.

This ordinance authorizes the expenditure of up to $312,351.78 for the purposes of reimbursing the Traffic Management Division operating fund for personnel expenses incurred on previous and future Department of Development street projects, for the purchase of materials to replenish materials used to complete past projects, and to purchase materials needed for upcoming Department of Development street projects. The material purchases will be made using universal term contracts established by the Purchasing Department. Employee wages, overtime, overhead and equipment costs will be tracked by the Traffic Management Division and recovered through internal invoice.

This legislation also authorizes the Finance and Management Director to associate all general budget reservations resulting from this ordinance with the current, pending and future Universal Term Contract Purchase Agreements listed below for Traffic Management & Control for the Division of Traffic Management.
