Explanation
BACKGROUND: In 2005, the Northland Alliance, the Morse Road Exploratory Committee and the City of Columbus Department of Development initiated an effort with property owners on Morse Road, from Indianola Avenue to Cleveland Avenue, to create a Special Improvement District (SID). The Morse Road Special Improvement District (SID), a non-profit organization, per City Council approval, was created in August of 2006 to go into effect in January 2007. As part of the Morse Road SID, the Development Department and the Public Service Department entered into a Tri-Party Cooperative Share Agreement that authorized the Morse Road SID to perform land beautification and maintenance services on City-owned land in the Morse Road SID area. For services performed, the City of Columbus agreed to pay the Morse Road SID up to $50,000 per year for the 10 years of the SID. The Morse Road SID has not received full compensation for services performed over the past three years. The last payment to the Morse Road SID was made in 2018. The payment amount was $75,000.

This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into an agreement with the Morse Road SID for the purpose of appropriating $27,136 to the Morse Road SID for services performed as authorized by the Tri-Party Cooperative Agreement.

Emergency action is requested to allow the Director of the Department of Development to enter into an agreement with the Morse Road SID for the purpose of reimbursing the Morse Road SID for services performed as authorized by the Tri-Party Cooperative Share Agreement.

FISCAL IMPACT: The funding of $27,136 for this agreement has been budgeted in the 2019 General Fund budget.
