Title: To authorize the Director of Finance and Management to execute a First Amendment To License Agreement by and between the City and the Franklin County Board of Elections to extend the term for the temporary use of training space located at 750 Piedmont Avenue; and to declare an emergency.
Explanation

Background: This legislation authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to enter into a First Amendment To License Agreement by and between the City and the Franklin County Board of Elections, to extend the term of the License Agreement which provides for temporary use of classroom and common areas for provision of election poll worker training at the City facility located at 750 Piedmont Avenue, Columbus, Ohio. The amendment will extend the term of the agreement through March 31, 2020, specify the rent for the extended term, and provide for any other necessary changes.

As authorized by Ordinance 0647-2019, the Board of Elections has used the classroom and common spaces at the City’s at 750 Piedmont Avenue facility since April 1, 2019 to conduct election poll worker training for the May 2019 Primary Election and the November 2019 General Election. The Piedmont space has worked very well for the Board of Elections as an election poll worker training facility. Recently, the Board of Elections requested that the current License Agreement be extended through March 31, 2020 to allow for use of the Piedmont space on set dates and times for the training of poll workers for the March 10, 2020 Ohio Primary Election.

Fiscal Impact: No funds are required. The City will receive compensation to offset the City’s cost for provision of utilities and janitorial services provided during the extended term of the License Agreement, and that will be deposited in the General Fund.

Emergency Action: This legislation is presented as emergency in order to allow the Franklin County Board of Elections to secure the 750 Piedmont site as a training location for the March 2020 Ohio Primary and to make necessary preparations for the election poll worker training classes that will begin January 2020.
