Explanation

Background: The following legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Finance and Management, on behalf of the Department of Health, to execute those documents necessary to enter into a lease agreement by and between the City, as Tenant, and Thirty Four Corp., an Ohio corporation with offices located at 34 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio, as Landlord, for the lease of 2,900 square feet of office space located at 5701 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio for use as a Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program Clinic. This new location will replace the current WIC Clinic site leased at 4550 Indianola Avenue, which is too small to meet the current needs of the WIC Program. The current lease at Indianola Avenue will expire September 30, 2019. The Real Estate Management Office has negotiated a new lease with Thirty Four Corp.with terms agreeable to the Department of Health. The lease will have an initial term of one year with four consecutive automatic one year renewal options.

Fiscal Impact: Columbus Public Health has applied for a grant from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to fund the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program for the period October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020. The WIC budget provides for the annual rent payments associated with the lease of this real property to be used as clinic space for the WIC Program and funds will be released post this ordinance so it is necessary to secure funds through another Health Department Grants Fund until the Notice of Award is received. The Health Department Grants Fund will be reimbursed for the annual rent expense associated with this lease upon receipt of the WIC Notice of Award from ODH.

Emergency Action: This legislation is presented as an emergency measure to allow the City to immediately execute the Lease to allow the Landlord sufficient time to construct and complete tenant improvements for WIC and prepare the premises for occupancy by September 30, 2019.
