Explanation

1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into a contract with the Franklin County Engineer’s Office (FCEO) for snow and ice removal services. It also authorizes the Department of Public Service to reimburse the FCEO in the amount of up to $650,000.00 for snow and ice removal services for the 2019-2020 winter season with funds from the Street Construction Maintenance & Repair Fund, Fund 2265.

In order to maximize operating efficiencies, County and City forces occasionally service portions of the others’ roadways that lie within their respective jurisdictions. Under this agreement, each entity is responsible for tracking the labor, equipment and materials used in order to determine the cost for all snow plow and ice removal activities performed. The FCEO typically services more City of Columbus roadways than the City services County roadways. The entities settle up once each year, and this payment represents the estimated net amount due to the FCEO.

2. FISCAL IMPACT
This ordinance authorizes the expenditure of up to $650,000.00 from the Street Construction Maintenance & Repair Fund, Fund 2265. This is a planned and budgeted annual expenditure.

3. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
Emergency action is requested so as to provide reimbursement to the Franklin County Engineer’s Office at the earliest time possible in the interest of good inter-jurisdictional relations and to have this agreement in place before the winter season.
