Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes an agreement with the Ohio Traffic Safety Office (OTSO), State of Ohio, for the Drugged Driving Enforcement Program - FFY20 and to appropriate funds to cover the costs of the program. The OTSO works to reduce high-traffic related crashes to save lives and reduce injuries and economic loss. This program will target reducing fatal crashes through enforcement activity by uniformed officers investigating and enforcing drugged drivers with a focus on impairment other than alcohol. The agreement authorizes reimbursement for the overtime costs of sworn personnel trained at the ARIDE level working in the program. The funding for the agreement is dependent on federal funds from the US Department of Transportation for Federal Fiscal Year 2020 and follows the fiscal year period, October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: Emergency legislation is necessary to make funds available for the grant funded activity period that started October 1, 2019.

FISCAL IMPACT: This ordinance authorizes the appropriation of $15,035.84 from the unappropriated balance of the General Government Grant Fund for the Division of Police to cover the costs associated with the Drugged Driving Enforcement Program (DDEP) - FFY20.

FFY19 expenditures were $13,523.59 as of the date of this legislation.
