Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Development to amend a grant from the Roadwork Development (629) Account of the Ohio Development Services Agency valued at up to $1,000,000.00 for costs associated with the completion of public roadwork improvements and utility relocation in support of the expansion of operations by CoverMyMeds LLC; and to declare an emergency.
Explanation
BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to amend a grant from the Roadwork Development (629) Account of the Ohio Development Services Agency (the “Grantor”) valued at up to $1,000,000 for costs associated with the completion of public roadwork improvements and utility relocation in support of the relocation and expansion of operations by CoverMyMeds LLC (“CoverMyMeds”). City Council passed Ordinance 3263-2018 on November 16, 2018 authorizing the Department of Development to apply for and accept a 629 Grant from the Grantor. This amendment will adjust the project scope to include the relocation of utilities from McKinley Avenue to Dublin Road. This amendment will allow the City to meet the required percentage of local funds expended to leverage the full $1,000,000 grant.

These roadwork and utility improvements are necessary to maintain current traffic flow with additional traffic volume near the Project Site along McKinley Ave., Souder Ave., Dublin Rd., John St., Hartford Ave., and in the general area as a result of this investment. These improvements to the existing utility and roadway network will aid in supporting the expansion of operations of CoverMyMeds and other growing employers in the Franklinton neighborhood. Expected improvements include the relocation of an overhead 69KV electric facility, pavement widening, modifications to pavement markings, new turn lanes, and new traffic signals.

FISCAL IMPACT: There is no cost to apply for and accept the state roadwork development grants.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency legislation is required to allow for immediate application and execution of the Roadwork Development Grant, which is necessary to facilitate the construction of the utility relocation and roadway improvements and to maintain the Project schedule.
