Explanation

Background: This ordinance authorizes the City Auditor to establish an auditor certificate in the amount of $140,000.00 for various expenditures for labor, material and equipment in conjunction with the existing Champions Golf Course Clubhouse Improvements Project. The clubhouse is currently under construction and will be opening in the spring of 2020. The new facility will have a 280 guest event space, an 80 guest eating area, commercial kitchen, pro shop and office space. $100,000.00 will be allocated for furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the clubhouse. These expenditures may include, but are not limited to, items such as tables, chairs, televisions, and any other items necessary for the operation of the clubhouse. Contracts will be entered into in compliance with the procurement provisions of Columbus City Code Chapter 329. $40,000.00 will be allocated for construction inspection through the City of Columbus Department of Public Service (DPS).

Emergency Justification: Emergency action is requested so that funding for outstanding construction inspection billing be made available for this project as soon as possible. It will also help ensure that all items necessary for the operation of the clubhouse are procured and ready for the opening of the facility.

Area(s) Affected: All golfers and event attendees, from Central Ohio...
