Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes additional funding in the amount of $200,000.00 for the Urban Infrastructure Recovery Fund (UIRF) right-of-way acquisition contingency fund and authorizes the City Attorney to expend said funds to acquire small parcels of additional right-of-way for miscellaneous UIRF projects and for other UIRF right-of-way expenses.

This project is funded by the Urban Infrastructure Recovery Fund (UIRF). UIRF projects are developed as the result of a partnership between City staff in multiple departments and community stakeholders in central city urban areas.

This money will be used by the City Attorney's Office, Real Estate Division, to acquire small parcels of additional right-of-way for miscellaneous UIRF projects and to pay for other UIRF right-of-way expenses when requested to do so by the Department of Public Service.

Funding is available within Fund 7704, the Streets and Highways Bond Fund, Project P440005-100000 (UIRF - Urban Infrastructure Recovery Fund (59-12)). An amendment to the 2019 Capital Improvement Budget is required to establish sufficient budget authority for the expenditure in the proper project.
