Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health (CPH) has been awarded a grant from the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) to implement the 2020 SWACO Community Waste Reduction Grant program. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $5,554.86 in grant monies to fund the 2020 SWACO Community Waste Reduction grant program for the period of January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

Pursuant to its Solid Waste Management Plan, SWACO implements programs to increase solid waste reduction, reuse, and recycling within SWACO’s district and awards funding to various organizations to implement such programs. CPH has been selected and awarded a grant as part of the 2020 Community Waste Reduction grant program. The main objectives for the CPH grant program include providing food donation guidance to retail businesses and raising awareness of local food waste, food insecurity, and potential benefits of food donation.

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so a delay in service does not occur since the grant begins January 1, 2020.
