Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
The Division of Infrastructure Management is responsible for street cleaning in Columbus. Debris gathered, as a result of street cleaning, brush clearing, and other street maintenance activities is dumped at the landfill operated by the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO). The Division of Traffic Management has a need to dispose of traffic installation debris, resulting from the installation of new traffic poles, at the landfill operated by the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO).

This legislation authorizes the expenditure of up to $415,000.00 for tipping fees at SWACO’s landfill.

3. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
The Divisions request emergency designation for the legislation so as to avoid delays of payment to SWACO that could result in the city incurring interest and penalties as specified within the agreement between the City and SWACO.
