Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to execute agreements with and to reimburse the Franklin County Engineer’s Office for work performed on Dublin Road within the Columbus City limits during a County-led resurfacing project.
The Department of Public Service, Division of Infrastructure Management, determined approximately 1,745 feet of Dublin Road within Columbus between Highpoint Drive and Splitrock Road warranted resurfacing and planned to do so in 2022. The Franklin County Engineer’s Office currently is administering its annual resurfacing program and offered to resurface that same stretch of Dublin Road as part of that effort.
The Department of Public Service will need to execute a reimbursement agreement, and any other such agreements as may be necessary, with the Franklin County Engineer's Office for the work. It will also be necessary to reimburse the Franklin County Engineer’s Office up to $43,059.60 for the cost of the work. This dollar amount is an estimate based upon bid costs received by the Franklin County Engineer’s Office and the anticipated work to be performed. The City’s cost could increase if it is necessary to perform more work than is anticipated. If that should happen, an additional ordinance will be submitted requesting Council’s approval to expend additional funds for the additional work.

2. FISCAL IMPACT
Funding in the amount of $43,059.60 is appropriated and available within the Streets and Highways Bond Fund within the Department of Public Service to support this project. An amendment to the 2019 Capital Improvement Budget is necessary for the purpose of providing sufficient budget authority for this project.
3. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
Emergency action is requested so as to provide funding to the Franklin County Engineer’s Office in time for the work to be included as part of their project.
