Explanation

BACKGROUND: The City’s Department of Public Utilities (“DPU”) is engaged in acquiring real estate for the Central College Subtrunk Sewer Project (CIP 650033-100003) (“Public Project”). The City must acquire in good faith and accept certain fee simple and lesser real estate located in the vicinity of Central College Road and Harlem Road, Columbus, OH 43081 (collectively, “Real Estate”) in order for DPU to complete the Public Project. Accordingly, DPU requested the City Attorney to acquire the Real Estate in good faith and contract for associated professional services (e.g. surveys, title work, appraisals, etc.) in order for DPU to timely complete the Public Project. The City initially passed Ordinance 3428-2018 authorizing the expenditure of $325,000.00 for the project, and DPU has now determined that an additional $500,000.00 will be needed.

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE: Not applicable.

FISCAL IMPACT: This legislation authorizes the transfer within and expenditure of up to $500,000.00 within the Sanitary Sewer General Obligation Fund 6109 and amends the 2020 Capital Improvement Budget to align authority with the expenditure.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested in order to acquire the Real Estate and allow DPU to timely complete the Public Project without unnecessary delay, which will preserve the public peace, health, property, safety and welfare.
