Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to execute agreements with, and to provide funding to, the YMCA of Central Ohio (the “YMCA”) relative to the implementation and administration of the Youth Litter Pick-Up Program/Earth Service Corps.
The new initiative, resulting from a partnership between the YMCA and the Department of Public Service, will employ 400 youth and young adults to collect litter and debris at various locations in the Hilltop, Linden, Near East Side, Far East Side, South Side and Northland neighborhoods during the summer and fall of 2021. Participants, who will be supervised by the YMCA, will earn above minimum wage and will work an average of 20 hours per week during the inaugural 12 weeks of the program, with a reduced work schedule of 8 hours per week in September and October so as not to conflict with school, athletics, or other obligations. Summer participants also will receive soft skills training and lunch daily.
The Department of Public Service has allocated up to $2,001,175.00 to support the aforementioned effort.
2. FISCAL IMPACT
Grant funding in the amount of $2,001,175.00 is available in Fund 2209 (Recovery Fund), Subfund 220902 (Community Recovery). The funds are appropriated.
