Explanation

 

Background: This ordinance authorizes the City Auditor to establish a certificate in the amount of $250,000.00 to allow the Director of Recreation and Parks to enter into agreements with Columbus area musicians to provide programming to youth in Central Ohio. This ordinance also provides for the transfer of $576,300.00 from the General Fund to the Recreation and Parks Operating Fund. This transfer is necessary to provide funding for these contracts, as well as additional personnel administrative support costs and other services. This funding is requested at this time due to the need to have additional funding available for the summer season and to ensure that budget authority is aligned with expenditures.  This ordinance will also authorize the appropriation of $42,000.00 from the unappropriated balance of the Community Development Block Grant Fund for the installation of flooring and fitness equipment in the Douglas fitness room.

 

Emergency Justification: Emergency legislation is required in order to have funding available for the provision of additional programming and services during the Recreation and Parks summer season.

 

Fiscal Impact: The fiscal impact of this ordinance will be to increase the Recreation and Parks Operating Fund, 2285, by $576,300.00; to authorize the City Auditor to establish a certificate in the amount of $250,000.00 for contracting with Columbus area musicians in support of youth programming and to appropriate $42,000.00 in the Community Development Block Grant fund 2248.
