Explanation

1.  BACKGROUND

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a service contract with the City of New Albany (New Albany) and the encumbrance and expenditure of additional funds in order to compensate New Albany for the provision of snow removal services during the 2020-2021 winter season.

 

The parties previously executed a service contract, effective September 8, 2020, for the maintenance, including snow removal and de-icing, of 10.79 lane miles in the vicinity of Hamilton, Dublin-Granville, and New Albany roads. The estimated cost of those services was $21,500.00, which was reflected in the original contract. That agreement required New Albany to track and invoice the Department of Public Service for the actual cost of the work performed, which totaled $26,489.56. The purpose of this ordinance is to enable the Department of Public Service to pay the additional sum owed to New Albany pursuant to the terms of that agreement.

 

The Original Contract Amount:                                                                             $21,500.00                          (PO240579)                         

The total of Modification No. 1:                                                                      $4,989.56                      (This Ordinance)

The contract amount including all modifications:                        $26,489.56 

 

2.  FISCAL IMPACT

Funding in the amount of $4,989.56 is available within Fund 2265, the Street Construction Maintenance and Repair Fund.

 

3.  EMERGENCY DESIGNATION

Emergency action is requested to facilitate the execution of the requisite contract modification in order to satisfy the additional obligation owed to the City of New Albany for services rendered as soon as reasonably practicable.
