Explanation

BACKGROUND: The City of Columbus received funds for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City of Columbus, as Responsible Entity must have all federally funded projects prepared in compliance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations, 24 CFR Part 58, and 24 CFR Part 93.301. The City has a current contract with Stone Environmental Engineering and Science Inc. to provide consultation services and assist the City in preparing environmental review records authorized by PO256896 in an amount not to exceed $40,000.00 for the period of January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to modify the existing contract with Stone Environmental Engineering and Science Inc. to increase compensation for services in an amount not to exceed $20,000.00 for a new contract amount of $60,000.00.

FISCAL IMPACT: This contract is entirely funded by a grant award from HUD. This grant does not generate revenue or require a City match. The increased contract amount will authorize $20,000.00 in administrative grant expenditures.
