Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Finance and Management Director, on behalf of the Division of Police, to associate all general budget reservations resulting from this ordinance with the universal term contract purchase agreement with Arrow Energy to purchase jet “A” fuel for the Division of Police helicopters based on the current universal term contract. Helicopters are used to patrol the airspace above the City of Columbus and will be flying an average of 500 hours per month. The average fuel burn is approximately 25 gallons per hour.

Bid Information: The Purchasing Office has established a purchase agreement for the purchase of jet “A” fuel with Arrow Energy, Inc.

Emergency Designation: Emergency legislation is requested for this ordinance due to the high price of fuel, which is causing the fleet to go through the fuel budget at a faster rate and they currently need fuel to continue flying.
