SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

The Lucas County Board of Commissioners, through the Lucas County Employee Benefits/Wellness Department, will provide City of Toledo employees with access to certain Lucas County Wellness Program Services and the Lucas County Employee Benefits/Wellness Department will provide assistance with implementation and ongoing administration of Wellness Program Services to the City.     

 

The City will reimburse the Lucas County Board of Commissioners $75,000 for the initial implementation and administration of the Wellness Program for the period January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019. 

 

Summary

NOW, THEREFORE, Be it ordained by the Council of the City of Toledo:

 

SECTION 1. That the mayor is authorized to enter into an agreement with the Lucas County Board of Commissioners to provide City of Toledo employees with access to certain Lucas County Wellness Program Services and assistance with implementation and administration of Wellness Program Services for the period January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019.  Such agreement shall contain terms and conditions deemed proper and requisite according to the Director of Law and Director of Human Resources.

 

SECTION 2.                     That an amount not to exceed $75,000 is authorized for expenditure from Account Code 1098-150320, for the initial implementation and administration of the Wellness Program for city employees.

SECTION 4.                      That this Council finds it in the best interest of the city to waive the competitive bidding requirements of TMC Chapter 187 for the reason that an intergovernmental agreement with the Lucas County Board of Commissioners allows collaboration between common public entities for public sector employers, generating significant cost avoidance specifically benefiting the City by allowing it to participate, on a trial basis, in an established employee wellness program.

 

SECTION 5. That this Ordinance is declared to be an emergency measure and shall be in force and effect from and after its passage. The reason for the emergency lies in the fact that same is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety and property, and for the further reason that the Ordinance must be immediately effective in order to improve the overall physical and emotional well-being of the City of Toledo’s employees and their dependents.
