Body

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

In conjunction with the City of Toledo's acquisition of federal and state funding sources for infrastructure improvements, the city also works with and through the TMACOG.  The city's 2019 transportation assessment fee to TMACOG for their services is $51,571.  Funds have been budgeted and are available in the 2019 Division of Engineering Services’ operating budget to provide for this payment.  

 

The Stormwater Coalition is made up of governments, universities, and non-government groups that contribute annual membership dues to TMACOG.  The city’s 2019 dues are $12,058. TMACOG sponsors a yearly educational sampling program for Toledo Area High School students known as the Student Watershed Watch. This funding is used for test kits and student presentation expenses. The city’s 2019 contribution to this program is $9,950.  Clear Choices, Clean Water is a water quality educational program for the Greater Toledo Area. This education campaign provides the citizens of northwest Ohio with the information they need to know to take action protecting local waterways. Clear Choices Clean Water helps to fulfill the public involvement, participation, and education requirements that Ohio EPA requires of City of Toledo and other regulated stormwater communities. The city’s cost for this 2-year license agreement is $6,498.  Funds for these dues and programs have been budgeted and are available in the 2019 Division of Environmental Services’ operating budget to provide for these payments. 

 

Lastly, this ordinance authorizes payment of the city’s 2019 general purpose government membership fee from the General Fund.  Funds have been budgeted and are available in the 2019 General/Non-Departmental operating budget to provide for this payment.
