Title
Authorizing the Mayor to enter into a contract extension for banking services for the six-month period of April 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019; authorizing the expenditures for banking services; and declaring an emergency.

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
Toledo Municipal Code Section 192.17 sets forth the procedures for designating a Central Depository and a Secondary Custodian for banking and custodial services. The city's current banking services contract was set to expire on December 31, 2018 and was extended by Ordinance 517-18 till March 31, 2019.
