Title

Authorizing the appropriation and expenditure of an amount not to exceed $2,800,000 from the Capital Improvement Fund for the Matches & Planning Program; authorizing the mayor to prepare plans and specifications, acquire required rights-of-way as appropriate, accept bids and enter into contracts for various roadway and transportation matches and planning projects within the Division of Engineering Services; and declaring an emergency.

 

Body

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

The Division of Engineering Services is requesting authority to appropriate and expend an amount not to exceed $2,800,000 from the Capital Improvement Fund for the Matches & Planning program.  The Matches and Planning Program is included in the proposed 2022-2026 Capital Improvement Program and Road Improvement Fund Budget This money will be used to provide City match dollars to state and federal grants and loans. 

 

The Matches & Planning program provides funding that is needed to supply match funds for outside grants and loans the division has anticipated and secured, as well as to plan for future larger scale projects. These CIP funds will match federal and state transportation funds already approved through multiple sources.

 

Authorization to appropriate and expend these critical funds now will allow for timely bidding and construction to ensure all projects are completed this year in a balanced, efficient fashion.  It also allows for the processing of agreements needed to accept the outside grant and loan dollars before funding agency deadlines.

 

Summary

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

 

SECTION 1. That the appropriation of $2,800,000 is authorized for appropriation in the Capital Improvement Fund to Account Code 5040-35000-8CB2204STREET and the expenditure of same is authorized for the Roadway Matches and Planning Program.

 

SECTION 2. That the mayor is authorized to prepare plans and specifications, accept bids and enter into contracts necessary to complete various roadway and transportation improvements including such items as labor, materials, construction testing, and professional services for property appraisals, title work, negotiations, acquisition, and environmental contamination studies that are necessary to acquire additional rights-of-way as required.  Contracts shall contain such terms and conditions as the mayor may deem requisite and proper and shall be subject to approval by the Director of Law.

 

SECTION 3. That the Director of Finance is authorized to issue warrant or warrants against the account code listed in Section 1 above in an amount not to exceed $2,800,000 in payment of the above authorized obligations upon presentation of the proper voucher or vouchers.

 

SECTION 4. That the disappropriation of any remaining budget to fund balance is authorized at project closeout.

 

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 this Ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety, and property and for the further reason that this Ordinance must be immediately effective in order to facilitate this work beginning early this year to meet completion deadlines.
