Police Civilian Oversight Board Equitable Hiring Tool Taskforce: Details
The proposed resolution authorizes the acceptance of a $20,000 grant from the National League of Cities, and amends the City Clerk's Office 2021 Adopted Operating Budget. The amendment increases the Clerk's Office purchased services budget by $20,000 to support payments to local partners conducting an equity analysis on how to deepen non-partisan census education and civic engagement with historically undercounted groups.

The proposed resolution authorizes up to $10,000 for a façade improvement grant. This grant will be funded by the Economic Development Division's 2020 Façade Improvement Grants capital program, which will have approximately $53,000 of remaining budget authority following this grant. No additional City appropriation is required. The Façade Improvement Grant capital program was folded into EDD's Small Business Equity and Recovery capital program for the 2021 Adopted Capital Budget with the expectation that façade improvement grants will continue through this new program once the remaining budget authority from the 2020 Façade Improvement Grants capital program is disbursed.
4/5/21 FINANCE COMMITTEE RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT (15 VOTES REQUIRED) - REPORT OF OFFICER
4/12/21 PLAN COMMISSION RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
The proposed resolution amends the 2021 Capital Budget to add an additional $3.7 million in federal funding to the Satellite Bus Facility project. Total funding for the Satellite Bus Facility project will be $23,566,990 ($12,893,000 city general obligation borrowing and $10,673,990 federal funds).
Resolution # 64012 enacted March 3, 2021 authorized the purchase of land at 3901 & 3829 Hanson Road to serve as Metro Transit's satellite facility. While purchase of the property is funded through Metro's capital budget appropriations, no costs associated with operating the new facility were included in Metro's 2021 operating budget. Metro anticipates $300,000 in additional operating costs in 2021 associated with the new facility. These costs include:
· $105,000 in salary and benefit costs for two new Transit Utility Workers and a Transit Custodian. These additions result in a 3.0 FTE increase within Metro.
· $195,000 for utility costs
The proposed resolution amends Metro's 2021 operating budget to appropriate these additional operating costs and to create the 3.0 FTE positions. The resolution also appropriates $300,000 in federal funds from Metro's CARES act award to fund these costs. Costs anticipated in 2022 to operate the satellite facility will be included in Metro's 2022 budget request.
The proposed resolution amends the 2021 Adopted Capital Budget for Metro Transit to change funding sources for two capital projects.
Metro debt service has increased as the agency's capital program has expanded. This impacts the General Fund subsidy to Metro because it includes amounts to pay the agency's debt service. Because the general fund subsidy is considered within the limits of the state's Expenditure Restraint Program (ERP), the increased debt service puts stress on the City qualifying under ERP. One option to address the ERP issue is to fund Metro's capital budget from General Fund-supported borrowing and contribute the resulting asset to Metro.
The 2021 Adopted Capital budget included $10.8 million in Metro-supported general obligation borrowing for Metro's Facilities Repairs and Improvements program. This resolution changes the funding source to be General Fund-supported borrowing.
The proposed resolution also changes the funding source for Metro's Transit Technology System project to make use of federal rescue funds. Metro is expected to receive approximately $69 million in federal rescue funds. The 2021 Adopted Capital Budget appropriated $10 million in Metro-supported borrowing for the Transit Technology System project. This resolution replaces that borrowing with federal rescue funds.
The net result of these changes is a $10 million reduction in general obligation borrowing ($10.8 million increase in GF-supported borrowing and a $20.8 million decrease in non-GF borrowing).
The proposed resolution amends the CDA Redevelopment 2021 Adopted Capital Budget by creating a new Village on Park Redevelopment capital project and authorizing $3,000,000 in capital improvements. The $3,000,000 will be funded by TIF Proceeds from TID #42, which will be receiving a $3,000,000 transfer of incremental revenue from TID #39 pursuant to Legistar File ID 64795 and 64796. File 64795 amends TID #42's project plan to authorize this expense and additional projects at the Village on Park.
