Fiscal Note

In March the Common Council adopted Resolution 41819 authorizing City staff to issue RFPs for pre-construction work associated with the Public Market. The anticipated 2016 cost associated with the preconstruction work is $275,000, funded through a UDAG payment previously made to the City.

 

This resolution authorizes one portion of contracts resulting from the previously authorized RFP. These contracts are for two firms to assist City staff in securing outside funding (tax credits, grants, etc) for the construction of the Public Market. The 2016 Adopted CIP anticipates construction of the Public Market will take place in 2017 and 2018; the budget assumes the project will be funded jointly through GO Borrowing and outside sources.
