Fiscal Note

The proposed resolution authorizes the use of City property by those experiencing unsheltered homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic subject to certain conditions outlined in the resolution. The Parks Division is in the process of determining the requirements to accommodate this use of City property. At this point, the Division estimates costs of approximately $15,000 in staff time (2 hours of labor per week) and approximately $50,000 in purchased services (to rent portable toilets and handwashing stations that are serviced daily). The Division has available funding to cover these costs in the short term. The status of the budget will be reviewed for the 2nd quarter projection and an appropriation may be necessary at that time.
