Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution establishes a state of emergency at Reindahl Park to authorize preparing a temporary campground at Dairy Drive, allowing City staff to start work on the site so it can be licensed and zoned for occupancy by the fall and authorizing the Finance Director, or designee, and department/division heads to make emergency purchases of goods and services and for the Finance Director/designee to sign contracts, subject to budget authority. Any emergency service contract totaling $50,000 or more will be promptly reported to the Common Council. Activities for development and operation of the proposed site at Dairy Drive will potentially include preparing the site to function as a campground, building or purchasing temporary shelter structures, executing public works contract(s) if needed for paving and fencing or other infrastructure needs, and contracting with a local social service provider to provide onsite management and operational support to the site once it is occupied. Funding for these activities is included in the $2 million of ARPA funding for unsheltered homeless support allocated through adopted RES-21-00487 (File ID 65935) in July 2021. No additional City appropriation is required with the proposed resolution.
