Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution adopts the State Street Mall Capitol Concourse 2020/21 schedule of special charges for maintenance service. These charges are assessed to support the additional level of services provided to this high-traffic area, including operation of water fountains, maintenance of flower planters, and frequent trash and snow removal. This charge does not cover any expenses related to emergency public services, such as those services provided during the protests in the summer of 2020. The City and property owners share the cost of the State Street Mall/Capitol Concourse Maintenance service 50/50.

Total expenditures for the 2020/21 service period were $1,381,026. The City portion for these services is $690,513, and the remaining $690,513 is chargeable to the property owners. While this is an increase of 24% over the prior year, 2019/20 was calculated for a 9-month billing period. The average monthly cost of $57,543 for 2020/21 is comparable to the 2019/20 average monthly cost of $58,141. Payments are budgeted in the 2021 Parks Division Adopted Operating Budget.
