FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Doug Buehler, Finance Department, Terry Casey, Human Resources and Jim Freed General services testified on this ordinance. The condition of the space on the 10th and 12th floor is not reflective of the professionalism of the Human Resources Department. General Services Department has allocated some funds to make improvements to the space by providing carpet and paint, but the outdated furniture system is deteriorated and will become an issue when replacing the carpet. The current space is lacking meeting areas, break rooms and technology, and the current layout is inefficient to the daily business among HR associates, other City employees and visitors. The 10th and 12th floor needs a new furniture system to be conducive and configured to support the different divisions working within the Department. This project will improve space relationships, provide ergonomic furniture systems, help ADA compliant circulation paths, invigorate associates moral, and expose the Department's professional image to new employees coming to work with the City, and visiting citizens.

This ordinance requests authorization to finance the Project with one upon the Master Lease Purchase Agreement between the City and Bank of America Public Capital Corporation ("BAPCC") to acquire City Fleet Vehicles and Equipment in an amount not to exceed $10,066,745. The lease term is expected to not exceed more than an eight (8) year period. The Project proposes to replace approximately 93 units in Parks and Recreation, 28 of which are for snow removal. And 26 units in Public Works. The groups targeted for replacement are the vehicles in the most inferior shape, incurring the most repair expense or no longer a fit for the current work load. The Project will improve the productivity and efficiency of the operating Departments and reduce their operating overheads due to i fewer repairs and less equipment downtime. The equipment targeted is heavily used, well past design lifecycle, mismatched to the current need, and prone to breakage.
