FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Tammy Queen testified on this ordinance. In March 2016, city council passed Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 160125 which authorized the renovation and lease of a State owned facility at 2600 E. 12th Street, now known as the Kansas City Assessment Triage Center ("KC-ATA") for the purpose of providing the community with an alternative, safe resource for triage. stabilization and referral for persons presenting a psychiatric or substance abuse-induced crisis ("Program"). The KC-ATA modified existing space to provide for evaluation space, waiting areas, offices, restrooms, showers, eating areas and patient rooms for the evaluation periods up to 23 hours. The evaluation is conducted by health specialists to determine steps for patients to get the help that they need. The patient related operational expenses are paid through a settlement agreement between the Office of the Missouri Attorney General and Ascension Health, a Missouri non-profit corporation, but the City pays for the property management costs. The original Property Management Contract with an effective date of April 19, 2016 between the City and HOMKOR ("Contract") was authorized as a sole source contract. Ordinance No. 160125 specified that any agreement for property maintenance services entered into to be effective May 1, 2018 or thereafter, should be pursued in an open and competitive bidding process for such terms and conditions then considered to be reasonable. Additional time is needed by General Services to adequately complete that contemplated competitive bidding process. The Second Amendment authorizes an eight month temporary extension though December 31, 2018 to complete the bidding process to enable continuity into he Program at the KC-ATA. Recognizing additional time needed to bid for services, a Third Amendment was requested and granted through April 30, 2019. A Fourth Amendment is requested through April 30, 2021 to avoid interruption of service during the current COVID-19 pandemic while completing the bidding process.
