Reducing and appropriating $23,900.72 in the ARRA Stimulus Fund; designating requisition authority; and recognizing an emergency.


WHEREAS, pursuant to Ordinance No. 090746, the City Council appropriated revenues to various accounts in support of programs approved by the U.S. Department of Energy pursuant to Formula Grant No. DE-0000758; and


WHEREAS, pursuant to Ordinance No. 120516, the City Council authorized re-allocation of funds from 13-2530-898821-B-G89EECST to begin replacing older lighting in City Hall with energy efficient LED lights and fixtures; and


WHEREAS, certain lighting upgrades to City Hall will achieve additional energy savings of approximately 0.16 million kWh with resultant additional savings of approximately $8,000.00 over the expected 50,000 hours of life of the light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs as compared to the lighting currently in use, as well as to save maintenance time and costs due to the extended life of the replacement LED light bulbs; and


WHEREAS, reprogramming of certain grant funds provides an opportunity to both achieve significant energy savings and meet the requirements of the City’s Formula Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant; NOW, THEREFORE,




Section 1. That the appropriation in the following account of the ARRA Stimulus Fund is hereby reduced by the following amount:


13-2530-645055-B-G64EECST Energy Efficiency Conservation $23,900.72


Section 2. That the sum of $23,900.72 is hereby appropriated from the Unappropriated Fund balance of the ARRA Stimulus Fund to the following account in the ARRA Stimulus Fund:

Section 3. That the Director of General Services is designated as requisitioning authority for Account No. 13-2530-075055-B-GO07EECST.


Section 4. That the Director of General Services is hereby authorized to expend up to $23,900.72 from funds appropriated, together with other previously appropriated funds, all for energy efficiency upgrades at City Hall, specifically, by replacing halogen, old fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs and fixtures in common, public, and stairwell areas with energy efficient LED light bulbs and fixtures.


Section 5. That this ordinance is recognized as an emergency measure within the provisions of Section 503 of the City Charter in that it appropriates money, and shall take effect in accordance with that section.




I hereby certify that there is a balance, otherwise unencumbered, to the credit of the appropriation to which the foregoing expenditure is to be charged, and a cash balance, otherwise unencumbered, in the treasury, to the credit of the fund from which payment is to be made, each sufficient to meet the obligation hereby incurred.
