An ordinance repealing section 206.01 of the codified ordinances and enacting a new section

ORDINANCE NO. 2015-33, Village of Yellow Springs, Ohio

Interested persons will take note that the Village Council of Yellow Springs on Monday, Dec. 7, 2015, gave first reading to an ordinance, text to follow.

Council will consider said ordinance for a second reading and a public hearing to begin at 7 p.m., Monday, Dec. 21, 2015, in the Bryan Community Center, 100 Dayton St.

Whereas, Codified Ordinance Section 206.01 of the Village of Yellow Springs, Ohio empowers the Village Manager to act as the Purchasing Agent with contracting authority for the Village and  Village Council must approve any contracts greater than $15,000 by ordinance or resolution; and

Whereas, Ohio Revised Code Section 735.05 permits municipalities to authorize designated individuals to contract for supplies, material, equipment and labor in an amount up to $50,000 on behalf of the municipality; and

Whereas, the Village Council has determined that increasing the Village Manager’s authority as the Purchasing Agent to make contracts on behalf of the Village in the amount of $30,000 or less without the requirement that Council approve the contract by ordinance or resolution will improve the efficiency of Village operations and is therefore in the best interest of the Village.

NOW, THEREFORE, THE COUNCIL OF THE VILLAGE OF YELLOW SPRINGS, OHIO HEREBY ORDAINS THAT:

Section 1. That Section 206.01 entitled “Purchasing” of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Yellow Springs, Ohio be repealed.

Section 2. That a new Section 206.01 entitled “Purchasing” of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Yellow Springs, Ohio be enacted to read as set forth on Exhibit A with new language in bold and deleted language in strikethrough, which is attached hereto and incorporated herein.

Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect and be in full force at the earliest date permitted by law.

Karen Wintrow, President
