agenda analysis

This resolution approves the annual interlocal agreement for services performed by Metro for the Emergency Communications District (ECD) relative to the operation of the Enhanced-911 service during Fiscal Year 2021. The contract specifies the services to be provided by the Metro Emergency Communications Center, the Department of Public Works, and the Department of General Services.

 

The Department of Public Works would maintain an updated Master Street Address Guide, and the Department of General Services would provide three fleet vehicles as well as the necessary associated vehicle maintenance. Metro would also agree to handle the procurement of goods and services upon request by the ECD. In addition, Metro would be responsible for training the Metro employees who would operate the system. Finally, Metro would agree to provide a facility to serve as a backup center for the primary Emergency Communications Center.

 

Fiscal Note: The ECD would reimburse the Metropolitan Government in the amount of $4,900 for the services provided by the Department of Public Works. This amount remains unchanged from reimbursements in FY2019. The ECD would also reimburse the Department of General Services for the use of the three (3) fleet vehicles, plus the expenses of certain training costs, rental costs for the backup facility, telephone expenses, and equipment costs.
