WHEREAS, the UGA Muscogee County Extension has operated the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHVP) since 2011 under grants provided by the Governor’s Office of Children and Families; and,

WHEREAS, DFCS has contracted with the University of Georgia for the operation of the MIECHV program as of October 1, 2014, and therefore the Columbus Consolidated Government is no longer the fiscal agent for the Muscogee MIECHV and thus resolutions 258-14 and 259-14 are no longer needed and can be rescinded; and,
WHEREAS, per the terms of this contract, the Columbus Consolidated Government will be responsible for and for all MIECHVP expenditures incurred and to be incurred until May 30, at which time the University of Georgia will assume all responsibilities for the expenditures of the program; and,
WHEREAS, the University of Georgia will reimburse the Columbus Consolidated Government for any expenditures not previously reimbursed incurring between October 1, 2014 and May 30, 2015, with a maximum expected of $50,000.
NOW, THEREFORE, THE COUNCIL OF COLUMBUS, GEORGIA, HEREBY RESOLVES AS FOLLOWS:
That the City Manager is hereby authorized to enter into contract with the University of Georgia for the continuation of the MIECHV program from October 1, 2014 through May 30, 2015, with no local match required, and to amend the Multi-Governmental Fund by the contacted amount of $50,000 or as otherwise amended, and to rescind resolutions 258-14 and 259-14.
