Agenda Item # 1

Columbus Consolidated Government
Council Meeting

01/08/2019

Agenda Report # 77


TO: Mayor and Council

SUBJECT: 2018 Service Delivery Strategy Renewal

INITIATED BY: Planning Department


Recommendation: Approval is requested to submit the update of the Service Delivery Strategy for the Columbus Consolidated Government to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

Background: The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) requires that a plan of cooperation for certain services between municipalities and the county government, be developed for every county. This is done to insure that there is no overlapping or duplication of services between these governments. In 1998, this strategy was developed for Muscogee County, which at that time included Bibb City. The 2008 submission was the first that excluded Bibb City as a separate government in Muscogee County. Since 2002, the Columbus Consolidated Government is the only government in Muscogee County. With the submission of the update to the community's comprehensive plan, we are now obligated to update this strategy.

Analysis: Even though we are a consolidated government and have no other local governments in the county, the Columbus Consolidated Government is still required to file an update for this serviced delivery strategy.

Financial Considerations: There are no financial considerations or impacts from this action.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: N/A

Legal Considerations: The submission of these updates will meet a DCA requirement that requires this action when a new or updated comprehensive plan is submitted.

Recommendations/Actions: Approve the resolution authorizing the City Manager to submit the update of the Service Delivery Strategy for the Columbus Consolidated Government.
