202101223 12.MotionMOTION, submitted by Councilmember Goodin, In 1911, a 6.4 acre property was purchased by the City of Cincinnati to establish a park in the suburb of Evanston. As the neighborhood grew, a pool, tennis and basketball courts, a baseball diamond and bleachers were added to Evanston Park, making it a fun-filled gathering place for the generations of families who lived in the area. In 1917, the Evanston Field House was built, which contained boys/girls restrooms and locker rooms, lifeguard quarters and an equipment room, and was also used for picnics and parties. Evanston Park is part of the Cincinnati Recreation Commission and, unfortunately, over the past 20 years, the Field House has fallen into disrepair. It is estimated a complete renovation of the Field House would cost between $275,000-$396,000. WE MOVE that funds from the American Rescue Plan Act be allocated to pay for renovation of the Evanston Field House.Referred to Budget & Finance Committee  Action details Not available

WE MOVE that the City administration prepare a Fiscal Year 2022 Recommended General Fund Operating Budget which respects the following policy guidelines and priorities: 1. The Fiscal Year 2022 General Fund Operating Budget must be balanced. While continuing to strive to have a structurally balanced budget, the fiscal impacts of the pandemic may necessitate the use of one-time sources to balance in Fiscal Year 2022. 2. Given the projected $30.0 million gap between General Fund revenues and expenditures, federal stimulus funds should be used to offset the projected FY 2022 operating budget deficit based on the eligible uses of funds for pandemic related expenditures and/or loss of revenue.
