Emergency Ordinance

*Authorize Intergovernmental Agreement with the State of Oregon on behalf of Portland State University for use of parking permits and access cards at the 4th Ave Garage

Passed

The City of Portland ordains:

Section 1.  The Council finds:

  1. The Bureau of Development Services (BDS), Bureau of Environmental Services (BES), Bureau of Technology Services (BTS), Fire & Rescue (FIRE), Bureau of Parks and Recreating (PARKS), Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and the Portland Water Bureau (PWB), collectively, COP, has a need for parking spaces and access cards at the 4th Avenue Garage. COP staff’s City assigned vehicles have a need to park in the garage. BES and PBOT also utilize personal vehicles in order to conduct field inspections.
     
  2. BDS inspection staff has parked in PSU's 4th Avenue Garage parking facility, which is adjacent to the Development Services Building, since BDS moved into the Development Services Building in 1999.  BES, BTS, FIRE, PARKS, PBOT, and PWB also found that they have a need to park City owned vehicles and personal vehicles (used for inspections) to conduct daily business activities, when necessary. The parking structure is the most convenient and efficient in terms of access and proximity to the Development Services Building.
     
  3. The Bureau of Development Services currently has an interagency agreement with BES, BTS, FIRE, PARKS, PBOT and PWB to handle and process all of the parking invoices and customer service issues with Portland State University Transportation and Parking Services.
     
  4. The costs of these parking permits fall within three tiers: 1. Non-Reserved parking permits are charged at a monthly rate of $205 per space, 2. Parking spaces reserved all hours are charged a monthly rate of $291/space, and 3. Parking spaces reserved after 3pm are charged a monthly rate of $252 per space.

    The monthly cost for non-reserved permits during FY2021-22 will increase by $10 over the FY2020-21 rate to $205 per permit. Reserved spaces, for electric charging stations, will increase by $12 per month over the FY2020-21 rate to $252 per space for 33 reserved after 1pm spaces, and by $21 per month over the FY2020-21 rate to $291 per space for 11 spaces reserved all hours.
     
  5. Funds for this IGA have been made available in the FY2021-22 budget.

NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:

  1. The Director of the Bureau of Development Services (Director) is hereby authorized to execute an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) in an amount not to exceed $650,000 with the State of Oregon, acting by and through the State Board of Higher Education, on behalf of Portland State University (PSU) in a form similar to the agreement attached as Exhibit A.
     
  2. The Director is authorized to execute amendments to the IGA identified in Section A above provided the amendments do not increase the City’s financial obligation under the IGA.
     
  3. The Mayor and the City Auditor are hereby authorized to make payments due under the IGA from the FY2021-22 Bureau of Development Services Budget, account 544000, various cost centers, when demand is presented and approved by the proper authorities.  The Mayor and the City Auditor may make payments due under the IGA for subsequent fiscal years if Council appropriates money in the Bureau of Development Services’ budget for payments under the IGA in subsequent fiscal years.

Section 2.  The Council declares that an emergency exists in order to prevent delays in timely payment to PSU; therefore, this ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage by Council.

An ordinance when passed by the Council shall be signed by the Auditor. It shall be carefully filed and preserved in the custody of the Auditor (City Charter Chapter 2 Article 1 Section 2-122)
