Body

 WHEREAS, by Resolution 19759, dated March 5, 2018, the Legislature did authorize the execution of a Consulting Agreement with John Q.

WHEREAS, that Consulting Agreement provided the County with an option to contract with Ebert for additional services described in the Agreement as “Equalized Reappraisal Work,” at an additional cost to the County not to exceed $450,000.00; and,

 

WHEREAS, Ebert’s performance of such Equalized Reappraisal Work will improve the assessment process within the County and facilitate fair and accurate real property assessments; and,

 

WHEREAS, the cost of the Equalized Reappraisal Work has not been budgeted, but several local taxing jurisdictions have thus far committed to contribute a total of $212,595.00 toward the cost of this work, and further contribution commitments are anticipated; and,

 

WHEREAS, the execution of appropriate Cooperative Agreements with these jurisdictions is necessary in order to accept these funds; and,

 

WHEREAS, the balance of the cost for this work will need to be funded by the County; and,

 

 

WHEREAS, by Ordinance 5062, dated December 6, 2017, the Legislature did establish certain Reserve Accounts for certain budget lines within the 2018 County budget; and,
