By repealing and reordaining, with amendments

Article 5 - Finance, Property, and Procurement

Section 9-6

Baltimore City Code

(Edition 2000)

 

Section 1.  Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, That, after conducting a public hearing and having heard testimonial evidence, the City Council finds that:

 

(i)                     in order to yield the best possible results for Baltimore’s youth programs and services, the interim fiscal agent has exercised due diligence and deliberate caution in establishing the permanent intermediary required by City Code Article 5, § 9-4(b)(3);

 

(ii)  as a result of this demonstrated diligence and caution, the permanent intermediary is not yet prepared to administer the Children and Youth Fund established by City Charter Article I, § 13; and

 

(iii)  it is thus appropriate and necessary to extend, by authority of City Code Article 5, § 9-6, the Fund’s interim structure for 1 additional year.

 

 

 

Section 2.  And be it further ordained, That the Laws of Baltimore City read as follows:

 

                     Baltimore City Code

 

                     Article 5.  Finance, Property, and Procurement

 

                     Subtitle 9. Children and Youth Fund

 

§ 9-4. Interim fiscal agent.

 

(b)  General powers and duties.

 

The interim fiscal agent must:

 

(1)                     identify specific programs and services to be funded by the Fund;

 

(2)                     allocate the available funds among the programs and services identified for funding; and

 

(3)                     establish a permanent intermediary, with a focus on youth leadership and governance, capable of dispersing the money appropriated to the Fund to specific youth-focused programs and services.

 

§ 9-6.  Automatic termination.

 

This subtitle automatically expires on July 1, [2019] 2020, unless the City Council, after conducting a public hearing and hearing testimonial evidence, finds that the permanent intermediary required by § 9-4(b)(3) of this subtitle is not yet prepared to administer the Fund, in which case this subtitle may be extended for 1 additional year.

 

Section 3.  And be it further ordained, That the catchlines contained in this Ordinance are not law and may not be considered to have been enacted as a part of this or any prior Ordinance.

 

Section 4.  And be it further ordained, That this Ordinance takes effect when it is enacted.
