Should the Council authorize signature of an Intergovernmental Agreement with the County of Jackson for "Intergovernmental Cooperation" to provide building inspection services?
Authorize the signature of a contract(Intergovernmental Agreement) entitled "INTERGOVERNMENTAL COOPERATION" with the County of Jackson, Board of Commissioners and the City of Ashland.
Since the mid 90's, the City of Ashland and Jackson County have made certified inspectors available on dates requested by the other party to perform building inspections. This activity was previously agreed upon under Intergovernmental Agreements dated May 10, 2001.
This agreement is anticipated to augment efforts made to provide new revenue streams in the next fiscal year. Currently the city has agreements in effect with other authorities having jurisdiction including The City of Medford and Oregon Building Codes Division (#90G00091). Those agreements have produced revenue (to date) which totals more than half the required FTE reduction goal set in place at mid year. Both the City of Medford and the Jackson County Jurisdiction anticipate use of our staff to support their programs (reduced by attrition) in the coming year. Work under the multiple IGA's in the coming year is projected at the same level as the activity in current cycle ($28,000.) This activity will not detract services levels for the customers of the City of Ashland Building Division. Should local activity increase, inspectors would return to normal work weeks (FTE reduction work schedules are currently in effect) to maintain services consistent with the demand.
