In the matter of the BOCC authorizing Klamath County Community Corrections to issue an ITB for Project Homefront’s roof project. Aaron Hartman, Community Corrections.
On November 18, 2020, Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) accepted Grant Agreement No. 107-102320 from the State of Oregon via the Department of Administrative Services. Pursuant to the Oregon Legislative Emergency Board’s (“E-Board”) Certificate dated October 23, 2020 (the “Authorization”), the E-Board allocated $30,000,000 from the Emergency Fund established by section 1, chapter 644, Oregon Laws 2019 for a grant to Oregon Community Foundation to support shelter through grants to local organizations for the acquisition, retrofitting, and potential operation of hotel and motel properties in wildfire-affected areas. Local organizations include counties, cities, Tribes, housing authorities and nonprofits. “Wildfire-affected areas” include Clackamas, Douglas, Klamath, Jackson, Lane, Linn, Lincoln and Marion Counties and tribal communities impacted by wildfires.
Klamath County applied for and has been awarded the grant in order to purchase Oregon Motel 8 under the grant name, Project Homefront. A portion of the grant award is subject to a hold back in order to fund repairs necessary to prepare the property for occupancy. All repairs must be completed and all grant holdback amounts fully distributed by June 15th, 2021. Any grant holdback amount remaining at June 15th, 2021 will be forfeited.
This ITB is for roof repairs recommended by the OCF’s property inspection report.
To be determined.
