WHEREAS, the Council of the Village of Antwerp, Ohio, adopted a Resolution Establishing a Department of Purchase, Construction, and Repair, said Resolution designated as No. 98-02 and becoming effective on May 11, 1998; and

WHEREAS, the Council, by way of Resolution No. 98-02, designated the Village Administrator as the appointed official responsible for the Department of Purchase, Construction, and Repair and designated as the purchasing agent for the Village of Antwerp; and

WHEREAS, the Village Administrator at the beginning of the term in 2006 resigned her position, and in an effort to maintain the Department of Purchase, Construction, and Repair until a replacement Village Administrator could be appointed, Council amended Resolution No. 98-02 to appoint the Mayor as the officer responsible for this Department and as the purchasing agent for the Village, said action taken by Resolution No. 2006-01 passed as an emergency measure on March 20, 2006.

WHEREAS, the Village Administrator position was thereafter filled and the Council re-appointed the Village Administrator as the officer responsible for the Department of Purchase, Construction, and Repair and the Village Administrator shall be the officer designated as the purchasing agent for the Village of Antwerp.  Said appointment was effective as of April 10, 2006.

WHEREAS, the Ohio Revised Code § 734.141 was thereafter amended increasing the dollar amount by which the Village Administrator has authority to make contracts, purchase supplies and materials, and provide labor for any work under the administrator’s supervision.  The Council desires to amend Resolution No. 2006-01 and Resolution No. 2009-03 to clarify that the Village Administrator has all authority as a central purchasing agent as set forth in Ohio Revised Code § 734.141, as may be amended from time to time.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the Village of Antwerp, State of Ohio:

Section 1.  Resolution No. 2006-01 (originally Resolution No. 98-02) and Resolution No. 2009-03 of the Village of Antwerp, Ohio, are amended to read as follows:

The Council of the Village of Antwerp finds that it would be advantageous for the Village to establish a department of purchase, construction and repair and this department shall be under the direction of the Village Administrator of the Village of Antwerp who shall purchase all materials, supplies, tools, machinery, and equipment in each of the municipal departments whether they are established by law or ordinance.

Now therefore, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Village Administrator of the Village of Antwerp is hereby made the purchasing agent for the Village and is authorized to purchase all materials, supplies, tools, machinery, and equipment and shall supervise all construction, alterations, and repairs in each of the municipal departments whether they are established by law or ordinance and any ordinance, or portion thereof, establishing any other person or officer as purchasing agent is hereby repealed and shall be ineffective.

Section 2.  Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code § 731.141, the Village Administrator has the authority to make contracts, purchase supplies and materials, and provide labor for any work under the administrator’s supervision according to the procedure set forth in Ohio Revised Code § 731.141.  The Council provides for central purchasing for all offices, departments, divisions, boards, and commissions of the Village of Antwerp, under the direction of the Village Administrator, who shall make contracts, purchase supplies or materials, and provide labor for any work of the Village of Antwerp in the manner provided in Ohio Revised Code § 731.141.

Section 3.  It is found and determined that all formal actions of the Council concerning and relating to the passage of this Resolution were adopted in an open meeting of the Council, and that all deliberations of the Council and any of its committees that resulted in such formal actions, were in meetings open to the public, in compliance with all legal requirements including all lawful Ordinances and any applicable provisions of Section 121.22 of the Ohio Revised Code.

Section 4.  This Resolution is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health, safety and welfare of the Village and for the further reason it is necessary for the Village Administrator to have the authority granted herein retroactive to April 10, 2006, and/or the effective date of the amendments to Ohio Revised Code § 731.141 increasing the dollar authorization amount, and this Resolution shall be in full force and effect immediately after its passage; otherwise, it shall take effect and be in force after the earliest period allowed by law.
