Agenda Item Summary:
This ordinance would make the following changes to the Life Safety Loan Program: • Additional funding could be committed as revenue allows. • The review committee is being deleted in favor of review by staff (Fire, Finance, Attorney). All complete applications are forwarded to Council. • The ability to secure the loan with a mortgage is being removed, as no loans have utilized this option. Additionally, staff doesn’t feel comfortable in credit decisions for 2nd mortgage. • The available term is being extended from 7 years to 10 years, with language adding that the term should be appropriate for the size of the loan. • Required loan agreement is included in the ordinance. • Factors to be considered by Council for loan approval added. • Reimbursement language clarified (loan funds only disbursed to reimburse borrower). • Standalone fund report deleted, as it is redundant to audit & annual financial reports already given by Finance Officer.

Funding Source & Fiscal Impact (if applicable):

This ordinance change would allow additional funding to be added to the program, but would not require such additional funding.
