Title
An Ordinance to Amend Sections 1:326, 1:328, and 1:333 of Chapter 15, Emergency and Disaster Management, of Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Ordinance No. ORD-16-10)
Memorandum
Section 5.1(b)(1) of the Ann Arbor City Charter provides it is the duty of the City Administrator to direct, supervise and coordinate the work of the administrative departments as designated by City Council. City Council, by enactment of Chapter 15 of the Ann Arbor City Code, established the Office of Emergency Management. At the time of enactment, the Office of Emergency Management was assigned as a component unit of the Police Department within the Safety Services Area.

Under the provisions of City Council Resolution R 191-5-04 the City Administrator may, at his discretion, reorganize and reassign the services and functions assigned to and within each Service Area under the direction of the City Administrator. For administrative function and services provided by the City internally, or partnered with other communities and regional and State agencies externally, it is recommended that the Office of Emergency Management remain within the Safety Services Service Area but be assigned at the discretion of the City Administrator for administrative purposes to either the Police or Fire Department.

The attached Ordinance amendments
* Delete the reference to the Office of Emergency Management being a component unit of the Police Department
* Add an additional appointment to the minimum required for line of succession consistent with best practices for emergency management
* Revise the appointment process language for consistency in the ordinance
* Revise the surplus property acceptance language for consistency in the ordinance.
The proposed amendments have been reviewed with the Chiefs of Police and Fire.
