Year-to-Date Budget Rebecca Crawford, (919) 245-2152 <br /> Summary Gary Donaldson, (919) 245-2453 <br /> PURPOSE: To approve a budget amendment for Fiscal Year 2021-22. <br /> BACKGROUND: <br /> Rogers Road Community Center Remediation <br /> 1. In December 2021, air quality testing was performed within the Rogers Road Community <br /> Center Building due to visible growth found during a building assessment. Staff <br /> immediately contacted Environmental Air Quality professionals to perform surface and air <br /> quality testing. The initial testing reflected toxigenic fungal growth within the main corridor <br /> and loaded counts of allergenic fungal growth within the air samples. The building was <br /> immediately closed and contained to avoid the health hazards associated with the fungal <br /> growth. Additional air quality testing and building assessment work will be completed to <br /> determine the source of the organic growth. <br /> The largest concerns from the findings were the visible microbial growth observed on most <br /> of the contents throughout the building, on most of the walls, ceilings and supply registers <br /> throughout the building, and the particle courts were very elevated in most areas of the <br /> building that were tested. The elevated airborne particles have been proven to reduce <br /> energy and productivity in occupants, and can transport chemicals, odors and bacteria <br /> which may allow for odor issues or adverse health effects for sensitive or <br /> immunocompromised individuals. This budget amendment redirects $199,519 of the <br /> $407,543 in General Fund Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Backstop set <br /> aside in Budget Amendment #5-A to complete this remediation since the County has <br /> started receiving reimbursement for the COVID response. This amends the following <br /> capital projects in the County Capital Fund: <br />
