Letter in Support of 29 1/2 Mile Rd culvert replacement grant application
Submitted For: Kelli Scott
FROM: Kristine Parsons, Engineering Director, Road Department
Department: Road Department  

Information
RESOLUTION:
Resolved that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners does hereby support the proposed replacement of the existing culverts on 29 1/2 Mile Rd. over the South Branch of the Kalamazoo River in Albion Township between Division Drive and B Drive S and authorizes the Road Department to seek funding assistance for the replacement of said structures through the State of Michigan Fisheries Habitat Grant Program. 
 
RECOMMENDATION:
It is the recommendation of the Road Department that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners approve the resolution supporting the replacement of these structures if the grant funding is awarded.
 
BACKGROUND:
The Calhoun County Road Department was approached by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources about applying for a grant under the Fisheries Habitat Grant Program since this site was listed on their priority projects list.  A pre-proposal was submitted in August 2019 and the 29 1/2 Mile Rd. culvert replacement project was subsequently identified as a strong candidate for funding and selected as one of the projects to be moved forward in the application process.
ALTERNATIVES:
The Board of Commissioners could choose not to support this resolution. This would result in the Road Department's inability to submit the application as the resolution is a required part of the grant application.

Fiscal Impact
BUDGETARY IMPACT:
Under this application, we are requesting $600,000 in grant funding and intend to utilize $375,000 in Small Urban Funds, as well as providing $225,000 in local match, for a total of $1,200,000 and will be included in the 2021 budget.
