Local Road Infrastructure Failure Policy
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 and approve the Local Road Infrastructure Failure Policy.
RECOMMENDATION:
In order to provide a road system that is reasonably safe and convenient for the public to travel, while also allowing the Road Department the ability to provide cost effective and efficient maintenance, it is the recommendation of the Road Department that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners support and approve the presented Local Road Infrastructure Failure Policy.
BACKGROUND:
This policy applies to local roads that are deemed a complete failure by the Road Department.  This policy will be implemented after evaluation of a specific roadway.  After this initial evaluation, the Road Department will meet with Township officials to further discuss improvement options.  If no plans for road improvements are implemented within 3 months of the initial meeting with Township officials, CCRD will initiate action to return the failed roadway to gravel.  Safety concerns, PASER ratings, and maintenance costs will all be factored into the decision making process for each roadway under consideration.
ALTERNATIVES:
The Board could choose not to support and approve the Local Road Infrastructure Failure Policy and CCRD would continue to patch failed roadways.

Fiscal Impact
BUDGETARY IMPACT:
Should the townships not agree to road improvements within 3 months of the initial meeting regarding the specific roadway(s) discussed, CCRD will fund 100% of the pulverizing costs from the annual state allocated funds for local roads. These projects will be sent out to bid and awarded to the most cost efficient and reputable company.
