Local Road Agreements
Kristine Parsons, Engineering Director, Road Department
Resolved that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners does hereby approve the signed agreements for Clarence, Eckford, Fredonia, Marengo, and Sheridan Townships for 2019 local road improvements.
It is the recommendation of the Road Department to approve the following local road agreements (see attached list) that outline which projects each participating township wants to complete and cost share in Fiscal Year 2019.
Calhoun County is authorized to use money distributed from the Michigan Transportation Fund to participate in Local Road Construction by Public Act 51 of 1951 (MCL 247.662 (15)), which states, "Michigan Transportation Funds may be expended for construction purposes on Local Roads only to the extent matched money from other sources..." Calhoun County Policy 509 provides for a County match in the amount of THIRTY PERCENT (30%) of the actual cost, provided that sufficient funds are available for local road improvement projects. Per these agreements, the townships agree to match in the amount of SEVENTY PERCENT (70%) of actual cost and to advance TWENTY-FIVE (25%) of the township's match prior to the beginning of construction. CCRD requires that the townships establish a contingency (approximately 10% of total estimated construction costs) for unanticipated project costs. Calhoun County implements this program through the Calhoun County Road Department.
The Board could choose not to approve the Local Road Agreements, which would result in the cancellation of the listed projects for the 2019 Fiscal Year.
The total CCRD cost of the proposed local road improvements is included in the 2019 BOC approved budget.
