Resolution to Implement and Adopt a Local Pavement Warranty Program
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 approve the Resolution to Adopt and Implement a Local Pavement Warranty Program required by the Michigan Legislature (MCL 247.662, 247.663).  
RECOMMENDATION:
The Michigan Legislature created a requirement that each local road agency in Michigan adopt a Local Road Pavement Warranty Program acceptable to Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). 
BACKGROUND:
The Program was developed over the last 30 months by the Local Agency Pavement Warranty Task Force including representatives of the County Road Association, Michigan Municipal League, MDOT, Federal Highway Administration-Michigan, Michigan's Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) and municipal road agencies, and legal counsels.  The Program includes input from industry representatives to assure that the contractors' perspectives were considered.  
ALTERNATIVES:
This Warranty Program must be adopted by every county road agency, and every agency must consider a warranty on each project utilizing any state or federal funding that also includes $2 million or more in paving-related components.  Agencies must annually report on projects with $2 million or more in paving-related items, regardless of whether they implemented a warranty or not. 
SUMMARY:
The overall goal of the Michigan Local Pavement Warranty Program is to have one standardized method for applying pavement warranties on local agency projects, which provides a consistent, quantifiable and transparent program that pavement contractors can recognize and implement.  This Program was developed for use by rural, mid-size, urban and large urban road agencies.
