9. B. 1.
Consent for Local Road Agreements with Athens, Convis, Eckford, Fredonia, Marengo, Marshall, Pennfield Townships
Kristine Parsons, Engineering Director, Road Department
Resolved that the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners does hereby accept the signed agreements for Athens, Convis, Eckford, Fredonia, Marengo, Marshall, and Pennfield Townships for their 2021 local road improvements. (List attached)
It is the recommendation of the Road Department to accept the following local road agreements (see attached list) for the projects that the above mentioned townships have contracted to be performed in the Fiscal Year 2021.
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 (match percentage varies based on type of improvement) of the actual cost, provided that sufficient funds are available for local road improvement projects. Per these agreements, the townships agree to match their agreed upon percentage of the actual project costs and to advance TWENTY-FIVE (25%) of the township's match prior to the beginning of construction. Calhoun County implements this program through the Calhoun County Road Department.
A line item amount for Local road agreement expenditures and the corresponding revenues is included in the approved 2021 Road Department budget. Any costs in excess of already budgeted funds ($725,000) will be adjusted for with the mid-year budget adjustment.
