Agenda Item Brief:

Fleet services is seeking approval to enter into a cooperative agreement with the State of Nevada and to accept this CMAQ Grant from the Federal Highway Administration through the State of Nevada in the amount not to exceed $125,000.00 for the purchase of CMAQ approved equipment during the 2015 fiscal year.

 



Background:

1. The State of Nevada acting by and through its Department of Transportation and the Nevada Division of the Federal Highway Administration have entered into a Stewardship Agreement pursuant to Title 23 U.S.C. (United States Code) 106. N.R.S. 408.245 authorizes the State of Nevada to act as an agent and to accept federal funds on behalf of local public agencies. This agreement delegates authority to the City to purchase the CMAQ equipment outlined below.

The purpose of this grant is to purchase a cab and chassis for a hooklift truck that will be used to haul dumpsters for sweeper and other debris. There is a 5% match component associated with this grant, The hooklift truck was budgeted in full as part of the FY2015 vehicle replacement plan so the grant represents a savings of $125,000.00 to the vehicle replacement fund during this fiscal year.



Analysis:

The CMAQ funding will reduce the burden on the vehicle replacement fund associated with the replacement of one of our ten yard dump trucks used for hauling debris, material, and for snow removal. By replacing this dump truck with a hooklift truck it allows us to place dumpsters at strategic locations around the city which improves the efficiency of street sweeping operations, and there by makes us eligible for the grant funding.



Alternatives:

1. Council could approve acceptance of this grant funding and enter into an agreement with the State of Nevada as outlined by staff.

2. Council could deny acceptance of this grant and therefore would not need to enter into an agreement with the State of Nevada.



Recommended Motion:

I move to approve entering into an agreement with the State of Nevada, and to accept the CMAQ grant in an amount not to exceed $125,000.00.
