INFORMATION: At the June 18, 2019 Board of Aldermen meeting, the Board adopted a resolution to allocate $100,000 of sidewalk bond funds to address project overruns (<https://carrboro.legistar.com/MeetingDetail.aspx?ID=686486&GUID=87B4B141-060E-43B0-9B7E-2BAA056385A7&Options=&Search>=).  On a parallel track, staff requested additional transit funds from the Orange County Transit Plan to cover the shortfall and, at the October staff working group meeting, the voting members approved staff’s request to increase the budget for the Rogers Road bus shelter and sidewalk project from to $31,889 to $120,888.83 (Attachment B).  The purpose of this agenda item is to accept the transit funds and subsequently reallocate up to $100,000 back to the sidewalk bond fund.  There is no match requirement for the use of transit tax funds. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: The fiscal impact is to add $20,888.83 to the Capital Project Ordinance by adding $120,888.83 of Orange County Transit funding and returning $100,000 of bond funding to the Sidewalk Bond Fund reserve.  There is no staff impact associated with this request.

 

RECOMMENDATION:r It is recommended that the Town Council approve the budget amendment to the Capital Improvement Project Ordinance (Attachment A).
