Title: To authorize the Director of Public Service to submit Federal Attributable Funds roadway improvement project applications to the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission for consideration for funding within the Transportation Improvement Program; and to authorize the Director of Public Service to execute project agreements for approved projects for the Department of Public Service. ($0.00)
Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) will be accepting Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) applications through August 13, 2018. This is an opportunity for the City to secure outside funding for various roadway improvement projects. MORPC has approximately $30-40 million to distribute to all applicants for new projects from 2018 through 2023.

The current round of applications will be establishing the 2020-2025 TIP as well as its long-range project listing. The TIP is composed of these component sub-programs: The Surface Transportation Program (STP); the Transportation Enhancement Program (TE) and the Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Program (CMAQ). MORPC requires that a designated official be authorized to submit said applications and execute project agreements for approved projects.

In addition to funding applications for projects not previously submitted, MORPC requests the City "reauthorize" projects submitted prior to 2018 to reaffirm the City's continuing commitment to those projects.

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to submit applications to TIP and to execute project agreements for approved projects. Specific projects for which applications will likely be submitted are listed within the body of this ordinance.

2. FISCAL IMPACT
The TIP can fund up to eighty percent (80%) of total right-of-way and construction expenses. Preliminary engineering and design expenses are not eligible for funding, except in certain situations. No financial participation is required at this time. The expenditure of City funds will be approved in the form of design and/or construction contracts that will be submitted to City Council at a later time.
