Staff recommends approving the amended Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for reimbursement to the City for maintenance of non-landscaped portion of HWY 441 from College Drive to CR 473/ Bluegill Drive
On September 28, 2009 the City Commission approved Resolution 8519, an MOA with FDOT to reimburse the City for maintenance of the non-landscaped portion of HWY 441 from College Drive to CR 473/Bluegill Drive. The original agreement included verbiage allowing for an increase in reimbursement up to seven and one half (7.5) percent. In September of 2009, a Legislative Order came down to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) whereby a ‘No Escalation’ directive was enacted on all FDOT contracts which includes contracts with Local Governments such as Memorandum of Agreements (MOA’s). This ‘No Escalation’ directive eliminates the opportunities for those holding contracts with FDOT to request an increase in reimbursement funding upon renewal
1. Approve the amended MOA or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Approval of the amended MOA will provide reimbursement of $9,156.00 annually for non-landscaped maintenance of Hwy 441 from College Drive to CR 473/Bluegill Drive for the three-year period. The Fiscal Year 2009-10 budget includes this revenue and associated expenses.
