RECOMMENDATION
Rescind the execution of a County Transportation Infrastructure Fund (CTIF) Grant Program Agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), as authorized on 07/29/2020, #4.B.1.; and authorize the execution of a revised County Transportation Infrastructure Fund (CTIF) Grant Program Agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
BACKGROUND
On Feb. 27, 2020, the Texas Transportation Commission (commission) adopted rules, codified as Title 43 Texas Administrative Code §§15.180 - 15.197 (rules), that prescribe the policies and procedures governing the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) implementation of the County Transportation Infrastructure Fund Grant Program (program) under Transportation Code, Chapter 256, Subchapter C. Pursuant to the program, TxDOT will administer a grant program using the transportation infrastructure fund and provide funding to eligible counties for transportation infrastructure projects located in areas of the state affected by increased oil and gas production.
DISCUSSION
On May 27, 2020, the Commissioners Court ratified the submission of a grant application to the Texas Department of Transportation for the 2020 County Transportation Infrastructure Fund (CTIF) Grant Program.  

At that time, Nueces County’s expected allocation was $285,792, assuming all 254 counties apply for their allocation.  TxDOT has since informed Nueces County that it has been awarded/allocated $311,183.  This grant does require a 20% match, which will be met through in-house design, engineering, and construction and grant administration services.

On 07/29/2020, agenda item #4.B.1., the Commissioners Court authorized the execution of the Program Agreement; however, TxDOT has requested some changes to the Agreement.  The County added the contract, district, code chart, and project number information at the top of each page and TxDOT provided the name of their authorized signatory on page 7 of the Agreement.
