Meeting Date: 04/18/2019  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon an Interlocal Agreement with the San Jacinto River Authority regarding GIS Data Sharing (C-2019-0006);
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no direct fiscal impact to The Woodlands Township related to the Interlocal Agreement (ILA) with San Jacinto River Authority regarding GIS Data Sharing.   However, the data the Township receives from SJRA because of  the ILA will result in increased efficiencies and effectiveness for the Township.  
BACKGROUND:
San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA) has gathered and continues to gather information and data for infrastructure planning to determine water supply and transmission system and waste collection, treatment, and disposal system requirements for its customers located within the boundaries of The Woodlands Township, and such information and data has been or will be entered into a geographic information system for use by the employees of the Authority and consultants, contractors and users authorized by SJRA.
 
Similarly, the Township has gathered and continues to gather information and data for its infrastructure planning and administrative purposes, and such information and data has been or will be entered into a geographic information system for use by employees of the Township and other consultants, contractors, and users authorized by the Township.
 
The information both agencies gathers can be mutually beneficial to the agencies regarding facility locations, field locates, operations, planning, and avoidance of utility interruptions.  These benefits can improve operating efficiencies and the effectiveness for the Township in performing park and pathway maintenance, streetscape maintenance, capital projects, special event/race planning and assisting residents and businesses with water and sewer service issues.   In addition, the information can be beneficial for incorporation planning and to the future municipal government.

An Interlocal Agreement with the San Jacinto River Authority regarding GIS Data Sharing has been prepared for consideration (Attachment A).
 
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the Interlocal Agreement with the San Jacinto River Authority regarding GIS Data Sharing and authorize the President/General Manager to execute the agreement as approved to final form by the Township Attorney.
