BACKGROUND:
In 2012 The Woodlands Township and the City of Conroe were named dual designated direct recipients of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding for the provision of public transportation in the newly formed Conroe-The Woodlands Large Urbanized Area (UZA).  Through an Interlocal Agreement (ILA), effective October 1, 2012, the Township and the City of Conroe created a Transit Advisory Committee (now known as the Mobility Committee) to advise and consult with the two direct recipients for the provision of public transportation services within the UZA.  Under the agreement, the Township and the City of Conroe share equally in the responsibilities and costs for the administration of the UZA Mobility Committee which meets quarterly. The original ILA by and between the Township and the City expired on September 30, 2017 and an amendment was passed to extend the terms of the ILA until October 1, 2022.

A new provision was added under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act for nonfixed route paratransit transportation services. It retains the eligibility for grant recipients to use up to 10 percent of a recipient’s annual formula apportionment under sections 5307 and 5311 for the provision of non-fixed route Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary paratransit services at an 80 percent federal share. The proposed second amendment to the Interlocal Agreement is to add a capital reimbursement rate policy for ADA paratransit.

The Board of Directors is asked to consider approval of the second amendment of the ILA that has been reviewed and agreed to as to form by the Township's Attorney and City of Conroe's City Attorney.
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the second amendment of the ILA for the Conroe-The Woodlands UZA and authorize the President/General Manager to execute the agreement as approved to final form by the Township Attorney.
