RECOMMENDATION

  1. Authorize the submittal of a grant application to the California Integrated Waste Management Board for a rubberized asphalt concrete grant- FY 04-05.
  2. Adopt Resolution 2005- ___, authorizing the Director of Public Works to execute all necessary applications, contracts, agreements, amendments, and payment requests for the purpose of securing grant funds, and implementing and carrying out the programs.

BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION

The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) administers the tire grant programs, SB 1346, and provides opportunities to divert waste tires from landfill disposal, prevents illegal tire dumping, and promotes markets for recycled-content tire products. In FY 04-05 the amount of $1,200,000 will be available for the rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC) grants. Eligible applicants may request grant funding from $6,250 to $50,000 for eligible projects. The City plans to use rubberized asphalt concrete in the upcoming arterial overlay project. This is a grant eligible activity. In the past, RAC has been successfully used in RPV on similar projects. In FY 03-04, the City received a grant in the amount of $8,300 for the use of approximately 7,000 tons of RAC as part of the City's arterial overlay project on Hawthorne Blvd. and Crenshaw Blvd.

The grant application and Resolution No. 2005- __ must be submitted by January 14, 2005. If the City receives the grant, it will offset expenditures in Capital Improvement Project (CIP) fund. Staff time for administering the grant will be absorbed by the Waste Reduction fund.

ALTERNATIVE

The alternative would be to not submit a grant application. No funding will be received if the alternative is approved.

FISCAL IMPACT

If approved, the City may receive a grant in FY 04-05 for the use of RAC on the City's arterial overlay project. There is a maximum grant of up to $50,000 per applicant. If the grant is awarded, the exact amount will depend on the CIWMB and will help offset budgeted expenditures in the CIP fund.
