Topic: 

A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Request the Re-Allocation of Transportation Enhancement Act Grant Funds from Mosby Heritage Signage Project to the Marshall Main Street Project

Topic Description:

In Fiscal Year 2000, the Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded the Mosby Heritage Signage Project $32,000 in Transportation Enhancement Act (TEA) grant funds.  The grant funds were to be used to develop a logo and design and install signs designating the boundary lines of the Mosby Heritage Area.  This project was completed in 2003, with a grant balance of $8,550 remaining. 

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has requested that the County close the project, so the unexpended grant funds can be allocated to another TEA project.  Per discussions with VDOT staff, upon closing the Mosby Heritage Signage project, the County can request the unexpended grant funds be transferred from that project to the Marshall Main Street Project, another approved TEA project in the County.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

When the Marshall Business and Residents Association (MBRA) requested the County sponsor its TEA grant application for the Marshall Main Street project in November 2007, it was stated the MBRA would provide funding for the required local match.

If the remainder of the grant ($8,550) is utilized for the Marshall Main Street TEA project, a 20% local match ($1,710) will be required.
