Subject:
Orange County Transportation Authority Annual Measure M2 Expenditure Report
RECOMMENDATION
Adopt Resolution
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
On November 7, 2006, voters approved Renewed Measure M, which is commonly referred to as M2.  M2 is a 30 year program extension of the original Measure M (1991-2011) to fund countywide transportation facility and service improvements by a transactions and use tax of one-half of one percent (1/2%).  M2 requires that each jurisdiction adopt an annual expenditure report to account for funds expended that satisfy the Measure M Maintenance of Effort (MOE) requirement and expenditures of all activities funded with M2 revenues within six (6) months of the jurisdiction’s fiscal year end. 

Each year, the City must provide specific documentation to the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) in order to maintain Measure M2 eligibility for local fair share and competitive grant funding.  OCTA is the local transportation authority responsible for administering proceeds of the M2 sales tax.  The City of Brea routinely applies for competitive funding through the Comprehensive Transportation Funding Program (CTFP), which is a component of M2.  The CTFP brings a number of competitive grant programs through M2 under one set of procedures and guidelines.  M2 funds enable the City to undertake significant capital projects that improve the transportation and circulation system in Brea.
 
In June 2020, the City Council approved and staff submitted all required documentation for the annual M2 eligibility requirements for FY 2020-21.  As mentioned previously, this Measure M2 Expenditure Report is required to be submitted within six (6) months of year-end to complete our eligibility requirements.  OCTA staff has reviewed a draft of this report and all attachments and provided preliminary approval.  By adopting this resolution, the City will maintain its compliance with this requirement. 
SUMMARY/FISCAL IMPACT
Continued compliance with the M2 Maintenance of Effort requirement will enable the City of Brea to continue being eligible for Local Fair Share and competitive grant funding.  This will have no negative impact to the General Fund.
