Subject:
Road Repair and Accountability Act, Local Streets and Roads Funding Program, Fiscal Year 2021-22 Proposed Project List
RECOMMENDATION
Approve Resolution No. 2021-025 Adopting a List of Projects Funded the Road Repair and Accountability Act.
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
On April 28, 2017, the Governor signed Senate Bill 1, which is known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 ("RRAA"). The RRAA increased fuel taxes and vehicle registration fees to address basic road maintenance, rehabilitation, and critical safety needs on both the state highway and local road system.

In 2017, the State Controller ("Controller") began depositing this new funding into a newly created Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account ("RMRA") (Fund 221). A percentage of this new RMRA funding has been apportioned by formula to eligible cities and counties pursuant to Streets and Highways Code ("SHC") Section 2032(h). The City of Brea has been receiving annual funding pursuant to a prescribed formula in the approximate amount of $800,000 per year. 

Additionally, RRAA emphasizes the importance of accountability and transparency in the delivery of California’s transportation programs. Therefore, in order to be eligible for RMRA funding, the statute requires cities and counties to provide basic annual RMRA project reporting to the California Transportation Commission ("Commission") and must adopt a “Project List” by resolution and submit it to the Commission by July 1 of each year. 

Therefore, for FY 2021-22, staff proposes to use RMRA funds for CIP project 7327 - Central Avenue & State College Boulevard Street Improvements. This project will repair any damaged curb, gutter and sidewalk and will repave Central Avenue from West City Limit to Brea Boulevard and State College Boulevard from Brea Boulevard to Lambert Road.  Staff has prepared a Resolution to adopt the Project List, which complies with the RRAA Guidelines.
 
FISCAL IMPACT/SUMMARY
The RRAA Guidelines require that cities/counties adopt a project list by resolution to demonstrate how they intend to use the FY 2021 -22 RMRA funds and submit said resolution to the Commission by July 1, 2021. Staff has identified a project within the Draft 2021-22 CIP, Project 7327, that would be eligible for these funds. Therefore, staff recommends that the City Council consider approving a Resolution that adopts the RMRA Project List for submittal to the Commission by July 1, 2021. If approved, staff will program the RMRA funds within the 2021-22 CIP for Project 7327. There is no negative impact to the General Fund for this item.
