Resolution - Public Transit Services:
Consider a resolution ratifying the acts of the Chief Financial Officer, in executing FY 2021 Section 5310 Grant, TX-2021-104-00, from the Federal Transit Administration, for operating and capital to enhance the mobility of elderly individuals and individuals with disabilities.
The Federal Transit Administration has allocated $217,663 in Section 5310 Grant funds to the City of Lubbock/Citibus. The funds from Section 5310 Grants are to be used for public transportation projects planned, designed, and carried out, to meet the special needs of elderly individuals and individuals with disabilities when public transportation is insufficient, inappropriate, or unavailable. The Section 5310 Grant funds will be used to purchase 2 paratransit vans, and to fund paratransit trips outside the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) 3/4 mile boundary. The grant has been incorporated into the budget, which has been previously approved by the City Council.
A minimum of 55% of program funds must be used on capital projects, and a maximum of 45% must be used for public transportation operating projects that exceed the requirements of the ADA, or projects that improve access to public transportation services by elderly individuals and individuals with disabilities.
The grant has been electronically executed by the Chief Financial Officer for the City of Lubbock.
The $119,075 local match required for this grant of $217,663 has already been included in the Citibus Budget.
