BOARD/COMMISSION REVIEW:
N/A

BACKGROUND:
The other related item on the City Council agenda is:
* 21-0532 Adopt a resolution to allow for the expenditure of State Motor Fuel Tax

The City currently maintains almost 460 centerline miles of road through the annual street maintenance program. The annual resurfacing program ensures smooth roads and protects the infrastructure investment in the pavement base. When resurfacing is delayed, the roadway can no longer be effectively resurfaced and base failures will lead the new pavement to fail much sooner than normal. This results in additional funds being expended to keep the roadways in a serviceable condition.

The Transportation, Engineering and Development (TED) Business Group will conduct two street resurfacing programs in 2021:
1. One using state motor fuel tax (MFT) funds
2. One using both MFT and City funds.

In March 2021, the TED Business Group issued Bid 21-002, 2021 Street Resurfacing Program-City, to seek contractors to resurface approximately 78,363 feet (14.84 miles) of various local roadways. This is an annual program to rehabilitate existing streets by resurfacing the existing pavement. This work will be paid for using both state motor fuel tax (MFT) and City funds. The expenditure of state MFT funds requires the approval and supervision of the Illinois Department of Transportation. The corporate authorities of the municipality must adopt a resolution appropriating the MFT funds (agenda item 21-0532).
