Background
On October 23, 2012, the Department of Transportation presented the Board of Supervisors an overview of the Department's Road Maintenance Program and Pavement Management Program.  The Board expressed interest in possibly investing in the County road system.  The Department is returning to the Board with road system investment options for the Board's consideration.  
 
Reason for Recommendation
This is an informational item being provided to assist the Board of Supervisors in making decisions about whether or not to increase funding for the Department of Transportation's roadway maintenance activities and/or proposed asphalt concrete overlay projects.  Please see attached staff report for details.  There is no recommendation associated with this agenda item.  
 
Action to be taken following the Board Approval:
Should the Board decide to fund more 2013 maintenance work by increasing the General Fund contribution to the Road Fund, the Department will return to the Board on December 18, 2012 with a budget transfer request.  The Department will then modify the 2013 maintenance work plan accordingly.
Should the Board decide to implement any of the proposed overlay projects, the Department will return to the Board on December 18, 2012 with more refined project estimates and a budget transfer request.  In order to get the projects on the ground in the 2013 construction season, the Department will need to begin environmental analysis work in early January.
