OCOPP <br /> florid❑ <br /> AGENDA ITEM COVER SHEET <br /> Meeting Date: March 17, 2015 <br /> Item # ..3 // <br /> Reviewed By: <br /> Contact Name: Stephen C. Krug Department Director: Z � <br /> Contact Number: 6002 City Manager: f, <br /> Subject: Railroad Reimbursement Agreement for Municipal Grade Crossing Traffic Control <br /> Devices — North Clarke Rd. Commissioner Wilsen, District 2 and Commissioner Keller, District 4. <br /> Background Summary: <br /> The City approved an agreement at the November 5, 2013 Commission meeting providing for funding <br /> from the Federal Highway Administration to the FDOT to install new railroad grade crossing signals on <br /> North Clarke Road at the Florida Central Railroad crossing. The purpose of the agreement was to <br /> allocate the Federal funds to upgrade existing grade crossing signals to meet current requirements and <br /> the upgrades have been completed. The Railroad has noted a clerical error in that the annual <br /> maintenance cost participation for the City was erroneously shown as 50% percent when it should have <br /> read 100% percent. The 100% cost participation is based on the Stipulation of Parties adopted by the <br /> City in 1992 for the construction of the then new Clarke Road over the existing railroad. The attached <br /> agreement conforms to the correct cost participation originally stipulated and approved by the City. <br /> Public Works recommends approving the agreement. <br /> Issue: <br /> Request the City Commission to approve the agreement with the FDOT for the crossing signals at the <br /> North Clarke Road railroad crossing. <br /> Recommendations <br /> Recommend the City Commission approve the Railroad Reimbursement Agreement for Municipal Grade <br /> Crossing Traffic Control Devices, FM No. 434952- 1- 57 -01, with the FDOT, and authorize the Mayor and <br /> City Clerk to execute the Agreement and Resolution. <br /> Attachments: <br /> Original FDOT Railroad Reimbursement Agreement for Municipal Grade Crossing Traffic Control <br /> Devices, FM No. 434952- 1- 57 -01, and Resolution. <br /> Copy of Original Stipulation of Parties, 1992. <br /> Financial Impact: <br /> The signal upgrades have been funded through a FHWA Aid Project administered by the FDOT. The <br /> financial impact to the City is the continuation of the annual $3,402.00 maintenance fee already <br /> incorporated in the budget. <br />
