SUBJECT: RUBBERIZED ASPHALT CONCRETE GRANT- FY 06-07
1. Authorize the submittal of a grant application to the California Integrated Waste Management Board for a Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Use grant Program- FY 06-07.
BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION
The California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) administers the Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Use Grant Program. The Rubberized Asphalt Concrete (RAC) grant program is designed to promote markets for recycled-content products derived from waste tires generated in California and decrease the adverse environmental impacts created by unlawful disposal and stockpiling of waste tires. In FY 06-07 the amount of $2,500,000 will be available for the RAC grants. Eligible applicants may request grant funding up to a limit of $250,000 limit for eligible projects.
The grant reimburses at a rate of $4 per ton of RAC used on a project. Staff plans to apply for approximately $26,400 in grant funds and use approximately 6,600 tons of RAC on those streets. Project construction is planned to begin in April 2007. In the past the City has received similar grants for the use of RAC as part of the City's arterial overlay projects. Grant payments are on reimbursement basis.
The alternative would be to not submit a grant application. No funding will be received if the alternative is approved.
If approved, the City may receive a grant in FY 06-07 for the use of RAC on the City's arterial overlay project for two major streets: Hawthorne Boulevard (Silver Spur to North City limit), and southbound Palos Verdes Drive West (west City limit to Hawthorne Boulevard) and a short segment of northbound Palos Verdes Drive West (Hawthorne Blvd. to 400 feet south of Golden Cove Shopping Center). Staff is applying for approximately $26,400 in grant funds. The grant payment is on reimbursement basis. If the grant is awarded, the exact amount will depend on the CIWMB, it will help offset budgeted expenditures in the CIP fund.
