Approval of the attached agreement accepts Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Local Agency Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant funds not to exceed $91,200 to purchase and install emission control devices on 19 vehicles within the City's vehicle fleet. The emission control devices will help to lower emissions on the City's Fleet as part of the Green Fleet Program that was presented to Council this past March. The City requested the grant in the spring of 2006 responding to the State's call for the federal 2008/09 CMAQ Grant program. The project was approved by ODOT in 2006 and is contingent on federal funding authorization for FY08 (October 2008).
Staff researched incentives for reducing vehicle emissions and applied for the federal CMAQ project through the State's request for eligible projects. Staff has been introducing new technologies to the City's fleet to improve and reduce overall vehicle emissions. This project will provide project funds to purchase and install diesel conversion kits to reduce overall emissions. The project is estimated at a total of $114,000 with the federal share reimbursing the City up to $91,200. The City will provided the federal match of 10.27% and may be reimbursed for some or all of the installation costs if this is completed with in-house labor. The purchases will not be made until the City receives final program and funding approvals from ODOT regarding the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) budget process.
