The following is a report by Carla O’Dell, Lincoln County Highway Supt., to the County Board on South River Road, FEMA Disaster 4225:

 

The current proposed Project Worksheet (PW) write up is in the amount of $289,350.00 which makes this a large project. If Lincoln County elects to proceed with the Scope of Work (SoW) as outlined in the PW, Lincoln County would get reimbursed for 87.5 % of the actual costs incurred, as long as they are within the SoW contained in the PW.

This amount could be more or less than the amount of the PW.

The current SoW does not include any bank stabilization, which we feel is a necessity.

Therefore, it is Mainelli Wagner’s recommendation that Lincoln County advise NEMA that the current PW is acceptable, request that they finalize the PW, and inform them that Lincoln County’s intention is to request an Improved Project (IP) as soon as the PW is finalized. If the IP is approved (we have not seen one denied), then the reimbursement limit would be capped at $253,181.25 or 87.5% of the actual costs incurred.

Adding the bank stabilization would definitely cause the PW limit to be reached or exceeded. If the Road relocation cost was less than the PW amount, that extra amount would be captured as part of the IP. The only amount that would be the County’s responsibility would be anything over the $253,181.25.

We would propose minimizing the distance the road was shifted south, trenching in rock riprap as bank stabilization in the upland position so that,111·ei::mitting would not be an issue and keep Lincoln County’s share of the project costs with budget One option to assist in keeping costs down would be to use Lincoln County forces for the Road Construction portion of the project.

Motion by Hewgley, seconded by Henry to approve and authorize Carla O’Dell, Lincoln County Highway Supt., to work through NEMA and FEMA to proceed with the Project Worksheet based on the updated Scope of Work received on the South River Road Project, FEMA Disaster 4225. Upon roll call vote Hewgley, Henry and Deterding voted “aye”.  Nays, none.
