EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

On April 28, 2017, the Governor signed Senate Bill No. 1 (SB1) to address basic road maintenance, rehabilitation, and critical safety needs on the State of California's (State) highways and local streets and roads. The City of Alameda's (City) 2021-23 Capital Budget includes an appropriation of $1,850,000 in SB1 revenue in Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-23 to the City's pavement management program.

The resolution is intended to meet this reporting requirement.

BACKGROUND

On April 28, 2017, the Governor signed SB1 to address basic road maintenance, rehabilitation, and critical safety needs on the State of California's (State) highways and local streets and roads. SB1 provides for the deposit of various funds for the program in the State's Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA), including additional revenues from a $0.12 per gallon increase in the motor vehicle fuel (gasoline) tax and 50% of a $0.20 per gallon increase in the diesel excise tax. Both of these revenue enhancements include an inflation adjustment in future years, and each took effect on November 1, 2017.

In March 2018, the Commission adopted reporting guidelines for jurisdictions receiving this funding. The Commission's guidelines require that cities submit a list of projects proposed to be funded with RMRA for FY 2022-23 to the Commission by July 1, 2022, and that the project description be adopted by resolution of the City Council at a regular public meeting.
