Fiscal Note
Adoption of the Resolution will not commit the Council to additional expenditures at this time, but represents a step toward significant potential impacts on future City capital and operating expenses. The continuing planning work may result in recommendations to implement a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) start-up system in the region. Future costs may be borne by a mix of Federal, State and Local dollars. Future extensions of the initial start-up BRT system may have additional impacts to City finances.

This Resolution authorizes continuation of high-capacity transit planning, acceptance of federal funds and authorizes Madison Metro to continue to administer the funding. City Planning Division staff estimate that the on-board survey work will require approximately one year to complete - at a total cost not to exceed $342,000. Funding sources for the on-board survey are a combination of Federal and State funds.

Planning staff resources will be reallocated to provide support for the Task Force without the need for additional expenditure. Any future expenditures associated with the project will require further Council approval.
