Fiscal Note

The proposed resolution amends the 2016 Adopted Operating Budget to appropriate $62,537 from Metro’s fund balance costs associated with the leased maintenance facility for Metro.  The recommended funding level will support terms in lease agreement, upfront costs, and the associated utility costs for the remainder of 2016.  The intent of the proposed leased facility is to increase available space to support the repair and maintenance services required for the transit fleet in Metro’s fixed route and para-transit programs.  Following the transfer of these funds, the remaining balance in Metro’s 2016 contingency will be $7,391,029.  The proposed lease agreement incorporates an annual 3% increase in both lease and utility cost for each subsequent year.

 

The proposed resolution approves the five year lease agreement for an estimated total cost of $441,451. The annualized cost of the five year term by fiscal year, including utilities, is as follows:
