Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution awards the Low-No Emission Grant to Metro Transit and amends the adopted 2018 capital budget to accept $1,278,950 of federal funding and $31,000 of private contribution funds within the Transit Coaches capital program in 2018. Funds under this grant will be used to support the Transit Coaches program within the Metro Transit Capital budget to purchase three electric buses and pay for project management assistance. Up to 90% of the total cost of the electric buses ($1,278,950) is funded by USDOT/FTA with the remaining local share to be funded from a contribution from MG&E ($31,000) and budgeted general obligation debt ($187,050) in the adopted 2018 Transit Coaches capital program. The resolution has no 2018 operating budget impact as the electric buses will be delivered for operation in the 2019 fiscal year; operating costs of the the electric buses are anticipated budget neutral.

The proposed resolution also authorizes the sole source agreement for the electric bus delivery and project management with the Center for Transportion and Environment (CTE) and Proterra as planned in the grant application and award.
