SUBJECT:

Title

Approval to renew and amend the Interlocal Agreement with the Alamo Area Council of Governments for demand response transit services, authorizing the City Manager to execute all contract documents associated with this agreement, and approval of an expenditure in the amount of $489,380.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

On January 13, 2014, the New Braunfels City Council approved an interlocal agreement with the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) for demand response transit services for fiscal year 2014.  The City has continued to provide these services on an annual basis.  The total cost to the City for the transit program for FY 2021 is $489,380 to be paid in four quarterly payments. The total annual cost for FY 2021 ($489,380) is equal to the contract for last fiscal year (FY 2020)

 

The current ART Transit services support quality of life for our residents who need public transit services.   Without the City's continued support, these citizens may not have alternative access to transportation.
