BOARD MEETING DATE:

Honorable Board of Supervisors
James C. Porter, Director of Public Works
Addition to or Exclusion from the County Maintained Road System
Adopt a resolution certifying the mileage in the County maintained road system (Project No. R3001, F-331 [3C]).
Commitment: Responsive, effective and collaborative government.
Goal 20: Government decisions are based on careful consideration of future impact, rather than temporary relief or immediate gain.
This action furthers the above-mentioned commitment and goal by assisting the State in their calculation for the allocation of gas tax revenues back to the local agencies.
Previous Board Action
Adopted a similar resolution in previous years.
Section 2121 of the California Streets and Highways Code requires counties to report to the State each year, the total mileage of their maintained road system. The total County maintained mileage previously reported to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) was 315.88 miles.
The proposed total County maintained mileage to be reported to Caltrans this year is 314.76 miles. This is a net reduction of 1.12 miles and is due to the deletion of roads that were annexed to the City of Redwood City and to the Town of Hillsborough, and adjustment of mileage of existing maintained roads.
A resolution has been approved as to form by County Counsel.
There is no impact to the General Fund. There is a slight impact to the Road Fund – less than $680, as only a small portion of the gas taxes the Road Fund receives is based on County maintained miles.
