RECOMMENDATION
Ratify execution of Amendment #1 to Subrecipient Grant Agreement GLO Contract No. 13-050-000-6917 Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 17 for the Upper Oso Watershed at LyondellBasell project.
BACKGROUND
On November 16, 2012, the Commissioners Court executed a Subrecipient Grant Agreement with the Texas General Land Office for the Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 17 project (Upper Oso Watershed @ LyondellBasell). The project will establish habitat along the perimeter of the wetland, incorporate a public education signage component, and create an educational partnership with the local school district. The wetland will provide drainage benefits by providing detention of stormwater on site and will be designed to use physical and biological treatment mechanisms to remove stormwater pollutants.
DISCUSSION
On September 5, 2013, the County was informed via certified mail that the Texas General Land Office that an amendment to the grant agreement was necessary. The original grant agreement referenced an award number through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that was incorrect.

Amendment #1 corrects the NOAA award number. There is no fiscal impact related to this grant item. The grant award amount from CMP remains at $60,000 with a required $40,000 in-kind County match.
