RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of an Interlocal Agreement between Nueces County and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Conrad Blucher Institute, for monitoring the Nueces County Beaches project.
BACKGROUND
The National Sea Grant College Program, administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is a federal/state partnership that matches NOAA Sea Grant expertise and resources with state academic institutions. The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium (MASGC), created in 1972, is one of 33 Sea Grant programs. The University of Southern Mississippi is a consortium member.

On August 6, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed an Agreement with the University of Southern Mississippi in relation to the Sea Grant Program for the Monitoring Coastal Boundary along Nueces County Beaches project.

DISCUSSION
The purpose of the project is to document mean high tides and mean low tides within Nueces County. Assessing Sea level rise by reevaluating these two lines will provide beneficial data and when coupled with the research, new comprehensive conservation strategies can be developed to mitigate habitat and property impacts.

The project will be sub-contracted to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC), Conrad Blucher Institute (CBI) for the entire grant amount. The Interlocal Agreement with TAMUCC CBI is in the amount of the entire grant amount of $33,750.
