RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of a Reinstatement and Amendment No. 1 of the Interlocal Agreement for the Monitoring Coastal Boundary Along Nueces County Beaches project (Nueces County and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Conrad Blucher Institute).
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. 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.
DISCUSSION
On September 10, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed an Interlocal Agreement with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC), Conrad Blucher Institute (CBI) to subcontract the project. The Interlocal Agreement with TAMUCC CBI is in the amount of the entire grant amount of $33,750.

The extension was requested to allow for the completion of the analysis and reporting associated with measurement of the AHT along the Nueces County beach shoreline. Note that the required data has been collected; however, the no-cost time extension will allow for completion of the associated analysis and white paper documentation of the survey.

There is no fiscal impact related to this item. The original Agreement expired on March 31, 2015; this amendment reinstates the Agreement and amends the end date to September 30, 2015.
