RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of Amendment No. 3 to Subrecipient Grant Agreement GLO Contract No. 14-094-000-7962 Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 18 for the Hilltop Nature Park Enhancements.
BACKGROUND
On October 23, 2013, the Commissioners Court executed a Subrecipient Grant Agreement with the Texas General Land Office for the Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 18 for the Hilltop Nature Park Enhancements. CMP 18 focuses on five primary issues of concern to coastal communities: coastal hazards, wetland protection, water quantity and water quality, dune protection, and shoreline access. Specifically, the CMP identifies coastal natural resource areas (CNRAs) and identifies uses or activities that may adversely affect those areas, and sets uniform policies to address those effects.

On March 18, 2015, the Commissioners Court executed Amendment No. 1 to extend the contract end date from March 31, 2015 to December 31, 2015. On November 18, 2015, the Commissioners Court executed Amendment #2 to extend the contract date to March 31, 2016.
DISCUSSION
Due to significant pricing changes from the time of application to the bidding process, the County found that the project could not be completed in its entirety with the grant funds that were currently available. An additional funding request was submitted to the GLO in November 2015 and we were notified in December 2015 that those funds may be available. The construction bid for this project was awarded and the County began negotiations on the contract pricing.

Amendment No. 3 extends the contract end date from March 31, 2016 to September 30, 2016. The work plan was also revised to reflect more feasible deliverable due dates.

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.
