RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the execution of Amendment No. 2 to Subrecipient Grant Agreement GLO Contract No. 15-053-000-8462 Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 19 for the Hilltop Nature Park Enhancements Phase II.
BACKGROUND
On November 6, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed a Subrecipient Grant Agreement with the Texas General Land Office for the Coastal Management Program (CMP) Cycle 19 for the Hilltop Nature Park Enhancements Phase II. CMP 19 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.
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. The project engineer scaled down the project and the GLO approved of the changes. All of the above delayed the project. All major construction elements are complete; however, more time is needed to complete the in-kind work.

Amendment No. 2 extends the contract end date from September 30, 2016 to March 31, 2017. 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.
