Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of Amendment No. 1 to an agreement between the Texas Department of Agriculture and Nueces County, Contract No. 7214085 for the Colonia Fund: Construction (CFC), in relation to the Cindy Park colonia.
BACKGROUND
On November 18, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed a grant contract with the Texas Department of Agriculture. The project is for the installation of surface water lines and related household connections in the Cindy Park colonia, located off of FM 666 between FM 1833 and CR 48, along Cindy Lane. The residents currently rely on a dilapidated well or do not have a potable water source.
DISCUSSION
The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) has granted Nueces County an 18-month extension for this project in order to fully expend the grant funds. TDA has allowed the County to amend the Performance Statement to include additional water line work that will eventually provide a greater benefit to the residents of the Cindy Park colonia.

There is no fiscal impact related to this grant item. The grant amount remains at $500,000 with an in-kind match of $25,000. County department number 2792 has been established to track expenses for this project. To date, expenses total $252,546.22, which leaves $247,453.78 to be spent on the additional work outlined in the amended Performance Statement.
