Information
RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a water conservation plan in accordance with the Loan Forgiveness Agreement with the Texas Water Development Board for construction funding in relation to the Cindy Park colonia project.
BACKGROUND
The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) administers loan and grant programs that provide for the planning, acquisition, design, and construction of water related infrastructure and other water quality improvements. On April 28, 2015, the Commissioners Court executed a Loan Forgiveness Agreement with TWDB in the amount of $200,000 for planning and design for a new water distribution system in the Cindy Park Colonia. At the same Court meeting, an Escrow Agreement was executed with ValueBank Texas in accordance with the Loan Forgiveness Agreement.
DISCUSSION
On September 14, 2016, the Commissioners Court adopted a resolution authorizing the submission of an Application for Financial Assistance for Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Construction to TWDB. This new Application for Financial Assistance will be for the construction portion of the Cindy Park Colonia project. The new water distribution system will provide water to Cindy Park from the nearest surface water source at Indian Trails Colonia, using the plans and designs provided by LNV, the project engineer for the first phase of the project. The funding is being provided as 100% loan forgiveness in the amount of $830,000. Before the loan forgiveness can be closed and the funds delivered, the County must adopt a water conservation plan. Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) rules require that entities that are applying for or receiving financial assistance of more than $500,000, to develop, submit, and implement a water conservation program for the life of the loan and report annually on the progress of the program.
