3. Recommend Approval of the Revised Administrative Code, Rules of Order, Fiscal and Travel, Conference, Training and Business Expense Reimbursement Policies – ACTION* memo
It is TIMMA direction to review the Administrative Code and all policies periodically to ensure compliance with current statutes and TIMMA objectives. We are recommending changes to the Administrative Code, Rules of Order, Fiscal Policy, and Travel, Conference, Training and Business Expense Reimbursement Policy to conform to applicable law and keep consistent with state and local government codes.
End of Consent Agenda
The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) and TIMMA have developed a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that defines roles and responsibilities associated with the new transit service that will be provided between the East Bay and Treasure Island. Key elements of the MOU include the proposed service plan, operating cost assumptions, and a strategy to pursue funding for zero-emission bus grant funding. Staff will provide an overview of the MOU at the meeting.
Pursuant to TIMMA’s Fiscal Policy, the agency shall adopt an annual budget each year. The purpose of the annual budget is to provide management guidance and control over disbursement of TIMMA’s revenues in accordance with the goals and objectives as determined by the TIMMA Board and as set forth in other policies. The proposed Fiscal Year 2017/18 Annual Budget includes projections of revenues, operating and administrative costs, and professional services expenditures, as well as a description of TIMMA’s proposed work program for the coming fiscal year. Total revenues are projected to be $3,660,536 from various funding sources, and total expenditures are projected to be $3,660,536 from technical professional services, personnel and non-personnel expenditures.
6. Update on the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District Zero-Emission Vehicle Fleet Planning – INFORMATION* presentation
As stated in the draft Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit), the parties anticipate that AC Transit will operate high-capacity, 60-foot commuter coaches on the proposed East Bay bus service, designed to AC Transit’s specifications for Transbay buses. Treasure Island Community Development, the master developer, is responsible for providing funding for the full cost of purchasing nine new standard 60-foot commuter coaches for the East Bay bus service. However, the MOU commits the parties to exploring specification of clean fuel/zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs). AC Transit estimates ZEV buses to have an incremental cost of $300,000 per bus in 2017 dollars. The incremental cost of ZEVs requires additional grant funding; the draft MOU includes a joint grant funding application strategy for the incremental costs of ZEVs, including the costs of electric charging infrastructure. The parties agree to jointly advocate for ZEV vehicles and charging infrastructure in the Fiscal Year 2017/18 timeframe, including regional Clean Air Vehicle funding. No later than 24 months prior to the start of services, TIMMA and AC Transit will execute a Procurement Agreement to codify the procurement process and financial agreements needed to obtain the buses required for initial service levels. At the meeting, AC Transit staff will present a summary of the agency’s ZEV fleet plans.
