COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 200136

 

Affirming the City’s policy with respect to the Pavement Condition Index of the roadway system at an overall value of not less the “70” and reaffirming the City’s commitment to implement its comprehensive approach to street improvement, maintenance, and resurfacing in order to provide a level of service the traveling public reasonably expects.

 

WHEREAS, Committee Substitute for Resolution No. 180302, As Amended, directed the City Manager to maintain the established condition level of the roadway system to indicate that was the City’s intent to retain an overall condition level value of not less than “60,” on a scale of 0-100, where the value of “60” represents a roadway system that is needing repairs and improvements. A rating of “90” to “100” would show an excellent condition, “80” to “89,” good condition, “70” to “79,” fair condition, and below “60,” poor condition; and

 

WHEREAS, since the City failed to maintain an overall condition level value of not less than “60” for three consecutive years, in accordance with Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement No. 34, it can no longer use the modified approach and implemented traditional depreciation methodology when accounting for its roadway system beginning in Fiscal Year 2018-19; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council desires to set a higher standard for those portions of the roadway system that need repairs and improvements; and

 

WHEREAS, the City will implement a comprehensive approach to street improvement, maintenance, both routine and preventative, resurfacing and reconstruction, and will strive to provide a level of service the travelling public reasonably expects; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the Council hereby affirms the City’s policy with respect to the Pavement Condition Index of the roadway system, specifically the City’s intent to retain an overall value of not less than “70,” on a scale of 0 to 100, where the value of “70” represents a roadway system that is needing repairs and improvements.

 

Section 2. That the Council hereby directs the City Manager to continue evaluating and rating all segments of pavement and implement a comprehensive approach to street improvement, maintenance, both routine and preventative, resurfacing, and reconstruction, and to provide a level of service the traveling public reasonably expects of its roadway system.

 

Section 3. That the Council directs the City Manager to report back to the Transportation, Infrastructure and Operations Committee on a quarterly basis with progress reports.
