NATURAL RESOURCES/SOLID WASTE

 

 

A)

ACTION REQUESTED/PURPOSE:

 

 

Consider approval of the attached Interlocal Agreement with Captiva Erosion Prevention District (CEPD) to define cooperative roles for the anticipated 2013 beach nourishment project.  The Agreement includes options on how the County financial contribution would be calculated.  Policy decisions on these options are required from the Board in order to finalize the Agreement language.  Once the policy options are selected, the Board must approve a corresponding transfer of funds from Capital Improvement Tourist Development Beach Projects - Reserves for Future Capital Outlay to Captiva Beach Restoration Project, Grants and Aids to Local Governments (Project No. 403061). (#20130504-NATURAL RESOURCES)

 

FUNDING SOURCE:

 

Fund – Capital Improvement, Tourist Development Beach Projects; Program – Marine Services Major Maintenance Projects; Project – Captiva Renourishment.  Lee County and CEPD have been negotiating the interlocal agreement and sufficient reserves were accumulated in anticipation of future projects including Captiva nourishment and are available for this expense.

 

WHAT ACTION ACCOMPLISHES:

 

Selection of funding options will define County policy for calculation of cost sharing percentage for the Captiva project, which also includes nourishment on northern Sanibel.  The northern Sanibel nourishment is required by a 2000 County/CEPD/Sanibel Agreement and is the final mitigation for potential negative impacts from construction and extension of the terminal groin at Blind Pass.  The cost sharing percentages will be applied to eligible project costs as defined from the engineering phase (already complete) through post-construction maintenance.  The Agreement also establishes non-financial obligations of CEPD and the County.  The budget transfer moves funds from reserves into the project account.

 

MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATION:

 

An Interlocal Agreement for the 2013 Captiva Nourishment Project is recommended.  County staff has previously suggested a formula based approach for beach project funding that incorporates the relative storm protection and recreational benefits as well as the amount of public access.  That approach is consistent with funding options “A” and “E” for a County payment share in the amount of $4,170,000.  The Board will need to decide if there is sufficient public benefit or unique circumstances on Captiva Island to justify support of options “B” and/or “F”, for an additional County payment share in the amount of approximately $243,000 for “B” and/or $578,000 for “F”.
