BACKGROUND
Revenue Sharing
In October 2017, the City of Danville submitted Revenue Sharing Program applications to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for three Fiscal Year 2020 projects.  VDOT's Revenue Sharing Program provides localities with a funding source for transportation improvement projects. The program requires the locality to match the awarded allocations. The City's matching funds were previously appropriated in General Fund Capital Projects.

State of Good Repair
In January 2019, the City of Danville submitted State of Good Repair program applications to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for five Fiscal Year 2020 projects. VDOT's State of Good Repair program has provided localities with a funding source to do resurfacing on certain identified segments of primary streets that fall below a certain condition rating.   

Transportation Alternative Program
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) had previously allocated just over $300,000 in Transportation Alternative funds for an extension of the Riverwalk Trail between Commerce Street and Advance Street.  Construction bids were received in May 2019, and the lowest responsive bid was over the project budget and estimate. VDOT allocated additional funds so the project could be awarded. The program requires the locality to match the awarded allocations. 
RECOMMENDATION

It is recommended that City Council adopt the three accompanying Ordinances Amending the Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Appropriation Ordinance, to appropriate Revenue Sharing Program funds, State of Good Repair Program funds and Transportation Alternative Program funds from the Virginia Department of Transportation.
