Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 672-12-.12 - County and City Contract Program

(1) Scope and Purpose. To provide capital assistance for each Local Government (County/City) to maintain and improve the roads and drainage within their respective transportation systems.
(2) Terms and Conditions. Each Local Government must submit a priority list of desired projects they wish to have considered for State Aid assistance through the County and City Contract Program. The priority list is evaluated by the Department of Transportation's engineers based on a needs assessment and cost estimates for the project. The Department of Transportation's engineers make recommendations to the Commissioner of Transportation.
(3) Eligible Recipients. All Counties and Cities within the State are eligible. State and Local School systems qualify but funding contracts are through respective Counties and Cities.
(4) Criteria for Award. Priorities that are located on the County, City, or State property are eligible for consideration. Eligible priorities must meet acceptable needs evaluation and funding must be available prior to approval under this Program. County and City Contracts are issued at the discretion of the Commissioner for paving, resurfacing, sidewalks, drainage materials, parking facilities, etc. Minimum rights of way requirements set by the Department of Transportation Board must be acquired for consideration.
(5) Directions and Deadlines. Priority lists can be submitted at any time but the Local Governments are encouraged to submit them once a year and updated on a yearly basis. Projects are selected from the priority list by separate request and selected projects are prepared for contract. County and City Contracts have no deadline for completion of the project but the Local Governments are encouraged to complete the work in a timely manner. County and City Contracts placed out for bid by the Department have completion dates established based on time needed to complete the project. Counties and Cities with contracts authorized but not awarded due to rights of way or other clearance problems are encouraged to proceed diligently toward clearance of the project or remove the project from their priority list. This will allow the funds to be used on other projects.

All contracts are engineered and supervised by Department of Transportation engineers, following current guidelines and specifications for construction.
