Every public agency in the State of Indiana has to have a pavement asset management plan in place in order to apply for any future street projects funded with federal money. A five year plan also needs to be submitted to LTAP in order to submit for a Community Crossing Matching Grant. Last year these grants were funded 50% by the State and 50% match by the local government. In 2017, Legislators are proposing 80% funded by the State with a 20% match for communities with a population less than 50,000. It’s passed the House and is awaiting approval by Senate. FPBH is proposing to meet with the Town and prepare submittals for projects chosen along with the engineer’s estimates of an hourly rate not to exceed a fee of $1,000 to $2,500 depending on the number of projects submitted and to complete our five year plan for a lump sum fee of $500. (FPBH Inc. completed our road inventory last year)
