III.Measure C Extension Fiscal Year 2022-23 Resolution of Allocation [Denise DiBenedetto]

Summary:  At the June 8, 2022, meeting the Fresno County Transportation Authority Board approved Resolution 2022-06. 

California Public Utilities Code Section 142257 provides that the 2006 Measure C Extension Expenditure Plan shall specify the amount and the formula by which the retail transactions and use tax shall be allocated to each participating jurisdiction for Local Transportation Purposes. This is done annually at the budget hearing meeting.

Consistent with adopted policy for administration of the funds, the Authority requested and received the annual estimate of Measure C funds from the Fresno County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer-Tax Collector.

Based upon the annual estimate of total street miles from the California Department of Transportation, the annual estimate of population from the California Department of Finance, and the Measure C allocation formula as dictated by the 2006 Measure C Extension Expenditure Plan, the attached estimate of available funds and the annual apportionments has been calculated and included in Resolution 2022-06.
