Approval of USDA Forest Service Road Project Agreement No. 22-RO-11031200-184 to update the Environmental Document for the unpaved portion of Forest Service Road 512.
Background Information
Gila County entered into a Forest Road Cooperative Agreement (Coop Agreement) on February 5, 2020, in order to plan, survey, design, construct, reconstruct, improve and maintain listed forest roads. Schedule A, which is attached to the Coop Agreement, identifies the maintenance responsibilities of the parties.

The Coop Agreement allows for specific Project Agreements between the parties with the intent of completing work as expeditiously as available funds or work opportunities allow.
The Statement of Work outlines Forest Road 512 (FSH 512) Environmental Assessment (EA) Update. Gila County and Tonto National Forest Engineering will accomplish the update of the environmental clearances along Forest Road 512 to support the continuation of paving the unpaved portion of Forest Road 512.
The EA has not been updated since it was approved in 1998 for the portion of the road that remains unpaved. Gila County will use the funds to update the EA. With an approved EA the County can continue to pave the unpaved portion of Forest Road 512 when funds become available.
The Public Works Department Director recommends approval on USDA, Forest Service Agreement No. 22-RO-11031200-184 for the reimbursable amount of $472,000 for updating the EA on Forest Road 512.
Suggested Motion
Information/Discussion/Action to approve Forest Service Road Project Agreement No. 22-RO-11031200-184 for the Environmental update in the reimbursable amount of $472,000 for Forest Service Road 512. (Steve Sanders)
