STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The purpose of this resolution is to meet the requirements for the Minnesota department of transportation, office of state aid, use of state transportation bond funds for bridge replacement/rehabilitation. In order to be eligible for bridge bond monies, local units of government are required to adopt a resolution of proposed bridge replacement/rehabilitation projects for the next five years. This means that eligible projects will no longer be approved on essentially a first come/first served basis. Instead, funds will be available to project identified by the resolutions on a priority basis, and the city is expected to deliver final plans and specifications in a timely manner. This resolution will amend the local bridge priorities master list for state transportation funds.
