FAIRFIELD — Solano County supervisors are expected on Tuesday to support an MTC request for federal funding tied to Solano360 roadwork and set the annual appropriation limits, but much of their time will be spent recognizing community organizations and other celebrations.
The board will consider a resolution of support for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s request for $94,430 in federal funding for the Fairgrounds Drive Improvement Project.
While the project is independent of Solano360, it is viewed as a central piece to the $94 million fairgrounds revitalization proposal.
The supervisors meet at 9 a.m. in the first-floor chambers of the county building, 675 Texas St., in Fairfield.
The board also will consider setting the annual appropriation limit at $643.22 million, and the limit for the East Vallejo Fire Protection District at $1.07 million and the limit for the Consolidated County Service Area at $243,242, county documents state.
The countywide number is up from $604 million last year, but holds no functional relation to the actual general fund tax amount in the county, which is estimated at $173.2 million, the Auditor’s Office reported.
The appropriation limit was established by the Gann Initiative in November 1979 to control spending growth, and is adjusted year to year by a formula that combines such factors as the cost of living and population changes.
The Fairgrounds Drive and appropriation limits are part of the board consent calendar, which is generally viewed as routine matters that are handled with a single vote.
Also on that calendar is consideration of a three-year $750,000 contract with Kofile Technologies to preserve and digitalize the County Recorder’s historical records.
Among the groups to be recognized by the board are the state champion Vanden High girls basketball team, the Phillipine community and the LGBT community. Junior ROTC, Public Works…
