    Drive as main access to Community Parks A,B, C, E & F.

3. Only existing roadways Sections 1, 2 ,3 & 4 were surveyed.

4. Undeveloped roads – Section 4 - Ridge, Paisano, Antler, Lyndon and Clark were not measured for

    this Existing Road Maintenance Planning purpose. Terms of Llano County positon letter of 2015 apply.

5. Chip and seal resurfacing maintenance should be conducted in no loner than 10 year cycles, 5 years resurface in Is recommended. Keeping “good road good” is standard practice by state, county and city governments.

6. Current road conditions suggest a 2017 resurfacing project be scheduled with Llano County.

7. POA supplied MATERIAL COSTS based on 2015 contract pricing:

                         120 tons of Grade 5 material  5 ton/19.30                     $2,316 per MILE

                          4,106 Gallons of oil x $1.74/gallon                                  $7,144 per MILE


    TOTAL ESTIMATED COST (2015 BID PRICING)                     $9,460 x 4.29 MILES            $40,583.00




Current (2015) costs of materials could increase decrease in 2016 contract awarded which would impact 2017 POA scheduled maintenance costs.


Road Committee Recommendations:


1)      POA BOD Approve allocation of ‘up-to $48,000” of current reserves for existing road maintenance scheduled for implementation in 2017 as R&B schedules allow. Final costs to be determined by Llano County R&B Materials 2016 bids in effect.
