Resolution No. 44-2018.  A Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into an agreement by 
and between the City of Monroe and the City of Middletown to provide a job shuttle service.

Background.   Workforce transit solutions continue to be the focus of ongoing discussions with many 
 local  employers.    Through  a  partnership  with  Butler  County  RTA  and  the  City  of 
Middletown, the City staff is proposing that we participate in the I-75 Job Shuttle Program.

The I-75 Job Shuttle Program is designed to provide targeted service within select employment 
areas. The shuttle's anticipated schedule covers all three shifts and limited Saturday operations 
as the request of our businesses. This service would complement the Miami Valley RTA service in 
South  Dayton,  as  well  as  SORTA's  42X  service  into  West  Chester.  The  proposed  contract 
leverages  substantial  federal  and  private  sector  funding  for  the  term  of  the  agreement, 
 and  it contains provisions to cancel the contract in the event that funding fails to come 
through. The total annual shuttle cost is approximately $260,000 - nearly 80% of the route will be 
funding by grant funding and the private sector. Although not reflected in the operating capital, 
Park North has agreed to virtually match the City's annual contribution by paying for two bus 
shelters with an estimated cost of $20,000 in 2019. The proposed contract has a 3 year term. This 
is based on the recommendation  of  various  transit  agencies  that  acknowledge  it  may  take  
time  to  build  the ridership  as  company's  adjust  their  recruitment  strategies  and  
employees  learn  the  route.  (We anticipate starting the route as soon as possible (no later than 
September), so there is a partial year referenced in the contract in addition to the 3 full years of operations.)

Emergency Resolution No. 64-2018.  A Resolution approving a Then-and-Now Certificate in the
amount of $9,345.29 to Middletown Transit and declaring an emergency.


Background. Staff is submitting a then-and-now for payment to Middletown Transit for the 2018 
operational cost of the WorkLink transit program that was approved by City Council earlier this 
year.  Staff did not open up a purchase order because the final service cost had not been 
determined. The 2018 service fee is being taken out of the existing economic development budget.

Moving forward, the 2019 service will be paid by purchase order.
