SMALL CITY PAVEMENT PRESERVATION AND SIDEWALK ACCOUNT
For the cities' convenience, TIB staff will conduct all pavement condition ratings on a rotational basis every four years. If the city maintains their own pavement condition rating, the methods used for scoring must comply with TIB's methodology. If scores submitted by the city are substantially different than the TIB pavement scores, the difference will be resolved through an on-site review coordinated between TIB and city staff.
(1) Application phase - The city shall submit an application form as well as documentation showing route and treatment plan.
(2) Design and construction phase - TIB will provide documents for the city to sign and return. The city must submit the following agreements where utilized:
(a) Fuel tax agreement (except if services are provided by WSDOT).
(b) Rights of entry agreement (if applicable).
(c) Consultant agreement (if applicable).
If pavement services will be provided through WSDOT, TIB will maintain the task order agreement and subsequent amendments.
(3) Project closeout phase - All necessary project cost documentation must be received prior to final payment.

(a) If the city assessed valuation is greater than five hundred million, a match of ten percent will be contributed.
(b) If the city assessed valuation is from one hundred million to five hundred million, a five percent match will be contributed.
(2) If the city assessed valuation is under one hundred million, no cash match is necessary.
(3) Match is not expected or accepted if the construction services will be provided to the city by WSDOT.
(4) All in-kind contributions must relate directly to the project and are limited to time, material, or real property donated to the agency to fulfill project requirements. In-kind match may include:
