Section 4: District’s Monitoring of LPA AcquisitionAnchor: #i1007312
Federal regulations require TxDOT to document that ROW procured by political subdivisions was acquired in accordance with Title III of the Uniform Act. This requirement does not in any way relieve the LPAs of the need to have complete documentation in their files; however, the Districts will obtain and maintain in their files a certification of compliance containing the following clause and signed by the LPA:
“. .certify that right of way for________________ has been acquired according to policies of the Texas Department of Transportation and in accordance with applicable Federal and State laws governing the acquisition policies for acquiring real property. Documentation for compliance with these requirements is available for audit in our files. “
A standard form for this certification has not been printed because some LPAs may prefer to furnish it in the form of a resolution while others may wish to have it signed by a LPA official. Certificates are required for each project.
