AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           December 13, 2010

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for funding related to the Air Navigation Approach Survey for Runway 13/31 at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Joint Participation Agreement for funding related to the Air Navigation Approach Survey for Runway 13/31.

 

Analysis:

The City accepted a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in July 2008 to conduct an air navigation approach survey for runway 13/31.  The survey is needed to establish the new precision approach because of  the increased length of this runway.  The survey will also identify any objects located in the runway object-free zone. 

 

The cost of the survey performed by Hanson Professional Services, Inc. is $102,205.00.  The FAA grant agreement allows for payment of 95% of that amount.  Due to a communication error between staff and the FDOT, a JPA from FDOT was not issued for their standard 2.5% portion of funding until the project was well underway.  FDOT rules stipulate that no work can be done until their JPA is fully executed.  As a result, FDOT is now obligated to only pay a percentage of the work remaining on the project rather than the entire project cost.  Therefore, the City’s funding obligation for this project will include the usual 2.5% match ($2,555.13) plus an additional amount that FDOT will not cover ($1,635.12).

 

Options:

1.     Approve the JPA with FDOT for funding for the air navigation approach survey; or

2.     Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 


Fiscal Impact:

Funding for this project was included in the FY 09/10 budget and will be rolled over to the current Fiscal Year.  Breakdown of project costs is as follows:

Funding Source

 

FAA (95%)

$  97,094.75

FDOT (.9%)

$       920.00

City (4.10%)

$    4,190.25

Total

$102,205.00
