AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

 

Meeting Date:           June 13, 2011

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Joint Participation Agreement with Florida Department of Transportation for funding related to assessment, design, and bidding services for installation of security fencing at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends acceptance of the Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for funding related to assessment, design and bidding services for installation of security fencing at Leesburg International Airport

 

Analysis:

Leesburg International Airport has not added any additional security fencing in the last fifteen years and a significant amount of the current fencing is old and inadequate.  Additionally, there are areas on the east and south sides of the airport where security can easily be breached due to a lack of fencing.  Additional fencing will make the airport more secure and comply with requirements of the Department of Homeland Security.

 

This JPA provides the funding necessary to conduct the assessment, design, and bidding services to update the airport security fencing.  Staff anticipates installation of the fence will be completed in Fiscal Year 11/12 when funding becomes available from FDOT.

 

The purpose of this assessment is to determine the following:

  1. Type and size of fencing that should be used to secure the airport.
  2. Optimum location for perimeter fencing.
  3. Optimum location for fencing that separates airside from non-airside.
  4. Fencing that meets Transportation Security Administration, FAA, and FDOT requirements.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the JPA with FDOT for the security fencing project; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 


Fiscal Impact

This project is fully funded by FDOT.  However, the funding for this project was not anticipated,  and is not budgeted  in this fiscal year.  A budget adjustment will be necessary to amend the capital projects airport budget to reflect the increase in grant funds of $72,982.00.
