AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 26, 2011

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a Supplemental Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for funding for the Taxiway A Realignment Project at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Supplemental Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).

 

Analysis:

The project to extend runway 13/31 originally included the removal of the jog in Taxiway A.  However, at the time construction took place, the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) would not issue a permit for the Taxiway A work because of the need to determine mitigation requirement.  SJRWMD has now issued the permit for this area and work to realign the taxiway can move forward.

 

This portion of the project includes permitting, mitigation, and clearing, filling and grading of the existing wetland area.  The attached JPA from FDOT will provide funding for 2.5% of the related costs.  The remaining expenses will be paid with grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (95%) and the City of Leesburg (2.5%).  The construction for the new segment of Taxiway A will occur at a later date and additional funding will be obtained at that time.

 

Options:

1.  Approve Supplemental JPA with FDOT for the Taxiway A Realignment project; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Approval of the Supplemental JPA will result in an increase of funding from FDOT of $10,077 and a corresponding decrease in funding from the City of $10,077.  Project budget does not change; however, the City reduces its required grant match by $10,077.
