Subject: Resolution authorizing a Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for grant funding for the Construct Airfield Marking Project at Leesburg International Airport
Staff recommends approval of the Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for funding for the Construct Airfield Marking Project at Leesburg International Airport and approval of the purchase amount of $46,916.56 to Hi-Lite Markings, Inc. to complete the striping work.
Leesburg International Airport currently has a mixture of airfield markings commonly known as striping. Roughly one half of the striping meets Federal Aviation Administration standards. The areas of new construction such as the runway 13/31 extension meet standards while older areas including taxiways do not. Striping is an integral part of the process that directs pilots to locations on the airport. It alerts pilots where aircraft movement is allowed or not allowed and plays an important role in the prevention of runway and taxiway incursions.
FDOT has established a statewide contract with Hi-Lite Markings, Inc. to perform striping on General Aviation and Commercial Aviation Airports. The contract allows for a low cost price and assures that all striping is completed to FDOT and FAA standards. Hi-Lite Markings, Inc. has already surveyed Leesburg International Airport and the cost of re-striping will be $46,916.00. This JPA will provide 80% of the project cost. The remaining 20% will be paid by the City of Leesburg.
1. Approve the JPA from FDOT for the Airfield Marking Project; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Funding for this project is included in the airport budget. The cost breakdown is as follows:
