Item No: 4.C.4
Meeting Date: February 27, 2012
From: Charlie Weller, Airport Manager
Subject: Resolution authorizing a Tower Operating Agreement between the Federal Aviation Administration and the City of Leesburg, Leesburg International Airport
Staff recommends approval of the Tower Operating Agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Before the air traffic control tower (ATCT) at Leesburg International Airport opened in October, 2006, the City signed a Contract Airport Traffic Control Tower Operating Agreement with the FAA. The FAA has recently updated their tower agreement document and is requesting that all sponsor owned FAA contract towers update their contracts. The ATCT at Leesburg International meets or exceeds all of the requirements as outlined in the attached agreement. Please note that staffing costs related to the ATCT are paid in full by the FAA.
1. Approve the Tower Operating Agreement with the FAA; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
Approval of this agreement will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
