Staff recommends approval of the Joint
Participation Agreement (JPA) with FDOT for funding to
the existing general aviation ramp area
surface of the General Aviation Ramp Area was last coated in 1984 and is now
exhibiting light to medium cracking due to years of exposure to sun and
rainwater. If the ramp is not sealed, it
will have to be rehabbed at an estimated cost of $2.50 per square foot. It will cost approximately $0.68 per square
foot to seal the ramp with a specialized coating known as GRIPFLEX
is a Federal Aviation Administration approved application for ramp
areas, taxiways and runways. Over coating
the ramp at this time will extend its life by 5-7 years.
The attached JPA from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is for funding in the amount of $200,000.00 with 80% being provided by FDOT ($160,000) and the City providing matching funds of 20% ($40,000). This will provide for the sealing and restriping of the general aviation ramp area including design, engineering and construction.
1. Approve the JPA between FDOT and the City of Leesburg
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
This project is included in the FY 2005-2006 airport budget in the amount of $150,000.00. Staff has negotiated a price reduction with the sole-source provider of GRIPFLEX, and believes the current budget provides sufficient funding to complete this project. Any unused grant funds will be returned to FDOT.
