AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 22, 2007

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing US Customs and Border Protection Overtime Fee to Inspect and Clear an Aircraft at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the overtime fee increase. 

 

Analysis:

In September 2005, the City Commission approved Resolution 7444 which states the charges for the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer to inspect and clear aircraft at Leesburg International Airport. This Resolution specifies the standard fees and overtime fee that can be charged for aircraft inspection and clearance.

 

Recently, the airport’s CBP Officer advised that his salary has increased since he was originally assigned to Leesburg International Airport.  He recommended that the overtime fee that is charged for his services should be increased to keep pace with his actual pay rate.  The proposed fee schedule does not revise the standard fees – only the overtime fee that is charged when a CBP officer is requested to be on-site outside of normal working hours.

 

The overtime fee is currently $110.00.  This amount is charged in addition to the standard fee for each particular type of aircraft.  Staff proposes to increase the overtime fee from $110.00 to $140.00.  The increased amount will more accurately reflect the salary for the existing CBP officer.  The increase will be effective November 1, 2007.

 

The Airport Advisory Board discussed this item at their September 12, 2007 meeting and recommended approval.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the overtime fee increase.

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 


 

Fiscal Impact

Approval of the new overtime fee will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg
