AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           November 13, 2007

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving Supplemental Agreement No. 3 with  the Federal Aviation Administration  related to the Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of Supplemental Agreement No. 3 with the Federal Aviation Administration regarding the back-up power supply for the ASOS at Leesburg International Airport.

 

Analysis:

The Federal Aviation Administration owns an Automated Surface Observing System (weather system also known as ASOS) at Leesburg International Airport.  The system is part of the National Weather Service system.  Congress has mandated the system be equipped with a generator as a back-up power supply.  The purpose of Supplemental Agreement No. 3 is to allow the Federal Government or its contractor access to the electrical vault to install a backup generator for the ASOS.

 

Please note  the ASOS at Leesburg International Airport is already hard wired to the City’s emergency backup generator.  This was completed when the system was relocated from the old Continental Jet Port building, at the west end of the airport, to the electrical vault on Echo Drive.  Therefore, it may not be necessary to install an additional backup generator.  However, staff recommends this agreement be approved in the event the Federal Government wishes to provide its own emergency power back up source.

 

Options:

1. Approve Supplemental Agreement No. 3 with the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Approval of this agreement will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
