AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           August 25, 2008

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of a Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for the design of the overlay for Runway 3-21 and the associated taxiways

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends acceptance of the Joint Participation Agreement for the Design of the Overlay for Runway 3-21 and Taxiways B, K and J at Leesburg International Airport.

 

Analysis:

The pavement of runway 3-21 was last overlaid in the early eighties.  A recent pavement study completed by the Florida Department of Transportation found this runway to be in fair to poor condition and recommended that it be overlaid in 2008.  The attached Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) is for the design of this project.  The project includes runway 3-21 and taxiways B, K & J.  The design will be completed during FY 2008/09.

 

After the design is completed and approved, construction (overlay) is expected to take place during FY 2009/10.  Due to budgetary constraints, the construction portion of the project was delayed one year.  The overlay project is currently included in the Capital Improvement Plan for FY 2009/10.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Joint Participation Agreement; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funding for the design portion of this project was budgeted in fiscal year 06/07 and has been rolled forward.  The total of the JPA for the design phase is $225,000.00.  The funding breakdown is as follows:
