From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Supplemental Joint Participation Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for additional funding at the Leesburg International Airport for runway extension

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Supplemental Joint Participation Agreement.

 

Analysis:

The City Commission approved a Federal Aviation Administration grant of $968,872.00 September 8, 2008.  This funding will be used to mitigate 12.94 acres of wetland to allow construction of Phases II and III of the runway 13/31 extension project.  The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is providing   additional funds as a match for this grant.

 

The attached Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) is a supplement to an initial JPA for $119,840.00.  The initial amount was used toward mitigation and construction costs for Phase I of the runway extension project.  The attached supplement for $132,663.00 will be used for mitigation and construction costs for Phases II and III of this project.  This supplement increases FDOT’s funding for this project to a total of $252,743.00.  FDOT based their funding under this agreement on the estimated total project cost for all three phases of $10,109,724.00. 

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Supplemental Joint Participation Agreement; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funding for Phases II and III of the Runway 13/31 Extension Project is a combination of a rollover of $1,467,855 from FY 2007-08 and $3,837,465 included in the FY 2008-09 Airport Budget as part of the Capital Projects Fund.
