Staff recommends approval of the Supplemental Joint Participation Agreement.
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.
