AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           November 10, 2008

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with Saulnier Enterprises DBA Signal Connections for maintenance and repair of the non-directional beacon at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the agreement with Saulnier Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a Signal Connections.

 

Analysis:

The Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) at Leesburg International Airport is a navigational aid, and is also used when pilots make non-precision instrument approaches to land on Runway – 31 during periods of inclement weather. It is critical that the NDB be properly maintained and licensed annually.  If the NDB fails, notification to the Federal Aviation Administration in Atlanta, Georgia is required, and a NOTAM (Notice to Airman) is issued to alert pilots.

 

This contract represents the sixth year the City has engaged Saulnier Enterprises, Inc. to maintain and license the NDB.  Mr. Saulnier maintains the proper amount of insurance, is licensed by the FCC to perform this type of work, and is responsive to the airport’s needs.

 

The effective date of this contract is October 1, 2008, expiring on September 30, 2009.  The annual contract amount of $4,200.00 has remained unchanged for the last four years.

 

Options:

 

1.  Approve the agreement with Saulnier Enterprises Inc. d/b/a Signal Connections; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

 

The cost associated with the standard service and repairs section in this contract is $4,200.00 annually.  These funds are included in the airport budget for FY 08/09.
