City Council Regular Meeting
FY 2020 Airport Maintenance Program
First Reading: 07/02/2019
Final Adoption: 07/16/2019
The Virginia Department of Aviation provides airport maintenance funding to assist airports with preserving facilities in a safe and economical operating condition. Maintenance grant funding will allow individual Virginia airports to receive up to $100,000 in state aid each year. Eligible maintenance activities include scheduled and unscheduled repairs that are not performed each quarter. State maintenance funds can also be used to obtain grounds equipment. Funding levels vary for airport maintenance program activities relative to state policy. Projects that support facility preservation such as crack sealing are funded at higher levels compared to projects that are related to revenue generating facilities or involve the replacement of grounds equipment including mowers and tractors. City Council approval is requested to appropriate state airport maintenance funds for Fiscal Year 2020 to receive state funds for this grant program.
During Fiscal Year 2019 state airport maintenance funds were primarily used to complete heating and air conditioning upgrades in the south side of the terminal building including the large conference room. In addition, maintenance funds were used to crack seal a large section of the terminal apron, seal coat the terminal parking lot area, complete bathroom renovations and obtain a snow plow for a pickup truck. For Fiscal Year 2020 state aviation maintenance funds would be used to purchase a pickup truck and snow plow, grounds equipment, replace an air handler located in the terminal building and complete unscheduled repairs.
It is recommended that City Council approve an Ordinance amending the Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Appropriation Ordinance to provide for Virginia Department of Aviation Airport Maintenance funds and for the local share appropriating the same.
