City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 08/09/2018  
Subject:    FY 2019 Airport Maintenance Program
From: Marc Adelman

First Reading:     07/17/2018
Final Adoption:   08/09/2018
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 airports to receive up to $100,000 in state aid each year.  Eligible maintenance activities are defined as 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 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 2019 in order to receive state funds for this grant program.
During Fiscal Year 2018, state airport maintenance funds were primarily used to complete terminal building improvements including heating and air conditioning modifications for the north side of the terminal.  For Fiscal Year 2019, state aviation maintenance funds would be used to complete heating and air conditioning modifications for the south side of the terminal, obtain a snow plow for a pickup truck, replacement parts and unscheduled repairs.  The state has identified that 28.1% of the total project cost for terminal building improvements could be financed through the airport maintenance program.  A total of $150,000 in capital improvement funds were appropriated to complete heating and air conditioning modifications for the terminal building during FY 2019.  The attached appropriation ordinance reflects that an additional $58,623 in funding could be applied towards this project if needed, relative to bids received this fall.
It is recommended that City Council approve an Ordinance Amending the Fiscal Year 2019 Budget Appropriation Ordinance to provide for Virginia Department of Aviation Airport Maintenance funds and for the local share appropriating the same.
