Fiscal Year 2022 Airport Maintenance Program
July 6, 2021
July 20, 2021
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 Virginia airports to receive up to $100,000 in state aid on an annual basis.
Eligible maintenance activities for use of State Airport Maintenance funds include scheduled and unscheduled repairs that are not performed each quarter. State maintenance funds can also be used to finance 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 the replacement of grounds equipment.
During Fiscal Year 2021, state airport maintenance funds were used to purchase a new dump truck and snow plow, lighting upgrades for the terminal ramp and Taxiway A lighting repairs. For FY2022, the airport intends to use available airport maintenance funds to complete scheduled pavement repairs for automobile parking lots, the primary runway and taxiways. In addition, it is anticipated funding may also be used for unscheduled repairs.
It is recommended that City Council approve an Ordinance amending the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Appropriation Ordinance to provide for Virginia Department of Aviation Airport Maintenance funds and for the local share appropriating the same.
