Type of Action Requested: Ordinance

SUBJECT:
Request Authorization to apply for and accept grant funding from the Arizona Department of Transportation – Aeronautics Division. 
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends the Mayor and City Council authorize the City Manager to apply for and accept grant funding from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), Aeronautics Division for Runway 05/23 and connector taxiway pavement preservation in an amount not to exceed $725,000 and to execute all grant & contract documents, disburse funds and perform necessary budget transfers.
 
DISCUSSION:
The Aeronautics Group, part of ADOT's Multimodal Planning Division, develops the Five-Year Airport Capital Improvement Program (ACIP). The Program provides for state-funded grants and approves those projects for state-local funding that have met the State Transportation Board's qualifying priority rating.  State funds come mainly from flight property tax, aircraft lieu tax, and aviation fuel tax. The Airport Capital Improvement Program development process allocates money from the State Aviation Fund and distributes these funds across three major categories: Design/Construction, Planning, and Land Acquisition. The State Transportation Board approves this distribution annually.
 
The Airport is aware that budgets are limited, and available alternate funding sources should be sought when possible. The Casa Grande Municipal Airport is eligible for funds under the ACIP in the amount of $725,000. These funds will assist the Airport in the completion of much-needed pavement preservation on the Airports runway and connector taxiways.
FISCAL IMPACT:
The Airport is requesting authorization to apply for and accept grant funds in an amount not to exceed $725,000. If authorized, the Airport requests approval to execute all grant and contract documents, disburse funds and perform necessary budget transfers.
 
There is a 10% fund match requirement for this grant. Upon approval, necessary transfers will occur within the Airport Grants fund to establish the required spending authority of $75,500 in local funds for the match. 
ALTERNATIVES:
Deny or Modify Request.
