Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Grant to Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) for Rehabilitation of Taxiways at Orlando Executive Airport

On July 30, 2014, GOAA submitted a grant application to the FAA  to fund four separate contracts in an anticipated grant amount of $2,563,713 for Rehabilitation of Taxiways - Phase 1 (Construction) at Orlando Executive Airport. GOAA has requested that the City, as the grant sponsor on behalf of GOAA, pre-accept the grant with pre-authorization for the Mayor and City Clerk to sign the grant and related grant documents. Such pre-acceptance and pre-authorization will allow for the grant to be executed immediately upon receipt from the FAA and within the time frame required for acceptance. Due to the schedules for City Council and GIOAA Board meetings, and the limited time authorized for funding of grants at the end of the fiscal year of the Federal government, it is necessary to pre-accept the grant to avoid the potential to lose the funding.  A copy of the grant application is attached.   

Fiscal & Efficiency Data: N/A

Recommended Action:
Pre-accept the grant and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute (1) the grant upon award by the FAA, substantially in the form and containing terms and conditions consistent with customary FAA grants, (2) related grant documents and contracts, all upon review and approval of the City Attorney's Office, and conditioned upon GOAA's compliance with all applicable grant requirements.

Agenda Item attachment(s) on file in the City Clerks Office.

Note: All agenda items must be in the City Clerk's office by Noon Friday, six(6) business days prior to the regular Monday City Council meeting.
