RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider adoption of a resolution authorizing the County Judge to execute all contracts, agreements and documents related to the implementation of improvements to the Nueces County Airport.
BACKGROUND
The Aviation Capital Improvement Program (ACIP) is a tentative three-year schedule of federal and state airport development projects. The ACIP is updated continually and submitted for Transportation Commission approval annually. TxDOT regularly receives input from sponsors regarding their airport needs and plans. This information is used to refine and update the ACIP.
DISCUSSION
TxDOT’s FY 2014 ACIP schedule includes the Nueces County Airport. The general description of the project is described as: rehabilitation and marking of runway, taxiways, and turnarounds; installation of game fence and Northeast perimeter gates; rehabilitation of apron and hangar access taxiways; construction of T-hangars and hangar access pavement; and contingencies, project administration and engineering.  This is a revision from the initial project schedule approved by the Court in March, 2012.  The revised schedule includes an additional $450,000 for construction of T-hangars, additional $50,000 in contingency funds and $50,000 for the design of the T-hangars.  This increases the County's 10 percent cost share by $55,000.

Total project costs are estimated to be $1,420,000, and Nueces County will be responsible for 10% of the total project costs, currently estimated to be $142,000. If awarded, the County will receive a contract for construction and another for engineering. The request for funding includes a Commissioners Court resolution, Certification of Project Funds (for estimated sponsor share of $142,000), Designation of Sponsor’s Authorized Representative, and Designation of TxDOT for Consultant Selection.
