Information
RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the execution of Amendment No. 1 to Project ID M1716ROBS with the Texas Department of Transportation for the Routine Airport Maintenance Program.
BACKGROUND
In 1996, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Aviation Division began an annual Routine Airport Maintenance Program (RAMP) with five pilot TxDOT districts. The program was designed to assist communities with maintenance programs by offering state financial assistance. The initial program was a success and has expanded to allow all publicly owned/operated airports, including non-hub primary commercial service airports, in the Texas Airport System Plan (TASP) to participate in the current program maximum of $50,000 in state funds per airport per year.
DISCUSSION
On September 14, 2016, the Commissioners Court approved a contract with the TxDOT for the RAMP grant. Eligible activities under the RAMP grant include crack sealing, herbiciding, striping, marking, and other similar services. Services have been expanded to include other items such as airport lighting and maintenance, airport entrance road construction, pilot lounges, environmental compliance, and automated weather observing system (AWOS) maintenance.

Under the grant contract, Nueces County will be reimbursed up to 50% of eligible project costs, or $30,000, whichever is less, per fiscal year and subject to availability of state appropriations.

Amendment No. 1 increases the amount eligible for reimbursement from $30,000 to $50,000. All other provisions in the original grant contract remain the same.
