SUBJECT:

Grant Submittal to Texas Department of Transportation for a Master Plan Study for Stinson Municipal Airport


SUMMARY:

This Ordinance approves the submittal of a grant application to the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) in the amount of $300,000.00 for a Master Plan for the Stinson Municipal Airport.

This action will appropriate the City's match of $30,000.00 and authorize execution of all necessary grant documents.

Through the Master Plan process, the selected consultant will review the existing conditions, facility requirements and forecasted growth for Stinson and recommend development alternatives.

As the agent, TXDOT will administer the consultant selection process and negotiate fees with the selected firm; execute all contracts; review and approve plans; pay the consultant's invoices; supervise and direct all work; coordinate the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) review of the Airport Layout Plan; and, administer the federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. As such, TXDOT must receive the matching funds prior to implementation of the various work efforts.
