2016-74 Approp. Ord. to Airport Improvement Fund


WHEREAS, The City of Marion will apply for Grant known as AIP 3-39-0050-025-2017, Project 25 in 2017 totaling $77,400.00.

WHEREAS, FAA Grants 2013-2016 and proposed 2017 have all have been working towards Airport Improvements necessary for the future success of our Airport and to ensure The City of Marion’s eligibility for New Airport Terminal Building construction in 2018.   The FAA and State Division of Aviation require all pavement issues to be completed before they will consider funding a New Terminal Building.   The funding for New Terminal Building construction will be as such:

The FAA will pay for public use of New Terminal Building Project, approximately 60%, the State 5%, and The City of Marion will pay for administrative offices and conference room, approximately 35%. The City of Marion has money from sale of land in the Airport Industrial Park since 2013 earmarked to pay City of Marion’s portion of New Terminal Building Construction.

WHEREAS, The Marion Municipal Airport Economical Impact Study done by the State of Ohio, Division of Aviation in 2014, has our Airport impacting Marion County by 9.2 million dollars. Having a new Terminal Building replacing the existing 1950 terminal building and all other improvements taking place, we hope to be an even better attraction to New Companies focusing on Marion for their new location.

            BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the City of Marion, Marion, County, Ohio:

            Section 1.        That City Auditor is authorized to appropriate funds in the amount of $10,000.00 to Airport Improvement Fund 408.4007.5443 for FAA Grant AIP 3-39-0050-025-2017, Project 25. The FAA required preliminary new and old Airport Terminal Building studies to be complete in 2016 by Airport Engineering Consultant, Don Yager of GA Consultants, before Terminal Building would be considered in 2017 Architectural Work and Construction in 2018. This amount will be reimbursed from the FAA in 2017.

            Section 2.        The FAA approximate 60% share will be $45,107.00, State 5% share $2,506.00 and Marion City approximate 35% share will be $29,787.00.
