ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE CITY SERVICE DIRECTOR TO SUBMIT A PRE-APPLICATION FOR 2018 FAA GRANT FUNDING AND OHIO MATCHING GRANT FUNDING FOR THE MARION MUNICIPAL AIRPORT AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY

WHEREAS, The City of Marion will apply for Grant known as AIP 3-39-0050-026-2018, Project 26 in 2018 totaling approximately $823,520.00.

WHEREAS, FAA Grants 2013-2017 and proposed 2018 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 Ohio 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 51%, the State 5% of FAA’s share and The City of Marion will pay for administrative offices and conference room, approximately 49%.  The City of Marion has money from the sale of land in the Airport Industrial Park since 2013 earmarked to pay City of Marion’s portion of New Terminal Building Construction.  These percentages will be refined when we receive Architectural Firm, GPD Group’s final submission. 

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