Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to approve an amended grant contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation-Office of Aeronautics (MDOT-Aero) in the amount of $17,000.00 for the Gate and Fencing Project at the Ann Arbor Municipal Airport. The original grant agreement was in the amount of $157,895.00 and the amended total would be $174,895.00.

The grant amount amendment of $17,000.00 is comprised of $16,150.00 in federal funds, $425.00 in state funds and $425.00 in airport matching funds. The airport’s share of this grant is included in the airport’s current operating budget. All funding (local, state and federal) for this project will come from fees paid by users of aviation industry services. The grant is administered by MDOT-Aero.

In May 2013, City Council approved the Gate and Fencing Project with the understanding that the costs that exceeded the initial grant amount would come from the airport operating budget if additional grant funds were unavailable. MDOT-Aero determined that the additional project costs were eligible and are providing grant funding through this amendment. The project was completed in October 2013.
