Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve a grant contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation-Office of Aeronautics (MDOT-Aero) in the amount of $27,915.00 to reimburse the City for funds paid to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under reimbursement agreement AJW-FN-CSA-18-GL-002234.
