#18-FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION GRANT FOR ALAMO AIRPORT Grants Administrator Shawn Frehner presented this item. This item concerns the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grant application for Phase I construction of the Alamo Airport landing field in the amount of $3,325,000.00. This grant has been signed by Commissioner Ed as it had a deadline prior to this Commission. The match requirement is $166,000. RTC has funding set aside and Wendy Rudder is donating all of her time. Shawn’s time will go towards the match as well. NDOT will be providing funding towards the airport improvements. The match will not come out of county funds, other than the salary of the grants administrator. Wendy hopes that RTC will provide $63,000 for paving the road to the airport; this is part of the match. By applying, it doesn’t mean we are accepting the grant; this is to “hold our place in line”. The Air Force has agreed to this. Phase I includes fencing of the property; this is the first task that will be completed. Paul D. made a motion to approve; seconded by Ed. All voted in favor.
