Proposed Committee Motion:

I move to recommend to the City Council for approval an Ordinance approving a Coronavirus Relief Grant Program Agreement for airport operational and maintenance expenses between the City of Lee's Summit, Missouri, and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission in the amount of $23,000.00 and authorizing the Mayor to execute an agreement for the same.

 

Background:

The purpose of this Agreement is to provide Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations, CRRSA Act financial assistance to the City under the State Block Grant Program and to maintain safe and efficient airport operations. Funds provided under this Agreement must only be used for purposes directly related to the airport. Such purposes can include the reimbursement of an airport’s operational and maintenance expenses or debt service payments. CARES Act Airport Grants may be used to reimburse airport operational and maintenance expenses directly related to the Airport incurred no earlier than January 20, 2020. CARES Act Airport Grants also may be used to reimburse a City’s payment of debt service where such payments occur on or after December 27, 2020. Funds provided under the Agreement will be governed by the same principles that govern "airport revenue". New airport development projects not directly related to combating the spread of pathogens and approved by MoDOT on behalf of the FAA for such purposes may not be funded with this Agreement.
