Each year, the City of Fort Worth receives a grant offer from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to provide needed routine maintenance and capital projects at Fort Worth Alliance Airport (Alliance Airport) with a total eligibility amount up to $100,000.00. This grant requires a 50 percent match of eligible project costs or up to the amount of $50,000.00, whichever is less. Alliance Air Services, the company that manages Alliance Airport, reimburses the City of Fort Worth for 50 percent of eligible costs or up to the amount of $50,000.00, whichever is less. One of the projects that was paid for by the RAMP grant was the installation of security fencing at the Alliance Control Tower. Because the Aviation Department is directly responsible for paying for expenses related to the Control Tower, we did not seek reimbursement from Alliance Air Services for the cost of the improvements.This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
This M&C is necessary to provide for 50 percent of the projects costs, which is considered a part of the City's grant match.
Alliance Airport is located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 7.
