FAA agreement on council agenda today
NEW ULM – The New Ulm City Council will consider an agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration to have the FAA conduct a flight inspection of a couple of systems that are part of the New Ulm Municipal Airport’s runway extension.
Improvements to the runway included the installation of a medium intensity approach lighting system and a precision approach path indicator system.
The FAA must perform a flight inspection to officially certify and authorize their use.
The city will be required to pay $6,099.24 as an advance payment for the inspection, but it will be reimbursed for 90 percent of the actual cost as part of the State and Federal Airport Grant process.
The council will also authorize the application for federal funding to fund a Valley Street reconstruction project from 12th South Street to 20th South Street. Through the Area Transportation Improvement Program, the city has, in the past, received up to 80 percent of the eligible project cost for one city project each fiscal year, up to a maximum of $1.38 million.
The Council meets at 5 p.m. today at the council chambers in New Ulm City Hall.
