RE: Airport Parking Lot – Asphalt Repair
The airport parking lot was originally paved during terminal construction in 1993. While performing the recent concrete replacement work at the front entrance we observed that the asphalt along the front curb area has settled and is creating drainage problems. Additionally the existing asphalt in this area is deteriorating, which if not addressed will create significant drainage and maintenance problems.
Peninsula Asphalt Paving is currently working for PW repairing numerous asphalt areas that have been necessitated by our water, sewer and roadway repairs which have taken place since this past winter.
I requested a quote from Peninsula Asphalt Paving to provide the asphalt repair at the Airport parking lot. This works will consist of an area approximately 170’ in length x 12’ in width (2040 square feet) along the entire front curbed area at a unit price of $3.25/square foot totaling $6,630.00.
Presently our operating budget contains a balance of
• 100.149.5202 Operating Supplies: $2,852.11
• 100.149.5208 Equipment Maintenance.: $3,207.41
• 100.149.5210 Professional Services.: $3,512.70
The Airport Reserve Account balance is presently $63,652.00.
The City Council pass an ordinance amending the 2012 operating budget by appropriating up to $7,000 from the Airport Reserve Account for pavement repair in the Airport Terminal parking lot.
