Title

From the Director, Department of Transportation and Public Works, and the Airport Director, requesting authorization to amend Airport Agreement No. GA-1599 to include a five-year extension with an additional five-year option with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) to provide services at the Milwaukee Airport Rail Station.

 

Body

POLICY

County Board approval is required to amend an agreement between Milwaukee County and the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

BACKGROUND

On October 2, 2006, Milwaukee County entered into Airport Agreement No. GA-1599 with the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WISDOT) to provide operational services at the Milwaukee Airport Rail Station.  The station is owned by the State.  General Mitchell Inter-national Airport provides shuttle service between the station and the airport terminal, custodial services, security, and minor maintenance. WISDOT provides all other maintenance, insurance and utilities for the station.  Paragraph No. 2 of Airport Agreement No. GA-1599 entitled Agreement Term, “allows either or both parties of the agreement to re-open the agreement during the term of the agreement to modify the existing clauses or the entire agreement.”  Both parties have requested that the current agreement be amended to provide for an additional term of five (5) years commencing October 1, 2011 and ending September 30, 2016, and an additional term of five (5) years (ending 2021), upon mutual consent of both parties.

RECOMMENDATION

Airport staff recommends County Board approval of Amendment No. 1 to Airport Agreement No. GA-1599 between Milwaukee County and WISDOT, to provide for a five year extension, with an additional five year option.  All other terms and conditions of the agreement remain the same.

FISCAL NOTE

$1,022,763 is an estimated projection of rail station parking revenue for the five (5) year period covering 2011 thru 2016.  These revenues are included in the annual Airport budget and will have no fiscal effect on the tax levy of Milwaukee County.
