County to consider airport grant

by Carol Thompson

When the Oswego County Legislature meets tomorrow, one item on the agenda is the consideration of the acceptance of a grant offer for the design phase of aircraft deicing equipment acquisition and collection tank installation at the county airport.

The total design cost is estimated at $198,000, according to an informational memorandum attached to the resolution.

The highway department will receive 90-percent federal funding in the amount of $178,200 and five-percent state funding in the amount of $9,900 for the project. The local share will be $9,900.

The resolution recommends entering into an agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration to accept the grant offer.

The legislature will also consider the transfer of $30,000 to pay for assessment and survey work at the former county jail.  The funds will be used to pay for Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the environmental assessments and surveys of possible hazards such as asbestos.
