Summary:

Submitting a new PFC application will ensure that PIE can continue imposing a $4.50 PFC on each enplanement and can continue collection to fund PFC eligible improvements to PIE’s terminal and airfield.

 

Background/Explanation:

On December 11, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approved Resolution 18-102 which authorized PIE to submit an application to the FAA for the imposition and collection of a new PFC fee in the amount of $13,574,684.00 (Legistar #18-1778A).  After the Board approved this application in the amount of $13,574,684.00, the FAA requested that PIE phase the application into three separate applications, which equal the same dollar amount.

The first application (#4) will be in the amount of $11,390,230.00, the second application (#5) will be in the amount of $1,434,454.00, and the third application (#6) will be in the amount of $750,000.00.   

Authority for the County Administrator to sign these applications is by ratification.  Due to exigent circumstances, the County Administrator signed these applications in order to expedite processing and meet the FAA’s deadline.  This ratification will be presented to the Board on February 5, 2019.

 

Fiscal Impact:

The total PFC revenue to be collected in the new applications remained the same total of $13,574,684.00 as approved by the Board on December 11, 2018. The expiration date for these applications is anticipated on or about October 1, 2023 based on historical collections. This revenue will be included in the FY20 CIP budget development process.
