COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 090167

 

Authorizing the Director of Aviation to submit a preliminary application to the FAA for participation of KCI and Downtown Airports in the Airport Privatization Pilot Program.

 

WHEREAS, the City of Kansas City, Missouri (the City) is a constitutionally chartered political subdivision of the State of Missouri; and

 

WHEREAS, the City owns and operates Kansas City International Airport situated in Kansas City, Platte County, Missouri (KCI) and Charles B Wheeler Downtown Airport (Downtown Airport) situated in Kansas City, Clay County, Missouri; and

 

WHEREAS, the Airport Privatization Pilot Program, 49 U.S.C. Section 47134 (Program), authorizes the transfer of up to five publically-owned airports to private operators and authorizes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to grant public airport owners like the City an exemption to use proceeds from such transfers for non-airport purposes; and

 

WHEREAS, the Program authorizes participation by one large hub airport such as Midway Airport (for which a preliminary application has been filed), three medium hub airports such as KCI and one general aviation airport such as Downtown Airport; and

 

WHEREAS, the Program, among other things, allows a private operator to earn reasonable compensation; subjects a private operator to all FAA oversight and all federal laws, rules and regulations; and requires that any collective bargaining agreement that covers employees of the airport in effect on the date of the sale or lease will not be terminated by the sale or lease; and

 

WHEREAS, participation in the Program requires a Preliminary Application to the FAA, public solicitation for a private operator and a Final Application to the FAA; and

 

WHEREAS, the City desires to submit two Preliminary Applications to the FAA, one for the privatization of KCI by lease to a private operator; and one for the privatization of Downtown Airport by lease or sale to a private operator; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Director of Aviation is hereby authorized to (i) submit a Preliminary Application to the Federal Aviation Administration for participation of Kansas City International Airport in the Airport Privatization Pilot Program, 49 U.S.C.
