The Jefferson City Council will consider work to the Jefferson City Memorial Airport during its Monday meeting.

A bill would approve both acceptance of a partial matching grant and project bid for runway maintenance and repair work for the aircraft parking area.

The grant comes through the Missouri Department of Transportation for $415,524, according to council documents.

It requires a 10 percent matching funds for $38,590, which would come out of funds from the city's half-cent capital improvement sales tax.

Staff is recommending the council award the bid to Parking Lot Maintenance LLC of Lake St. Louis for $454,115. It is the lowest of five bids.
