1.          SUBJECT:        TERMINATION OF LOCAL EMERGENCY: H1N1 INFLUENZA A
                            OUTBREAK (DISTRICTS: ALL)

            OVERVIEW:
            On May 5, 2009 (20) your Board ratified the April 29, 2009 Proclamation of Local
            Emergency issued by the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) acting in his capacity as the
            County Director of Emergency Services. The Proclamation was issued as a result of the
            Governor’s April 28, 2009 proclamation of a state of emergency in California due to
            confirmed cases of H1N1 Influenza A, or swine influenza A virus.

            The Health and Human Services Agency continues to monitor the H1N1 Influenza A
            outbreak in San Diego County. As of the morning of June 1, 2009, there were 212
            confirmed cases in San Diego County. The Agency’s priority for disease surveillance now
            focuses on severe illness or death in order to detect changes in virulence or the
            epidemiological characteristics of the virus. These activities will assist in mitigation efforts
            in particular outbreak settings or within high risk groups. The Agency continues to
            coordinate with the California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease
            Control and Prevention.

            Government Code §8630 requires local governing bodies to review the need for continuing
            the local emergency and to terminate the local emergency at the earliest possible date that
            conditions warrant. This is a request for your Board to find that conditions no longer
            warrant an extension of the local emergency and the local emergency shall be immediately
            terminated.

            FISCAL IMPACT:
            There is no fiscal impact association with this request.

            BUSINESS IMPACT STATEMENT:
            N/A

            RECOMMENDATION:
            CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
            1. Find that there is no longer a need for continuing the April 29, 2009 PROCLAMATION
               OF COUNTYWIDE LOCAL EMERGENCY and the local emergency shall be
               terminated pursuant to Government Code §8630(b).

            2.   Proclaim the termination of the local emergency as set forth in the attached
                 April 29, 2009 PROCLAMATION OF COUNTYWIDE LOCAL EMERGENCY due to
                 the H1N1 Influenza outbreak.

2.          SUBJECT:       COUNTY AIRPORTS – APPLY FOR AND ACCEPT FEDERAL
                           AND STATE GRANT FUNDS, AMEND THE FISCAL YEAR 2008-
                           09 AIRPORT ENTERPRISE FUND SPENDING PLAN, APPROVE
                           GILLESPIE FIELD TAXIWAY RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT
                           (DISTRICTS: 2 AND 5)

            OVERVIEW:
            The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), also known as the
            Economic Stimulus Plan, was approved by both houses of Congress on February 13, 2009,
            and signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009. County Airports submitted a
            grant application and was awarded funding for Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction. The
            grant will fund $2,500,000 of this $2,830,000 project with the balance coming from the
            Airport Enterprise Fund. This is a request to ratify the advertisement and bid for the
            Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction project. This item also includes a request for
            authority to award a construction contract for the project. In addition, this is a request to
            amend the Fiscal Year 2008-09 Airport Enterprise Fund Spending Plan in the amount of
            $2,830,000 for the Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction project.
            This project is using the stimulus funding described above, which came with a very strict
            timeline. To meet that timeline while complying with State Public Contract Code, the
            County has had to move quickly. Therefore, this project was advertised on May 22, 2009.
            Upon Board approval, bids will be opened and a contract awarded to the lowest responsible
            bidder. Construction is scheduled to begin in June 2009 and take three months to complete.
            Board approval is requested to authorize the Director, Department of Public Works, or
            designee to act as agent of the County to apply for and/or amend funding requests and to
            accept grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration and State Division of
            Aeronautics for projects and related work as approved by the Board in the Airport Enterprise
            Fund Fiscal Year 2009-10 Spending Plan. During the year, the County occasionally receives
            grant offers on County projects with very aggressive timelines for claiming the funds.
            Requested authorization will enable County Airports to capture grant funding as it becomes
            available.
            The purpose of the Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction Project is to rehabilitate existing
            taxiways and ancillary facilities. Work shall include activities such as reconstruction of
            selected areas of failed pavement, milling, crack sealing, petromat, shoulder safety and
            adjacent island area stabilization, paving and striping. These activities are intended to
            improve safe and efficient operations for general aviation and Category II jet aircraft at

            Gillespie Field Airport. This project would involve taxiways Alpha and Bravo that serve the
            north/south runway. On June 17, 2009, a companion project to resurface taxiways that serve
            runways Charlie and Delta, which are the east/west runways, will be brought to your Board
            for consideration.

            FISCAL IMPACT:
            Funds for the Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction project request are not included in the
            Fiscal Year 2008-09 Airport Enterprise Fund Spending Plan. If approved, this request will
            increase costs and revenue by $2,830,000. The funding sources are grant revenue from the
            American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ($2,500,000) and fund balance available
            in the Airport Enterprise Fund ($330,000). No additional staff years will be required, and
            there will be no impact to the County General Fund.

            BUSINESS IMPACT STATEMENT:
            During the current economy, construction projects can help keep people working. This
            project will create an estimated 30 construction and engineering jobs for the life of the
            project.

            RECOMMENDATION:
            CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
            1. Find in accordance with Section 15301 of the California Environmental Quality Act
               (CEQA) Guidelines that the proposed action to rehabilitate existing taxiways and
               ancillary facilities with no increase in capacity at Gillespie Field Airport is exempt from
               CEQA review.

            2.   Amend the Fiscal Year 2008-09 Airport Enterprise Fund Spending Plan in the amount
                 of $2,830,000 to provide funding for the Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction project
                 based on unanticipated grant revenue from the American Recovery and Reinvestment
                 Act of 2009 ($2,500,000) and fund balance available ($330,000).

            3.   Ratify action taken by the Director, Department of Purchasing and Contracting, to
                 advertise and bid a contract for the Gillespie Field Taxiway Reconstruction project, and
                 authorize the Director to take any action necessary to award the contract and take such
                 other action as is authorized by Section 401 et seq., of the Administrative Code with
                 respect to contracting for subject public works project.

            4.   Designate the Director, Department of Public Works, as the County Officer responsible
                 for administering the construction contract in accordance with Board Policy F-41,
                 Public Works Construction Contracts.

            5.   Adopt a resolution entitled Resolution of the Board of Supervisors Authorizing
                 Applications and Agreements for Federal and State Funding at Gillespie Field,
                 McClellan-Palomar Airport, Borrego Valley Airport, Fallbrook Community Airpark,
                 and Ramona Airport.

6/08/2009                                                                                            3
            6. Authorize the Director, Department of Public Works, or designee as an agent of the
               County, to submit, negotiate and execute all documents including, but not limited to,
               applications, payment requests, agreements and amendments to the agreements which
               may be necessary to secure and spend federal and State grant funds for County Airport
               projects during Fiscal Year 2009-10.

            ON MOTION of Supervisor Slater-Price, seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board took
            action as recommended, on Consent.
