A. Pending Projects
1.Bergeson / Boese Update –
The City sent a demand letter to BB and they have not responded yet.
Staff will keep Commission updated. Commission appreciated
2.T-Hangar Construction & Soil Excavation
No real proposals were submitted to the City. The only submission
was from Jack Day asking for the excavation work for the hangar site
to be done by Burl Brimm who will do the work in exchange for a
hangar lease and building site. Staff needs direction from
Commission about next steps. Skillman commented that if the
numbers pencil out to trade the excavation work for a land lease
hangar it seems like a good idea. Commission considered the option
and would like staff to work out some numbers of the cost of the
excavation in comparison to the cost of a land lease for twenty-five
years. The proposal could then be put out to bid for other businesses
to make the same arrangement. Commission felt that the request to
waive the SDC charges in the Burl Brimm proposal wouldn’t be
acceptable. Rostykus would want any business to follow the minimum
Commission asked if the retaining wall was really necessary. The wall
is needed near Dead Indian Memorial Hwy. This will need to be
placed in one of the proposals.
Staff is to research the costs for the hangar and excavation costs. Two
proposals will be drafted, one for the excavation and one for the
T-hangar construction. Staff will need to work the retaining wall into
one of the proposals.
3.Replacement for Commissioner Alan Hassell
An article has been posted for this position and there have been no
applicants. Staff asks Commission to solicit to interested parties. Jan
Davis was suggested. A poster will be put up at the airport to stir
4.Sky Research Hangar Broken Ground
Eric Stowers reported that the hangar will be up and running, if all
goes well, by the beginning of 2001.
A.BUDGET ISSUES -
1.City Recognition Gift Money – Appreciation gifts, would commission
be willing to forego the gifts so that the money can be applied to the
airport budget. Hanson will bring this up during the budget meetings.
2.Final Rental Rate Sheet
Lease rates will need to be posted at the airport for clarification.
C. MAINTENANCE ISSUES
1.Patching & Crack Sealing
The crack sealing team has some more work to do around the runway
and W & H Pacific will also be doing the fog sealing on the runway as
2.Steve Green Door Issue
Skillman talked to Green and Green indicated that the doors were
installed before he rented the hangar. Skillman feels he should not
have the responsibility of repairing the doors. The cost of replacing
the doors could be as high as $10,000. DeBoer suggested sending
letters to each of the renters asking if they want their doors replaced
and if they did that their rent would increase to cover the cost. If they
don’t want the doors replaced, then they will not be affected.
Skillman made a motion provide Green an updated door provided
that after which he would have an increase in rental rate to defray the
cost of the replacement. No second to the motion was offered.
3.Drainage Grate near Fuel Islands
This is being removed by the Street Department as time allows.
1.Lincoln Zeve Request for Port-A-Port Hangar
There was no update from Lincoln Zeve, but staff and DeBoer both have
been in touch with him. Zeve will need clarification from the FAA on
allowable setbacks. DeBoer staked the area with Zeve and thought that a
permanent hangar might be considered for this area at a comparable cost
to the portable hangars. Commission wants Zeve to present a letter to the
commission from the FAA stating that the setbacks for a hangar will not
be a safety issue.
2.Alan Sandler Restaurant Proposal
Sandler will approach the project in two phases. Architectural mark-ups were
shown to the Commissioners. Conceptual drawings show where the two staircases
will be along with the elevator. The floor plan will add a patio over what is
currently the training room. This addition will add about 1200 square feet to the
Staff and Sandler will need to meet further to go over these plans and negotiate a
