The commission looked over the
Skinner had a further conversation with Larry Weber, ODA to discuss the addition of a WAAS system for the airport. The GPS system is one of the requirements for a Category 3 that could be added without a great expense to the airport. The minimum elevations for the approach could be fairly low which would benefit pilot operations. Safety for incoming pilots would increase drastically. The obstructions and terrain encroaching on the approach would be what would set the elevation. Skinner will research the estimated cost for the elevation survey to decide whether to apply for one of the ODA grants.

The scope will include the leases with Ben Lindner, Skinner Aviation and Burl Brim Aviation. The timeframe is set for completion by the end of June.
B. Merle Mills Lease Discussion
Merle Mills passed away on Christmas Day. The family has requested to continue the lease to house the aircraft. The lease was originally signed in 1988 and is one of the open hangars. DeBoer motioned to transfer the Merle Mills rental agreement to his son and successor Kirby Mills on a newer version of the rental agreement for hangar number 6. Seconded by Wolske and the vote passed unanimously.
C. Siskiyou Rest Area
Skinner received notice from Jackson County Planning regarding the proposal for the Siskiyou Rest Area along the northern route of 1-5. The rest area has been in consideration for many years and is finally at a stage for development. Lamb has seen preliminary engineering and site designs on the project and brought up two concerns with the architect. One being the height of the buildings and accessories and the second being the type of lighting used to illuminate the site. Lamb should receive a form from the County for comments from the City and will include the concerns.
DeBoer motioned to send a letter of support from the Airport Commission for the development of the Siskiyou Rest Area. Bradley seconded the motion and the motion passed unanimously.
