E.Entry Road Landscape Design: Consultant presented landscape design to commission and will email the attachment to Kathol to distribute to the commission. The proposed trees are too high and will need to identify smaller trees instead.
A.Airport Good Neighbor Items: None.
B.Hangar Rental Policy Discussion (Commercial definition): Keep two lists for commercial and non-commercial hangars. The commercial list will have priority when a hanger becomes available. When a hangar becomes available, email everyone on the list to see if they are still interested in renting a hangar. If multiple people want the hangar, the hangar will go to whoever has the most seniority on the list.
Definition: Commercial hanger is anything we charge per square foot.
C.Hangar Inspection & non-complying use: A copy of the inspections were emailed to the tenant and to Skinner. Re-inspections will be in early December. Some of the main issues were with fire extinguishers and extension cords. Other issues included clutter, housekeeping, and one hangar had five buckets of uncovered oil inside. Skinner overall, they were happy with the inspections. Fire extinguishers are required at 100 ft. intervals.
D.Master Plan RFP – Commission Representative: None.
  1. Attached: Last month there was an issue with a fuel truck parking too close to the fuel island, with regards to the exhaust. Typical limits for fuel, is to not be within 50 ft. of something flammable. Butler will research appropriate limits.
Water Labs contacted Skinner regarding storm water testing and compliance. Skinner said they were cheaper and offered more. Kathol will follow up with Fleury on this item.
Currently we have four empty hangars. One was a City T-hangar and the other two used to be referred to as the Schaefer group. One is owned by Marty Jacobson’s, who does not own an airplane anymore; the hangar is empty and has his bikes and boat inside.
