C.    Taxiway Rehabilitation Project Update – Greg Reince from Century West Engineering provided an update.  Change of scope – will do full reconstruct on most of the taxiway due to geo tech results of the soil.  Also, shifting the taxiway centerline to correct an existing 13’ jog to the east.  This will align the whole taxiway parallel to the runway.  Bid opening is scheduled for March 2022.  Submit for FAA grant, then start construction around August of 2022 after grnat award.  Wolske questioned effect of centerline shift of future hangars and/or width of runway.  Reince stated no impact on runway and unsure of future impact on hangars.  Herdklotz expressed concern that construction would not interfere with Airport Day.  Reince does not believe there will be any overlap.
