Gordon Eccles was absent. Additional persons were Rick Harvey (Airport Manager), Chuck Sundby and Kevin Bissell of Toothman-Orton, Tim Callister and Erik Carlson of Mead & Hunt, and Councilmember Don Bailey. Members of the Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) were also present. Minutes The minutes from the August, 2006, regular meeting were reviewed and approved Public Comment: John Seevers asked about the wrecked cars parked next to the airport and across from the fire department. The Deputy City Manager, Roger Millar, explained that the cars would be removed within one week and that the city offered an alternate site to the fire department for extraction training. John Seevers asked about whether or not the airport was successful in collecting fuel flowage fees from contractors servicing fire fighting aircraft. The airport manager reported that to date the city had received $2,418 from $2,480 invoiced. Airport Manager’s Report: Hangar Inspections – Completed Runway Markings Painting – Completed – Runway is now in compliance. Segmented Circle Repair & Painting – Completed Gates – Service Doors now locked to prevent none airport personnel from tampering with mechanisms Control Tower – Tower operations ceased on the evening of the 4th of September. Tower facility is still on the field. Fire Operations – Update – most of the fire fighting assets have moved to other (higher threat) locations. Fly-In – After Event Review – Fly in was very light but public participation for static displays was great. Earth Scope Equipment – Location now on north end by the wind sock. Contract goes before the September 14th City Council. Hangar Lease Billing – Update – USFS is out, hangar billing in October FY 2006 Budget – Close Out – Some money (approximately $1600) left over – ordering VHF radio for the loader. Airport Manager’s Vacation – 4th to 19th of October – AAC decided to have the regular meeting on the scheduled date of the 5th of October without the Airport Manager. Business: Update of East Hangar Project by Mike Anderson. Transfer of the Wooten lease on hangar 206 – to remain with the hangar to its new location (with new exhibit “A”). Hangar Solutions requested that the existing lease be amended to show the new hangar location and then be assigned/assumed by the new owner. This would allow the new owner to continue to receive the favorable lease rate that exists on the current Wooten lease instead of receiving the currently applicable lease rate for new leases. This was put to vote before the committee and approved 3 to 1. This lease amendment and request for assignment and assumption will go before the City Council for approval upon submission by the parties involved. Hangar Solutions requested that they be granted the individual land leases for each hangar footprint. Then, when the hangars are sold, Hangar Solutions would assign that lease to the hangar owner (who would assume it) instead of the city writing a lease directly to the end hangar owner. This process was requested by Hangar Solutions to facilitate financing the purchases and recording of the purchases. Since all buyers are from the hangar waiting list, the normal AAC and subsequent City Council approval procedures would be waived. This was put to vote before the committee and approved 4 to 0. The $500 Hangar Waiting List deposit - will be applied to the land lease payment and will be considered payment in full of all lease payment obligations of new owners through September 2008. This would result in a savings of approximately $152.05 (non CPI corrected) for each hangar owner and an approximate loss of $4,865.60 in revenue for the city. This was put to vote before the committee and approved 3 to 1. This will have to go before the city council. Update on Min-Standards Sub-committee by John Seevers – Nothing new to report at this time. Update on leaseholds/property line realignment/change to ALP by Kevin Bissell and Rick Harvey – The surveyors of T-O will do their work in October. Leaseholds of Dew Aircraft and hangar 105 will be realigned, the airport property line will be reestablished and the ALP modified. To date, there has been no recommendation or vote by the AAC for this proposal. The bill would be divided equally between the airport, Steve White and Dew Aircraft. Update on Master Plan – Chapter 5 draft presentation by Tim Callister and Erik Carlson of Mead & Hunt. This was a public forum workshop, lasting nearly 3 hours, with the PAC and private citizens in attendances. Posters were on display. One showing the airport in full compliance with its current category of BII, another showing the necessary upgrades to reach CII and one illustrating the requirements to obtain CIII. The two committees strongly recommended that the airport remain in its present location and be improved to support the critical aircraft identified by Mead and Hunt (CII aircraft). Upon further discussion the two committees understood that the major difference for MYL between CII and CIII designation was the centerline separation between the runway and parallel taxiway. Since the taxiway must be moved anyway to accommodate full BII compliance and CII, it was decided it would be best for the airport and the community to strive for eventual CIII in long term planning. CIII status will be necessary for MYL to support scheduled commercial air service using the type of aircraft that are likely to be in service and applicable for MYL over the next 10 years. The committees’ comments will be passed along to the city council in Mead & Hunt’s presentation that evening. Adjournment – The meeting was adjourned at 1515 local _____________________________ John Seevers, Chairman _____________________________ Rick Harvey, Airport Manager
