OLD BUSINESS:

REVIEW/DISCUSSION – MARK OSTMEYER – RATES FOR NON-AERONAUTICAL HANGAR USE AND RATES FOR CITY HANGAR SPACE- Mark Ostmeyer directed the board’s attention to the leases that were included in the packet. He stated that there will be a separate lease for non-aeronautical hangar use and different rates also. He stated that this will serve two purposes. 1) To discourage non-aeronautical use and 2) To get fair market value. Mark mentioned that no realtor will sign off on the fair market value of the hangars so the FAA told him to figure the percentage of known lease amounts and use that number for the non-aeronautical rate. He added that these have to be a monthly lease which has to be approved by the FAA. Tyson told the board that ultimately the rates and the contracts will have to be approved by the City Council. MOTION BY Bill Rohr, seconded by Bill Dowell to approve the contracts and the rates for non-aeronautical hangar usage. VOTING AYES: Mark Kendrick, Bill Dowell, Kevan Trenkle, Bill Rohr, Ken Bixenman. NOES: None. ABSENT: Paul Steele. Chairman Kendrick declared the motion carried.

REQUEST FROM GHK FARMS TO LEASE ADDITIONAL ACRES NORTH OF AIRPORT- Tyson said there is eleven acres of ground north of the airport that GHK Farms would like to add to the existing acreage that they already lease. He said they would charge them the same rate that they are paying now and change the acreage on the current contract. MOTION BY Kevan Trenkle, seconded by Ken Bixenman to approve the request from GHK Farms to lease additional acres north of the airport. VOTING AYES: Mark Kendrick, Bill Dowell, Kevan Trenkle, Bill Rohr, Ken Bixenman. NOES: None. ABSENT: Paul Steele. Chairman Kendrick declared the motion carried.

REVIEW/DISCUSSION – REHABILITATE RUNWAY 17-35 DESIGN CONTRACT WITH GARVER- Tyson stated that this is a standard agreement for the design of the rehabilitation of Runway 17-35.
