A. DISCUSSION/RECOMMENDATION – MARK OSTMEYER – RATES FOR NON-AERONAUTICAL HANGAR USE AND RATES FOR CITY HANGAR SPACE- Tyson told the board that he had spoken with Lynn Martin with the FAA. She informed him that all rules apply not only to the City-owned hangars but also to the privately-owned hangars. Tyson stated that he would like all the City-owned hangars to be used for aeronautical use only. Paul said that there are several airports that sub-lease their hangars. Tyson thought that the board should go through and take a look at the primary use of each hangar. Mark Ostmeyer listed the items that could be stored in hangars according to the FAA. Bill Rohr told the board that they should let it go for now until the FAA serves the City a warning. The Airport Board suggested that the City should give all the hangar owners until the end of this year to get their hangars cleaned up. At that time each hangar will be inspected and if the primary use is non-aeronautical then their lease will not be renewed. Tyson stated that the Barnum’s condo hangar within the city hangar is the most hazardous at this time.
B. DISCUSSION/RECOMMENDATION – NEW HANGAR SPACE LEASE TO LOUIS AND LINDA TAYLOR – B-2 LOT 17- MOTION BY Bill Rohr, seconded by Ken Bixenman to approve the new hangar space lease to Louis and Linda Taylor subject to approval from the FAA.
