APPROVAL OF MINUTES A motion to approve the minutes of the February 3, 1993 Authority meeting as presented was made by Mr. Dennis and seconded by Mr. Patterson. The motion passed unanimously. IV. REPORTS Airport Manager Mr. Savage briefed the Authority on the following issues: 1. The Pre-application for funds to enlarge the northwest - run-up pad and build a blast fence, was submitted to the FAA on February 18. Engineers at Wilbur Smith and Associates estimate the total cost for construction to be $194,000. It is not known at this time if the project will be approved. 2. Burns and Roe, the General contractor for the FAA/NWS Automated Surface Qbserving System (ASOS) project, held a pre-construction meeting at Authority offices on February 16. Plans call for construction of the sensor tower to begin in three or four weeks. The system is suppose to be operational by October of this year. 3. Paving of the mid-field taxiway was completed on February 24. It was necessary to close the airport for about a three hour period during the process to allow paving crews to have access to the edge of the runway. Mr. Savage stayed on site during the runway closing to coordinate aircraft movements. Once temporary or permanent markings are in place, the taxiway will open for traffic. Taxiway lights will be added soon. 4. During the paving operation on February 24, a Life Flight helicopter arrived to transport an auto accident victim to Georgia Baptist Hospital. Emergency crews staged the landing on the road adjacent to the main ramp, as had been previously planned. The operation went well and lasted approximately 25 minutes. All paving operations were suspended during the rescue. 5. Mr. Savage and Dick Bowles of Wilbur Smith and Associates met with representatives of the Fayette County Water System on February 25, to discuss the soil erosion problem created by construction at the county's water treatment plant. Chief engineer Jim Mallett indicated the county would take whatever steps necessary to correct the problem. The Authority will submit a bill to the county for the cost of cleaning the mud off of the taxiway. 6. Mr. Savage expressed his appreciation for the efforts of Chairman Good during the last weekend while Oakview Construction Company worked to rebuild the ramp area adjacent to Hunting Aircraft's annex hangar. The project required maximum effort and Mr. Good's presence helped keep it on track. Mr. Good also expressed his appreciation of Mr. Dick Bowles efforts. Mr. Bowles remained on site during the entire weekend, which included several 14 hour days, to provide engineering support. r t 7. Ms. Debby Dennis of the FAA reports that construction of the antenna components for the new remote communications equipment has been completed. Installation of transmitter equipment will continue this month and she believes the frequency 119.8 Mhz will be operational soon. 8. Mr. Savage showed the Authority an updated version of the Terminal Area Plan which included the location of a helipad. The Authority discussed that location and it was agreed to relocate the helipad to a different spot near the future Aviation Center. Wilbur Smith and Associates: Ed Doyle and Dick Bowles briefed the Authority on the progress of the AIP 05 and AIP 07 construction projects. While weather problems continue to hamper construction, significant progress has been made on the AIP 07 project. The mid-field taxiway and the new apron areas on the northwest ramp have been paved and aircraft tie-down anchors will be installed later this week. After lengthy negotiations, the contractor for the AlP 05 project resumed work this past weekend. The entire ramp area on the northwest side of the main hangar and annex hangar was removed, graded to the proper elevation and had the stone base replaced. This required the most productive effort to date from Oakview and was performed very professionally. Plans call for paving the same area as soon as weather permits.
