REPORTS Airport Manager: Mr. Savage briefed the Authority on the following issues: 1. Mr. Savage attended the Project Advisory Team meeting of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) on August 5. ARC is working on the Aviation Transportation Plan for the 1996 Olympics.

Mr. Savage described his efforts working with Mr. Jim Williams of the City's Department of Developmental Services and Mr. Chase Broward of Peachtree City Development Corp. to devise final language for the notification to Planterra Ridge homebuyers of the airport's proximity. City Council dictated as a condition of zoning that all future homebuyers in the subdivision be made aware of the possible adverse effects of their homes being near Peachtree City-Falcon Field Airport. The final document includes an agreement to place the following paragraph in both the builders Special Stipulations and the subdivision's deed covenants: Airport. Purchaser acknowledges that: (1) The Peachtree City-Falcon Field Airport, a public use municipal airport, is located approximately one mile south of the southern portions of the Planterra Ridge community; (2) Based on information obtained from the Peachtree City Airport Authority, the normal flight operations, traffic patterns and published noise abatement procedures currently do not place flight patterns directly over the Planterra Ridge community, however established flight patterns and normal operations will result in low flying aircraft immediately west of that community; (3) There may be deviations from normal flight patterns which are inherent at all airports which would result in aircraft flying directly over that community; (4) Flight operations, traffic patterns and noise abatement procedures are subject to change; and (5) Operations in and out of Falcon Field may generate noise or other adverse effects which may impact the property rights and values in the Planterra Ridge community. 3. The Peachtree City Airport Authority Fiscal Year 1994 Budget will be ready for consideration at the October 6 meeting. 4. ,....., The taxiway and ramp area adjacent to the T-hangar and Portaport hangars will be closed effective 0800 on September 7 and reopen September 10. This will complete the seal-coating process for all ramp areas recently paved. 2 ".".... 5 . The Chief Pilot for the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. advised that they have chosen Gwinnette County Airport (LZU) as the location to moor their airship during the National Business Aircraft Association (NBAA) convention later in September. He indicated that we were a greater distance from headquarters at Dekalb- Peachtree Airport (PDK) than LZU , but they would keep us in mind for future events in Atlanta. 6. Mr. Savage has offered the ramp area adjacent to Hunting Aircraft for use by the promoters of the fly-in at Atlanta Hartsfield (ATL) as a staging area for no- radio aircraft to gather prior to their flight to Atlanta. He also agreed to use his aircraft to lead other aircraft to ATL if needed during the September 15-19 period. Promoter Don Johnson will advise. 7. Member Viki Brigham will complete the final draft of the new informational brochure for the airport upon her return from vacation. It will include a new photo of the airport to be shot soon by Mr. Savage. .~ Wilbur Smith and Associates: Engineer Dick Bowles of Wilbur Smith and Associates briefed the Authority on the current status of all AIP construction projects now underway. Seal-coating of the ramp areas, grading and grassing of the shoulders, striping of the taxiways, completion of the perimeter fence and most taxiway lighting should be completed by the October meeting of the Authority. V. OLD AGENDA ITEMS 93-09-02 Award contract for LOC/DME/NDB maintenance. Mr. Savage explained that after a re-bid was conducted with requests for bids being sent to 12 bidders supplied by the FAA, there was still only one bidder for the monthly maintenance of the above listed equipment, Mr. George Miler. ~ The rate bid was for $689.00 per month for all FAA required maintenance checks including ground and flight inspections. Callout trips over and above the four included in the base bid would be paid at the rate of $696.00 per trip. 3 ~ A determination was made that the cost of training a local technician at the factory would exceed $10,800, plus expenses. Mr. Amos and Mr. Good again expressed concern that the bid was too high, but agreed that we were dealing with a limited resource which apparently can charge what the traffic will bear. A motion to authorize the Chairman to award and sign a contract with Miler Tronics as bid, was made by Mr. Dennis and seconded by Mr. Patterson. The motion passed with three members voting in the affirmative and Mr. Michael Amos voting nay. VI. NEW AGENDA ITEMS NONE. At 7:26 p.m. a motion to recess and reconvene in Executive Session to consider personnel matters was made by Mr. Good and seconded by Mr. Michael Amos. The motion passed unanimouSly. ;--r, VII.
