During the last few weeks, Authority Maintenance Technician Bob Gray has installed warning signs and a rope barricade near the FBO entrance to the ramp to discourage unauthorized vehicular traffic. He is also building the first of several picnic tables to go in the park area opposite to the FBO. Additional tables will be built as funds permit. -- - "",.-. fi; ..i 2. Mr. Savage reviewed a letter from the FAA addressed to U.S. Rep. Mac Collins, in response to the Congressman's inquiry about the Airport Surface Observing System (ASOS). This system was installed at Peachtree City Falcon Field Airport last spring. The FAA has taken a somewhat indifferent approach to the questions raised by the Congressman. Mr. Savage will ask the Congressman's office to aid the Authority in getting a more definitive response. 3. Mr. Savage met on separate occasions with County Commissioner Herb Frady and County Administrator Bill Beckett to discuss the construction of the Fayette County Water System's raw water line which crosses the Authority's driveway along Dividend Drive. An encroachment permit has been prepared for the County by Attorney Doug Warner and awaits the county's signature. Discussions were also held concerning the future development of additional fire hydrant lines into the T-Hangar area, and the desire of the Authority to have the County Water System maintain these lines. Mr. Beckett indicated that he believes this is possible and that he hoped that the two organizations could continue their mutual cooperation to resolve outstanding issues. 4. Mr. Savage reported that he continues to receive inquiries and interest from those who want to build both T-hangars and/or executive hangars. He has one proposal in hand and expects at least two more. When he and Mr. Good have had an opportunity to review them and develop an opinion, he will make a recommendation to the Authority. 5. The last section of taxiway lights that were to be installed as part of the Airport Improvement Project AIP 05/08 were turned on Jan 4. The new system was tested by Wilbur Smith and Associates engineer Ron Sheppard, but did not pass. Apparently there is a bad wiring splice that is permitting a small current leak to ground. The lights work however, and will continue to be used until repairs can be made. Electricians were working on the system earlier this evening to correct the problem. - V. OLD AGENDA ITEMS None. VI.
