01-04-1995 Regular Meeting I I j I I I I I I i I ,-.., f' PEACHTREE CITY AIRPORT AUTHORITY MINUTES OF MEETING January 4, 1995 The regular meeting of the Peachtree City Airport Authority was held in the City Hall Council Chambers on January 4, 1995, at 7 p.m. Those present were: Chairman David M. Good; Members Vivian R. Brigham, Michael E. Amos, Robert B. Patterson and Daniel E. Carr; Airport Manager James H. Savage; Authority Attorney Douglas B. Warner; and Recording Secretary Shirley R. Comer. I. ANNOUNCEMENTS Chairman Good announced the reappointment of Authority member Robert B. Patterson by the City Council, to serve a full five year term, ending December 31, 1999. Ms. Marjorie L. Bachman was appointed as first alternate to fill any vacancy that might occur on the Authority before December 31, 1995. ~ II. ADDITIONAL AGENDA ITEMS None. III. APPROVAL OF MINUTES A motion to approve the minutes of the November 2, 1994 Authority meeting as presented was made by Ms. Brigham and seconded by Mr. Patterson. The motion passed unanimously. The Authority did not meet during the month of December, 1994. IV. REPORTS Airport Manager: Mr. Savage briefed the Authority on the following issues: 1 . As of January 4, 1995, the Authority has received 11 deposits and letters of intent to lease space in the new T-hangar to be built by the Authority. Three of the deposits received are from current tenants in the existing T-hangar. Mr. Savage will again run an ad in the Atlanta newspapers soliciting tenants for both the new an old T-hangars. Chairman Good suggested that the - , 1 ,..., Authority also collect deposits for the old unit as well as the new. Mr. Savage expressed the desire to have 14 letters of intent for the new unit, plus three for the old unit before beginning construction. 2. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) used the Northwest apron to shoot part of a training film for air traffic controllers. An actor portraying a pilot flying an old World War II training plane, a PT-19 owned by controller Mr. Al Nesbitt, was used as a prop. Footage of the aircraft flying from Peachtree City- Falcon Field will be included in the film. 3. On November 28, the filters on the Jet-A and Avgas fuel systems were replaced by a technician from Eastern Fuels. The cost, including $541.40 for filters, was $864.72. Airport Maintenance Technician Bob Gray participated in the replacement efforts and will be able to make the next change by himself. It has been two years since the system was installed and the filters must be changed when they reach a certain pressure differential across the filter, or every two years, which ever occurs first. (!""'"'; 4. Mr. Rich Williams of the Southern Region FAA now says it may be March or later before the Automatic Surface Observing System (ASOS) will be fully commissioned. It seems that the National Weather Service has indicated that they will not accept commissioning of the automated weather observing station until they have a complete inventory of spare parts. Authority members expressed their displeasure at the nearly two year delay in the commissioning of the system and requested Mr. Savage to contact our Congressional delegation for assistance in resolving this delay. 5. Chief Jim Murray of the Peachtree City Police Department advises that the City has recently assigned one patrolman to work just the industrial business district and as a result that officer now makes 10 to 12 sweeps through the airport each night between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. He also indicated that these officers have been instructed to observe and challenge, if necessary, anyone operating on the airport during those hours to help prevent aircraft theft. ~ i< 2 r" ,..... 6. A new tenant will be joining the Authority at the Toy Box, Inc. office building. Mr. David Harris, owner of Senoia Aircraft Sales, Inc., will locate his aircraft sales business in the office opposite the Authority's space in the building. Mr. Harris will employ three sales people to sell a variety of aircraft types. Mr. Savage requested Authority approval to erect a sign on the outside of the office similar to one that is being prepared for Senoia Aircraft. The sign would be two feet by seven feet and would have the same appearance as the smaller sign now located in the window. Price would be approximately $200. The Authority concurr~d with this action. 7. Mr. Savage met with the airport managers from most of the major reliever airports in the Atlanta area at the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) offices to review a proposal from the City of Rosewell to build a heliport in their city. To qualify for Federal funding, it is necessary for the ARC's airport master plan to include this proposal. The group enthusiastically endorsed the concept. On a second subject, it was again stated by all present that the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games (ACOG) has yet to contact the individual airport managers or to utilize the planning prepared by the ARC for the transportation planning for the 96 Games. The ARC representative indicated that he would mention this to the ACOG representatives when he next spoke with them. V. OLD AGENDA ITEMS None VI. NEW AGENDA ITEMS 95-01-01 Election of Officers. A motion was made Ms. Brigham and seconded by Mr. Patterson to nominate Mr. David M. Good for Chairman and Mr. Michael E. Amos for Secretary/Treasurer, to serve for the calendar year of 1995. There were no additional nominations. The motion passed with four voting in the affirmative. Chairman Good abstained. 3 j-- , -. f 95-01-02 Review sketches of alternate Aviation Center design and developmental plans. Mr. Savage presented sketches for the Aviation Center that reflect a reduction in size from that designed in 1990. After considerable discussion, it was the consensus of the Authority that the original size should be retained, but that it be designed in modules so that each unit could be priced separately. It was also decided to proceed with development of a Request For Proposals for a "design and build" bid, to seek lower cost alternatives to the estimates prepared by Mr. Savage and Wilbur Smith and Associates. No formal action was taken on this item. VII. EXECUTIVE SESSION At 8:23 p.m. a motion to recess and reconvene in Executive Session to discuss personnel matters was made by Chairman Good and seconded by Ms. Brigham. The motion passed unanimously. Following discussions regarding a recent increase in Mr. Savage's health insurance premiums, a motion was made by Mr. Patterson and seconded by Mr. Amos to issue a supplemental check to Mr. Savage in the amount of $300.00 to be applied to those premiums. The motion passed unanimously. A motion was made by Mr. Patterson and seconded by Ms. Brigham that employees of the Authority be reimbursed for travel expenses at the rate of thirty cents ($.30) per mile. The motion passed unanimously. At 8:55 p.m. a motion to adjourn was made by Mr. Amos and seconded by Ms. Brigham. The motion passed unanimously. ~, David M. Good, Chairman 4 ,....
