REPORTS 1. Airport Manager: Mr. Savage briefed the Authority on the following issues: a) Brochures advertising Peachtree City-Falcon Field to be produced by the Airport Master Planning Design and Development Committee, organized by Mayor Lenox, are still in development. The final draft should be available at the next committee meeting, scheduled for May 16. The committee would like to have pictures of the Aviation Center included in the brochure, so the final product will not be available until after completion of the facility. 1 ~, , b) Charles Clermont and three workers (C & M Construction) unloaded the steel from Erect-A-Tube on April 10, and completed erecting the new T- hangar by noon on April 22. During the 12 days his crew took one full day and two half days off for bad weather. Charles said this is about the 100th hangar he has built for Erect-A-Tube with over 1,000 total units assembled. Paving of the apron by AP AC is scheduled for the week of May 13. If electrician Bob Jones completes the wiring by mid-May, the building will be ready for occupancy, soon thereafter, but no later than June 1. c) Mr. Savage met with Jerry Peterson of Peachtree City Development Corp. to discuss the acquisition of an easement from PCDC and Planterra Golf Course to protect the 34 to 1 approach slope to Runway 13. Mr. Peterson later reported that PC DC was not interested in selling an easement over the property due to the limitations such a slope would place on building height on their property. Conversations with the FAA indicate that the purchase of the land may be another option. Mr. Savage will follow up on the issue and report back to the Authority. Chairman Good suggested that Mr. Savage investigate the possibility of rezoning the property to affect the same building limitations. ~ v d) The new hangar under construction for WK Properties, Inc. (owned by Mr. Douglas B. Warner and Mr. John Kazek) is ready for the concrete slab to be poured, with the intent of having the building completed by June 1. e) The slab for Mr. Leo Giles' hangar has been finished and erection of the building is expected to begin by Monday, May 6. Some tracking of mud and debris onto the taxiway occurred and the contractor made a half-hearted attempt to clean it up. The rain on Monday night finished the job. He has promised to do a better job in the future. f) Mr. Kurt Herwald of Stevens Aviation has requested to be placed on the Authority agenda for the June 5, meeting. We have verified that he will be on the agenda. 2. Group VI: Mr. Jim Pace of Group VI gave a brief overview of progress on the Aviation Center. The complexity of the roofing has caused a delay in its installation, which has caused the project to fall approximately three weeks behind schedule.
