The motion passed unanimously. 3. Mr. Savage met with Mr. John Young, Chief Inspector of the U.S. Customs SeNice in the Atlanta Port Area, to discuss providing customs seNices at Peachtree City-Falcon Field. Mr. Young believes he can provide the seNice without additional personnel, but the current boundaries of the Atlanta Port do not extend to Peachtree City. To change those boundaries will require Congressional action. The current boundaries were established in 1962. Mr. Young has suggested that a joint effort by the airport management of McCullom - Cobb County, Gwinette County and Peachtree City will be necessary to effect the necessary changes. Mr. Savage has contacted these airports and is actively working to that end. "....... 4. Mr. Savage, with the concurrence of Chairman Patterson, has changed health insurance companies. The new company, John Alden, has agreed to write a "group" policy for one at a monthly rate of $428.38, with $1,500 deductible. This will amount to an annual premium savings to the Authority of $1,826.37 and a reduction in deductible sharing exposure of $1 ,500.00. The Authority indicated that no further action was necessary at this time. 5. The Aviation Center was used recently as a backdrop for the filming of an add campaign for Yamaha golf carts. A utility vehicle with travel bags, golf clubs and other items was shown transferring those items from an aircraft to the facility. It is not known where Such film might be used. 6.

A flight check three weeks earlier was unsuccessful, and the system was out of service during the interim. The delay in the re-check was due to the unavailability of FAA flight check aircraft to perform the check. v. OLD AGENDA ITEMS 97-02-01 Consider proposal from Mr. Mike Gunn to modify tenant fees.

Thanks, ~ Mike r-" , f' k. ~ MEMORANDUM DATE: TO: FROM: SUBJECT: February 27,1997 Peachtree City Airport Authority Jim Savage, Airport Manag Agenda Item 97-02-04, Airshow and Convention by "PAPPA" At the last meeting of the Airport Authority I was requested to continue exploring the possibility of the Professional Airshow Performers & Producers Association (PAPPA) holding their fall showcase and convention at Peachtree City-Falcon Field Airport. I contacted Kevin Vandenburg, Airport Manager at the Huntsville, Alabama, airport, where PAPPA has been holding their annual event for the past three years. To say that he was less than enthusiastic about the group would be understating his opinion. He did not say outright that he would not let them come back, but suggested that I should talk to his Director of Operations, Mr. Greg Smith, to get additional information. ,.-, Mr. Smith was quite frank in his opinion of the PAPPA organization and stated without reservation that he did not want them to return. Apparently, the feeling is mutual, since PAPPA has had no communication with the airport since their last event. Mr. Smith said we were about the fourth or fifth airport to inquire about Huntsville's experience, which he describes as very negative. . K Apparently, the purpose of the "airshow" portion of the convention is for new airshow acts to perform for the various airshow producers and promoters, in what might be considered a talent show. Mr. Smith said that while occasionally you will see a first rate performance, most are beginning performers with limited talent. He indicated that many times he was actually embarrassed by the poor performance he observed. A second and more important issue raised was the need for an active civic group to co-sponsor the event. PAPPA wanted a commitment from us by the middle of February, which would have been impossible without a civic group eager to take on the responsibility. I have not been contacted by any such group. r- ~. . Because he was after an immediate response, I informed Mr. Ed Bealieu of PAPPA that it was unlikely that the Authority would support the show at this time, but you would be considering it further at your March meeting. It is my recommendation that the Authority not participate. 1 r fi"" t . r . t, RESOLUTION OF THE PEACHTREE CITY AIRPORT AUTHORITY MARCH 5, 1997 Whereas, the Peachtree City Airport Authority maintains one or more bank accounts at Peachtree National Bank; and, Whereas, it has been deemed by the Authority to be prudent and necessary to require two signatures on all negotiable instruments written on such bank accounts; and, Whereas, certain members of the Authority travel on a frequent basis, which limits their availability to execute such instruments from time to time; therefore, Be it resolved, that by the adoption of this resolution, the following persons are hereby authorized to open and close bank accounts as necessary, and to execute negotiable instruments drawn on those accounts, provided that such instruments or checks bear the signatures of any two of the persons listed below: Robert B.
