APPROVAL OF MINUTES A motion was made by Mr. Carr and seconded by Ms. Wells to approve the minutes of the August 6,1997, Authority meeting as presented. The motion passed unanimously. IV. REPORTS A. Airport Manager - Jim Savage Mr. Savage distributed the following report to the members: 1. Recent photos taken of the Aviation Center will be used on two separate publications. The magazine "Images", produced by the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce, will feature on its cover an airside view of the facility with a Gulfstream G-4 in the foreground. ...- . " j; The Rotary Club of Peachtree City plans to use a similar photo that includes an aircraft that belongs to one of our based customers. The photo will appear on the cover of the 1997-98 Rotary phone book. 1 ......, 2. The Falcon Field/Second Saturday event held for our based customers on August 8, was attended by several of our active tenants in spite of the poor weather. We fed some 50 people and held a spot landing contest for about six aircraft. Everyone in attendance had a good time, but our goal of getting the "in-frequent flyer" tenants out to the airport was only mildly successful. h 3. I met recently with a local restaurant operator to discuss a "burger and brew" type restaurant for the Aviation Center. The gentleman is working on a proposal that he plans to bring before the Authority for consideration, "soon." 4. Two "after hours" events were held in the Aviation Center this month, including the Authority/Chamber of Commerce affair on August 21, and a Ducks Unlimited event on August 27. Both were attended well and many more citizens were introduced to the Aviation Center and the quality of our airport. 5. The new storm drain line for the Aviation Center has been installed uphill of the entrance, and is awaiting the "curb" crew to finish the curb and catch basin at the street level. The budgeted amount for the project did not permit the installation of the trench-drain across the driveway as envisioned by Mr. Good, but can be added at a later time if it is deemed necessary. The additional cost would be approximately $7,000. ,....., The contractor was successful in severing only one of the three phase power lines serving the Aviation Center and damaging a second, in spite of apparent efforts to the contrary. Power was restored about two hours later. The project is expected to be completed by Friday of this week. Additional drainage improvements will be required and are being designed by Southeastern Engineering, who has admitted that a design fault occurred. Once we have received their proposal, I will have Wilbur Smith and Associates and the City Engineer review it for adequacy. It is my opinion that any future improvements will be the responsibility of someone other than the Authority. ..- r B. Tenant Liaison.
