Airport Manager - Jim Savage Mr. Savage distributed the following report to the members: AIRPORT MANAGER'S REPORT - May 7,1998 1. Completion of the OOALS approach light system is being delayed by the weather. Walker & Whiteside has be unable to complete the number two tower, that is adjacent to the new rail spur, because the soil has remained too wet for AT Plastic's contractor to finish the grading for the track. All other work has been completed. 2. We accepted bids for the crack sealing and re-striping project on April 28, at 2:00 PM. We invited eight qualified contractors to bid, but received only one bid from Wall Asphalt Services. r- i Wall's bid was divided into two parts. The crack sealing portion was bid at $10,555.00 and the re-striping portion bid at $12,529.00, for a total price of $23,084.00. Our original estimate for the total project was $23,868.00. The Authority's share was to have been 25% of the total, however Mr. Ed Ratigan of the GaDOT has indicated that the state will be able to pay 100% of the re-striping cost, so that the Authority's share will only be 25% of the $10,555.00, or $2,638.75, for the entire project. 3. I have requested Mr. Gary Rower, former F-16 pilot, to act as our coordinator with the Air Force Association in the acquisition and display of the F-16 from Davis- Monthan AFB. Mr. Rower recently visited D-M while on a layover with Delta and looked at the airplane, which he reports is in good condition. AFA representatives have provided drawings of a mounting base for an F-16 that is on display at McDill AFB, in Tampa. They have also provided detail photographs of that aircraft showing the mounting hardware that attaches the aircraft to the base. ~ I have requested Wilbur Smith and Associates to review those drawings for structural design, with the intent of providing a stamped set of drawings from which to solicit bids for the base. We may have to wait until we actually receive the aircraft before we can determine how the mounting hardware should be fitted. AFA representatives are attempting to locate drawings for the mounting hardware at McDill as well. 2 . In conversations with Mr. Dunleavy at D-M, Mr. Rower reports that delivery may be delayed a month or so due to paperwork problems within the offices at D-M. Our federal government "inaction." 4. We received additional sketches from Wilbur Smith and Associates on the redesign of Hangar Area "8" on the southeast comer of the airport. I have provided copies of the most recent design for your review. This plan reflects many of the changes I have suggested, and will require the acquisition of a comer of land from Peachtree City Development Corp. I will be communicating with PC DC about the cost of that parcel of land and the acquisition or use of Stallings road, with the intent of placing this item on the agenda next month. 5. Mr. Leo Giles began grading on lot 016 this week for his new hangar, and Mr. Bill Mercure will begin construction on lot 022 as soon as the City has approved his plans. Mr. Mercure is here tonight to get approval to build his second hangar on lot 017 at the same time. B. Tenant Liaison. Janet Wells Ms. Wells stated that she had nothing new to report. V. OLD AGENDA ITEMS 98-04-01 Review hangar area "A" lease policies and lease rates, including application of the 2% fee for "on.field" commercial operators. Due to the issues pending before the Authority regarding the future operation of the FBO, and the plans for an informal discussion of this subject to be held at the Aviation Center following this meeting, a motion was made by Mr. Good and seconded by Ms. Wells to continue discussions of this subject at the informal meeting and to table formal action on the subject until a later Authority meeting. The motion passed unanimously. ~, l -< 3 X f: r VI. NEW AGENDA ITEMS 98-05-01 Consider request from Blu-Sky Aircraft Detailing, Inc. to erect signs on hangar 023.
