APPROVAL OF MINUTES Chairman - Jerry Cobb asked if there were any amendments or revisions to the March 7, 2008 Regular Meeting Minutes. A motion was made by Greg Carroll and seconded by John Cordner to approve the March 7, 2008 Regular Meeting Minutes. Motion carries 3/1. III. REPORTS Aviation Director - John Crosby reports that the runway rejuvenation project was completed ahead of schedule. He indicated that there had been great cooperation with the tenants and that he had received positive comments about the new runway surface. Mr. Crosby stated that water was seeping out of some of the areas that were crack sealed and that the contractor will be notified for possible repairs. The pad for the glideslope is being installed this month and the full ILS will be operational by January 2009. John Crosby reported that the Georgia Airports Association was unable to get the Congressional Amendment through the House and Senate for the aviation fuel tax initiative which would have directed approximately $35M of State fuel tax already collected into the State's Aviation Program. While this was unfortunate, the funding levels for the State's Aviation Programs is expected to be funded $25M which is approximately $lOM over last year's funding levels. Mr. Crosby stated that newly appointed Representative Matt Ramsey was quite supportive of the Airport Authority and Falcon Field at the State House and showed tremendous support during the legislative sessions. Mr. Crosby gave information in regard to the role and position that Delta Airlines representatives presented to the legislators and their reasons for not supporting the passage of the bill. He indicated that the State capped Delta's fuel tax amount at $15M a few years back and that today's equivalent tax amount that would be owed if this cap were not in place would be in excess of $1 OOM. There was also discussion regarding the shortfall expected in the State's Transportation Program, and that the Governor may offset this budget issue with other funding sources. IV. OLD AGENDA ITEMS None. V. NEW AGENDA ITEM 08-04-01 PBSJ Professional Services Agreement - ILSlLocalizer: approve professional services agreement between KFFC and PBSJ for relocation of the existing Localizer and DME and replace with new equipment approximately 1,100' from Runway 13 threshold in newly acquired land. John Crosby indicated that his discussions with Planterra Ridge Golf Course show that the relocation of the two golf holes are underway, however, the revised due date for the Airport to take access of the property will be November I, 2008 rather than October 1, 2008. Mr. Crosby spoke of concerns in regard to debris removal and the federal funding sources that the airport would use to pay for the removal. He stated that we were on a critical path to relocate the localizer in order to stay on schedule with the FAA's schedule of establishing and publishing full ILS approaches by January 2009 and that he recommends approval ofthis item. Dale Stubbs, PBSJ also stated that there was 15,000 yards of dirt needed to establish the localizer pad and safety area, and that this dirt will most likely come from the hillside behind the T -hangars. He stated that if the localizer is not relocated in time to meet FAA's December 2008 Flight-check schedule for the RW-3l ILS Approach that this could delay the p'ublication of the approach as we would be back in the FAA's Flight Procedures Queue which could delay the project UP to a vear or longer. Bill Flynn made a motion to approve the item as written with the addition "contingent to federal and state funding." which was seconded by Greg Carroll; motion carries 4/0.
