Mr. Crosby stated Plantera Golf Course had not submitted a plan, as requested by PCAA the month prior, on what to do about the trees that pose a safety hazard at the 13 end of the runway. Chairman Whiteley asked Airport Attorney Doug Warner what legal remedies are available should their (Plantera) proposal be unsatisfactory to the airport. Warner explained that PCAA has the right to a Mandatory Injunction to clear all trees that pose a safety hazard. John Crosby explained that Plantera wanted certain sizes and types of trees, and that although the airport wants to be nice and provide the best we can, we cannot be an "open checkbook". Bill Rial suggested that a Special Called Meeting could be called, before the Authority Meeting in February, to make a decision on what action to take. Whiteley asked Crosby if the next step in remedying this issue would be taken the next day. Crosby said yes, it would be. PCAA also has the right to condemn the trees. Legally, if any trees are within the 20:1 slope, PCAA can physically remove the trees at will. Richard Whiteley asked what the timeline could be for condemnation. Warner responded that it could move pretty fast, or could take up to several months. Richard Whiteley stated that PCAA has been mulling over this issue for far longer than condemnation would take, and that the Authority needed to be prepared to consider all our options, and what would be in everyone's best interest to achieve satisfaction.
