Call to Order - Invocation and Pledge of Allegiance. Approval of Minutes — March 12, Airport Manager Update 5.
New Business 6. Mark Crawford gave the invocation and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Approval of Minutes from March 12, Meeting Bo Wroten made a motion to accept the minutes from the March 12, meeting. Byron Oldham seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously. Once the grant is issued, AM Dean will take the grant, the construction agreement and the construction administration, oversight and inspection services contracts to the City Commission for approval consideration.
GAI Consultants is deing the apron rehabilitation. Jack Thompson from GAI reported that the surveying and geotechnical crews were onsite for a couple days in June. This project covers nearly all of the apron. The contractor will be issued a full Notice to Proceed dated July 1, Chairman Reisman asked if the project was behind schedule.
Jack Thompson stated that permitting took slightly longer than expected. The contractor was issued a partial Notice to Proceed so they could begin working with a building manufacturer and permit the structures. AM Dean noted that the City wanted to provide the contractor with an opportunity to handle all permitting prior to starting the clock on construction. The additional services were added to the contract. CBP will then review and comment. Once all the comments are addressed, they can work on getting the bid package ready.
Chairman Reisman asked if the Customs office will be closed during the remodel. AM Dean reported that arrangements have been discussed with CBP; however, a plan has not been formulated.
Ideally, if CBP has a mobile unit that the agent can work out of on the ramp, we will remain open. However, that decision has not been finalized. She said it would have been most convenient if the required facility rehab construction aligned with the temporary closure; however, the timeline to complete de, receive CBP approvals, bid the construction, and present the construction project to the City Commission for approval consideration will extend beyond the end of FY Bo Wroten asked about the difference in the billing process.
Ftz zone schedule
They are now changing to a full cost recovery basis and the exact rate is not known at this time. The equipment is on order and expected to arrive in late August. Bo Wroten asked if we are upgrading only the radios or are we also getting radar. AM Dean reported that she has been in conversation with multiple FAA and Air Traffic Organization staff regarding radar; however, unfortunately it does not look promising.
It will be a few weeks before it is complete. The Wilco and Echo age project is complete.
Inspections were passed. Both s should be lit for the first time this evening. Ned Bowers from Skybolt asked for additional clarification on why Customs is closed. Chairman Reisman asked if we have a guarantee from the stakeholders that Customs will reopen on October 1st. AM Dean commented that the decision to pause was verbal.
The decision to reopen has not yet been discussed. An from CBP was received today with a deadline date in which they want the City to reply as to if they will reopen.
Tom Frost asked for more information on the FCR. AM Dean stated that it is based on the agents pay grade, plus She has spoken to other airports and no one seems to have a clear understanding of how much the rates will increase. Byron Oldham asked where the money comes from to pay Customs. Ned Bowers asked who set the clearance rates. AM Dean believes it was the City that set the rates in Ned Bowers said he cleared here once and was surprised at how inexpensive it was.
He asked, outside of the Villages, how many others take advantage of this service. Chairman Reisman expressed his concern that if the Customs office is closed, the airport would not be able to get the service back. Chairman Reisman encouraged Board members to discuss this issue with their appointing Commissioners.
Byron Oldham said it would be important to try to determine the economic impact of having Customs at the airport. Tom Frost inquired about the Foreign Trade Zone and users of the zone. AM Dean reported that there have not been any users. The Zone will officially close if there are no users 18 months from that date.
A few companies have shown interest either directly to the Airport Manager and Deputy City Manager or via Lake County Economic Development team; however, nothing came to fruition. The City can reopen the zone by going through the same application and approval procedures as with the initial process, with no prejudice.
AM Dean stated the mechanical parts of the gate are repaired and operational and it can be opened and closed manually. She is awaiting a quote to address the access technology options. There are only a couple of persons in the Condo hangars that wish to see the gate closed. She is aware that their reasons for wanting the gate closed have nothing to do with the security of the airport. Charlie Taylor, the past president of the Weir hangars, said that during Through the Fence discussions with the City Manager, they agreed the aircraft gate could remain open.
AM Dean does not have written documentation of this. Most based tenants are confident that the perimeter vehicle gate 11 is sufficient protection for the property.
AM Dean said, that for added security, the camera at the aircraft gate is being upgraded and will have views of the gate as well as up the road. Adjournment Byron Oldham made a motion to adjourn. Bo Wroten seconded and the meeting adjourned at pm.
