By Nov. l't, need to let the F.A.A. know what the board wants to do with next
year's project. What the board wants to do with the terminal; a new one, or
remodel the current one; because something needs to be done.
Remove asphalt and replace with soil and seed. Which would also entail
replacing all the lights. Latest estimate around $800,000. But it's a very high
priority project since the sert inspector is pushing it.
Looking at approximately a 2 million dollar bill after construction of a new
terminal building. Andy talked to Connie Ova, and the airport could put in
a request for money from the JSDC, because their primary focus is on
economic development, and the airport is of great importance to this city.

Nelson seconded the motion; all voted aye, motion carried.
7. Manager's Report: Mr. Schneider recommends buying out the ford lease.
He's talked to the aeronautics commission who does a SO/50 match on
operations vehicles. Meaning we'd request $19,000 from the state and the
airport would pay $19,000. That'd be two years worth of lease payments, but
we'd own it. It is a request, there's a possibility it could be denied. There
were 4 different airports at this years grant meeting that requested a SO/50
match, and they were all approved.
