Chairman's Comments:

Mr. Boyd said he would like to make a couple comments about the EAS. Mr. Boyd said our goal was to minimize the number of negative changes and enforce positive changes and we accomplished that.

Mr. Aldinger said the terminal construction is going well. Mr. Aldinger said the carpet and tile installers will be starting on November 28 or 29. Mr. Aldinger said TSA and Delta will be here on December 12th to install and move equipment. Mr. Aldinger said there are a few change orders that we need to discuss. Mr. Aldinger said some of the changes had to be made right away and some of them haven't. Mr. Aldinger said the first item is the louver that the architects forgot to include in the plans to cover an air unit. Mr. Aldinger said the architects paid for the louver. Mr. Aldinger said the change order is to have the contractor to frame the louver for $794.00. Mr. Aldinger said the next change order is to keep the door from the baggage area to the operations office. Mr. Aldinger said that is a deduct of $110.00. Mr. Aldinger said the next change order is for the door that goes from the hallway to the administrative area that was supposed to be moved. Mr. Aldinger said we decided there was no need to move the door. Mr. Aldinger said that is a deduct of $150.00. Mr. Aldinger said the next change order is for the apron and the sidewalks. Mr. Aldinger said the apron and sidewalks are at a slope and the contractor didn't take that in to consideration with the metal plates for the big pillars. Mr. Aldinger said the contractor poured cement and beveled it to cover up the plates. Mr. Aldinger said that is an additive of $2,267.00. Mr. Aldinger said there had to be an extra layer of brick put around the building which was a $330. 00 additive. Mr. Aldinger said the walls around the ticketing counter were supposed to be 2X4 walls but in order to tie in with everything around it they had to make them 2X6 walls which are an additive of $144.00. Mr. Aldinger said the South wall in the arrival baggage area was originally paneled. Mr. Aldinger said the original plan was to put hat channel on but instead they glued water proof sheet rock on. Mr. Aldinger said the next change order is for the entrance and exit doors which were originally supposed to have glass above the door but there was a beam that ran right through it. Mr. Aldinger said that is a deduct of $1,400.00 to not have the glass put in. Mr. Aldinger said the next change order is for the crash bars on the doors which are required but the architects forgot to put them on. Mr. Aldinger said the contractor would like $2,500.00 for putting on the crash bars. Mr. Aldinger said TSA needed more data and power lines put in due to new equipment. Mr. Aldinger said it is an additive of $1,800.00 for the extra data and power lines. Mr. Aldinger said the last change order is for the painting of the saufets of the old terminal. Mr. Aldinger said that is an additive of $450.00 for the paint. Mr. Aldinger said the total for the change orders is $8,936.00.
