Airport and Farm Meeting
Holzwarth office - Logan County Airport
November 4, 2013

Present: Gene Rohlfs; Bob Farmer; Rick Aylesworth; Andy Meister; Chuck Ruben, Bill Martin

Absent:

Guests: Curt Fox; Eric Hill; Sandra Lessen; Kevin Lessen; Ernest Groetsch; Brandon Flexsenaar

Mr. Rohlfs called the meeting to order at 6:08 pm.

A motion was made by Mr. Farmer, seconded by Mr. Aylesworth, to approve the minutes from the October 7, 2013 meeting as printed. Motion passed.

Old Business:

1) "Owned" hangar leases (Kevin Lessen/Eric Hill): Mr. Rohlfs reminded the committee of the issue regarding the County ownership of hangars on Airport property that were previously built by private individuals. The agreement in place when the hangars were built transfers ownership of the property to Logan County at the expiration of the lease. For those individuals to continue occupying the hangar(s), it is necessary for the committee to determine what rent amount is reasonable for this circumstance. It was suggested a lower amount be offered to the original builder/occupant of the hangar, with possible increase to any future individuals signing a lease when these spaces become vacant. A motion was made by Mr. Ruben, seconded by Mr. Meister, to set the monthly lease charge on the "Eric Hill hangar" at $76.00 per month beginning December 1, 2013. All future rent charges will coincide with the rent charges for the smaller, open hangars. Motion passed. A motion was made by Mr. Ruben, seconded by Mr. Farmer, to set the monthly lease charge on the "Kevin Lessen hangar" at $180.00 per month beginning December 1, 2013. All future rent charges will coincide with the rent charges for the new T-hangars. Motion passed.

2) 2013-14 budget: No changes are necessary before the budget is passed by the Board later this month.

New Business:

1) Weather station site modification (Land lease AAIA): The regional National Weather Service office is installing a new geothermal heating and cooling system at the Lincoln weather station. This is simply an informational presentation for the committee.

2) Movie production use of terminal building: A production company from Chicago will be using the HIF hangar for an upcoming film. The insurance company has been contacted to confirm their requirements for this purpose. They may also use a portion of the terminal building for dressing and make-up, etc. A motion was made by Mr. Ruben, seconded by Mr. Aylesworth, to approve the use of the facility for this purpose, subject to necessary insurance requirements. Motion passed.

Airport Report: Nothing to report.

HIF Report: Mr. Fox reported the hangar now has gutters installed. Nothing further to report.

Farm Report: Nothing to report.

Budget Review: No concerns.

A motion was made by Mr. Meister, seconded by Mr. Farmer, to approve the bills as presented for payment. Motion passed.
