[January 21, 2016]  LINCOLN - Airport and Farm Meeting - Blue Room, Logan County Safety Complex November 2, 2015

Present: Gene Rohlfs, Rick Aylesworth, David Blankenship, Bob Farmer, Dave Hepler, Chuck Ruben Absent:
Guests: Curt Fox

Mr. Rohlfs called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm.

A motion was made by Mr. Aylesworth, seconded by Mr. Hepler, to approve the minutes from the October 5, 2015 meeting as printed. Motion passed.

Old Business:

Pavement Marking and Maintenance (AAA-4438) – There will be a letting on January 15, 2016. Mr. Waller presented several scenarios, including the possibility of employing someone to apply a temporary coat until the actual rehab work is completed; IDOT rejected the idea due to re-marking some of the marks that would not fit the new requirements.


Fuel Farm (AAA 4317) – The area being considered for the new Fuel Farm location is the turn area from the taxiway heading South. This area would relieve any hose issues of being too close to the building and would be a short turn for the aircraft to head back out. It could stay on schedule for the Runway Rehab Project in 2017.

Radio Controlled Aircraft Event – Nothing new to report. Mr. Warren Smith is uncomfortable with the program. Mr. Blankenship discussed the problem with the layout of the airport. Mr. Rohlfs discussed the problem with the mile specifications. Other possible locations were discussed.

New Business: None.

Airport Report: The TIPS meeting was October 19th. 481 gallons of fuel sold. The airport is now below the 3,000 gallon mark and could hold 6,000; Mr. Rohlfs will see if Mr. Holzworth could take 1,000 and get some low price fuel in.

Budget Review: Nothing to report.

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

Public Comments: An airport contour map was presented to the committee.
