Runway Rehab:

Mike Denton presented Invoice #5 from Talbert & Bright in the amount of $14,957.00.  Steve Rozek made a motion, seconded by Jane Lipscomb to approve payment of this invoice from the Commission’s line of credit with Benchmark Bank.  Unanimous vote to approve.

Mike Denton stated that the Commission’s request for nearly $2.3 million in State funding for the this project was not funded for 2017.  Jeff Tarkington and Steve Peterson explained the process used to score the various airport projects submitted for funding from all over the Commonwealth.  They noted that there is a surplus of funds in the Air Carrier / Reliever Airports Discretionary Funds but State code does not allow transferring the unused funds from this category to the General Aviation Airports fund, which has a major shortfall in funding.  The Talbert & Bright folks recommended that Mike Denton attend the next meeting of the Virginia Airport Operators’ Council (VAOC).  They believe this to be a good opportunity to lobby for the funding needed to complete the runway rehab.  Jane Lipscomb made a motion, seconded by Steve Rozek to send Mike Denton to the VAOC meeting scheduled for August 15 – 18, 2017.  Unanimous vote to approve.

Since it now appears that it will be 2019 at the earliest to obtain any state funding, Mike Denton will discuss with the VRA the possibility of a bond to fund the rehab project.

Steve Rozek made a motion, seconded by Jane Lipscomb to adjourn the meeting at 0943 hours.  Unanimous vote to approve.
