New Business: 

Old Business: 

Runway Rehab:

Mike Denton recently had a conference call with Talbert & Bright and VDOAV personnel where the idea of breaking the $2.5 million runway project up into smaller pieces was discussed.  The VDOAV was not in favor of this approach as they believe it would result in a higher overall cost for the project.

Obstruction Removal:

Mike Denton asked Neal Oberholtzer with the Department of Forestry to look at the area on the south side of the runway prior to proceeding with any clearing activities.  He determined that the area consists of 27 acres of marketable timber.  Mike has solicited bids from several local timber cutters to cut this area.  After clear cutting the area would be replanted in pines except for the area closest to the runway, which will remain cleared to control the obstructions.

Fuel System:

Mike Denton reported that Purvis Brothers had offered to pay $800 toward the upgrade of the Fuel Master system software in exchange for a 2-year commitment to remain with the Phillips 66 product supplied by Purvis.  Steve Rozek made a motion, seconded by Dave Williams, to accept the Purvis Brothers offer.  Unanimous vote to approve.


The door replacement and overall refurbishment of Hangar C is nearly completed.

Hangar A is currently empty and is ready for the next tenant.

Security Fence:

The security fence project is complete except for the setting up the remote controls for the gate operator along with establishing procedures for ingress by emergency response vehicles and personnel.


Mike Denton reported that while is was bush-hogging the 10 acre cleared area that he discovered a new erosion ditch running diagonally across the area.  Glenn Burney made a motion, seconded by Dave Williams to hire a contractor to fill, compact, seed and straw the eroded area.  Unanimous vote to approve.

Jane Lipscomb made a motion, seconded by Steve Rozek to adjourn the meeting at approximately 0930 hours.  Unanimous vote to approve.
