4/24/2018 - Board of Aviation Commissioners Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg Board of Aviation Commissioners met Monday evening. Vice President Jon Dooley provided the financial report with $56,795.37 in the Airport Improvement Account; $88,190.35 in the Aviation and Rotary Fuel Account; and $130,776.67 in the Airport Operations Account for a total of $275,762.39. BF&S did not have a representative at the meeting for the second consecutive month, so no official update on the environmental document was provided to the board.

The board members continued the discussion of building two additional hangars, one with 2,000 square feet and one with 1,800 square feet. It was clearly pointed out that additional hangars remain only in the discussion phase. John Elsner had submitted a bid last month for a pole barn style hangar at a price of about $170,000. Since the last meeting, Hagerty Building and Construction submitted a bid for a steel frame hangar at a cost of about $238,000. The board authorized Jon Dooley to meet with 2 potential clients to determine their needs and the length of commitment they are willing to make before moving forward. President Bill Ernstes provided possible financing scenarios based on a 10 year term and an interest rate of 2.5 percent. As an example, a loan amount of $175,000 would result in a monthly payment of about $1,650 with the total payment at just under $198,000 over the 10 year term.

Airport Manager Jerry Scheidler provided an update on bids for a new low lead fuel pump and dispensing system. The current system was purchased in the 1940's, so replacement parts are not available. The board reviewed bids from Sparling Corporation and Fuel Tech, Inc. Mr. Scheidler pointed out that the Sparling Corporation bid would be built on the current pad with only a 5-8 week lead time and at a lower cost while the Fuel Tech, Inc bid would have about a 16 week lead time and would require a new pad. After discussion, the board approved the bid from Starling Corporation. The project will be paid at the maximum amount allowed from the aviation and rotary fuel account, with the remainder paid from the airport operations account.

The board will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, May 29th at 7:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
