The Greensburg Board of Aviation Commissioners met Monday night where they approved the purchase of a new fuel tank system for their Jet A fuel. Currently safety issues involving water in the fuel system has shut down the airports ability to sell Jet A fuel. The board received four bids for the installation of a new system or a repair of the old system and reviewed each of those bids at the nights meeting, ultimately selecting Fuel Techs proposal, which was the lowest cost proposal as well as the recommended system by Avfuel the airports fuel supplier. The cost for this system was listed at just over $106,000 with the board opting to include two additional options, a side mounted ladder and sump fuel recovery system that will increase the cost by several thousand dollars. The options will allow the airport to save some money in the long run, as it will let them recover fuel during their sump inspections which could amount to as much as five gallons daily depending on how often inspections will be performed.
An update was given on the status of the large hanger that had been under a long term lease with the Horan estate. The board hopes that they will soon be able to find a renter for the space to help mitigate cost on both sides. The hanger is harder to rent that the other structures on the property as it was built with special specifications for a larger aircraft.
Aviation Engineer Don Manly reported to the board the status of the five year Capital Improvement plan that he hopes will pass at the December meeting. He reported that there were only minor changes made from the previous plan, but the board chose to add an additional back-up project, the improvement of the taxi-way areas that were not covered in the most recent runway upgrades.
Audience members were given a chance to speak at this meeting as they have at the past, but in the future those wishing to speak at the meetings are asked to contact the board to be placed on the Agenda.
