Airport Manager’s Updates

Runway Reconstruction Design Update

Shelley will be working to acquire the EOC equipment detailed in the 2021 COAR EOC Equipment Grant.

North End Development – Wastewater Design Update

Shelley Humble updated the Commissioners as to the status of the north end development/Wastewater Design.  Ms. Humble stated that the City and Airport are working with Aqua Resource Design and Consulting to complete the design for the Wastewater System on the airport to service all tenants.  The next steps are to dig test holes for an inspection by Lane County which is the government entity that issues Wastewater permits.  The City is continuing to work with the interested parties regarding the hangar build on the north end.

Helicopter Operations – Rules and Regulations Update

The airport now has a based helicopter tenant on the north end and that she has received regarding rotor wash.  Shelley stated that she has spoken to Mr. Gustafson to gain information on Helicopter operations.  A possible work session could be scheduled to  review of the current rules and regulations to see if any additions/updates are needed.
