There was a financial report given to the board. The total funds for all 3 accounts is $425,841.40.

Paul Shaffer gave an update on construction. The winter months have brought construction to a hold until April 1, which is the start of spring for the contractors. They did have a topographical survey done and are currently reviewing it for spring. There was a partial pay request for $30,273.12 which is 100% federal funded. This was approved. The board approved the FAA intent to use funding for the 2022 fiscal year. The 2023-2027 CIP, with possible changes, was approved to be submitted to INDOT. In the future the board plans to strengthen and widen the pavement for larger aircraft that they hope to have land there.

Don Tribbett gave an update on land acquisitions. The Dickman avigation easement had been signed. The Robbins Trust property has filed exceptions on appraiser’s reports for 1.557 acres and an avigation easement of 2.47 acres. The Fred Sterchi land acquisition trial date is in January. The pre trial offer of $259,740 had previously been declined by Sterchi, however a counter-offer to accept the original offer as well as the board purchase an additional 5.698 acres for the same price rate as the appraisals was presented. The board accepted the counter-offer as the additional acres hold the unique quality of an access point into the airport.

Airport Manger Jerry Scheidler gave a report. The fuel sales continue in the winter months. They had a hangar available recently, however all hangars are full again currently.

The bills were approved.
