Atlantic Airport Commission to meet Wednesday


November 8th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The City of Atlantic’s Airport Commission will meet 9-a.m. Wednesday, in the airport terminal building. New business on their agenda includes the review of a letter from the F-A-A with regard to the Parallel Taxiway Project, and the continuation of an Engineering Agreement with Snyder and Associates for final project’s documents, bid, and construction services.

City Administrator Doug Harris said at last week’s City Council meeting in Atlantic, that the F-A-A will pay nearly $600,000 toward the $1.2-million dollar cost of the project, which involves completion on one segment of the taxiway to the runway. The City’s share is 5-percent of the total cost. The letter the Airport Commission will review, spells out a schedule the City must adhere to, including the hiring of an engineer by December 15th, and the letting of bids by no later than May, 2012.
