Public hearing set for Wednesday at the Atlantic Airport


August 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

A public hearing with regard to the plans, specifications and form of contract for the Atlantic Municipal Airport’s Taxiway Grading and Fuel Lane construction project will be held Wednesday morning, in the airport terminal building. Following the 9-a.m. hearing, the Airport Commission will act on a Resolution approving the plans, specs and form of contract. The City received a grant amounting to more than $510,760 last May, to help pay for the project and other improvements at the airport. The grant requires a 10-percent local match.

The Commission will also review the construction bids, and pass a Resolution awarding a contract for the project. They’ll also review the status of the City Hangar Door replacement project, before hearing other, airport-related discussion and business. The hangar door project received a $36,000 grant from the State of Iowa. The project calls for an old, manually sliding hangar door to be replaced with one that is hydraulically operated.
