PUBLIC COMMENTS

 

Jack Hallett commented that electric gates would be helpful in controlling activity in and out of the airport grounds. The FAA may mandate them in the future.

 

Jim Reike commented that the terminal building subcommittee should address the letters about the terminal building that may come in and not the commissioners.

 

Gary Phillips requested that the DTN weather station be demarked to indicate that it does provide full weather service required for a flight planning.  Pilots need to contact a flight service weather provider to obtain the detailed weather information.

 

It was moved by Taylor and supported by Bergstein to adjourn at 5:50 p.m. Approved 5/0.
