After reviewing all materials submitted in the bid package, Peckham Engineering has recommended the award to Mid-State Security. The State has reviewed and concurred with this recommendation.

Mr. Nagel stated that the grant will be sent by the FAA to the State tomorrow. The State acts as the agent for all AIP projects and requires a contract for each grant. The State transfers money for the grants based on estimates. Currently the State has $230,000 left from the original transfer and would need another transfer to complete the projects. This item is on the State Aeronautics Commission agenda next week. Once that transfer is made, we would receive an amendment to the State contract. The State agrees with approving the bids now to keep the project moving forward.
Dr. Distler made a motion approving the bid of Mid-State Security for the security/FIDS project and authorization for the Chairman to sign. Mr. Biltz seconded and the Board unanimously passed the motion.
PECKHAM ENGINEERING AMENDMENT: Mr. Nagel stated that in March the Commission approved a contract with Peckham Engineering to develop the specifications and bid the security system/FIDS project.
Since that project has now been bid, an amendment to the Peckham agreement is needed to provide construction supervision during this project. The amendment is for $57,799 and is subject to the review and approval of the Project Manager from the State.
Mr. Nagel stated that Mr. Campbell has reviewed the agreement and approved it as to form. Mr. Biltz made a motion to approve Amendment #1 to the Peckham Engineering contract that provides construction supervision during the security system/FIDS project and authorizes the Chairman to sign the amendment. Mr. Elder seconded the motion and it unanimously passed.
OLD BUSINESS: Mr. Nagel reported that the runway painting that is part of project #3205 is currently taking place. Mr. Riesinger informed the Board that PK Contracting started painting on Tuesday and is approximately halfway finished. Roughly 3,500 gallons of paint will be used for the project with a crew of ten. Painting should be completed on Friday or Saturday.
Mr. Nagel reported that the sewer project had additional costs because of the jet cleaning and smoke testing to find the connection between the sanitary system and the storm system. This resulted in a $2,555.38 increase in the contract. Mr. Nagel also reported that the deicing/spreader has been ordered.
