IAHA Board Meeting

April 26, 2012


The meeting was called to order by President Gary at 7:00 PM. Present were: Gail Hill, Dave Martin, Craig Cowles, Robert English, Alan Wright, Kelly Wilson and Andy Andersen.


SECRETARY: The minutes from the January meeting were posted on the web in February as a draft.Dave Martin moved that the minutes be approved as posted, and Craig Cowles seconded. All approved by voice vote.


TREASURER: Gail passed around a balance sheet, up to the minute as of today.She also had a projection sheet for what should be set aside for the taxiway project, and also a list of all financial movement since January. IAHA has had three different individuals as Treasurer in as many years, and it seemed good business practice to verify all was in order.  The QuickBooks file has been gone over by the tax accountant with that in mind, and all transactions are properly accounted for.


ARCHITECTURE: no new business to report.


MAINTENANCE: Craig passed out copies of an estimate from Valley Custom Sealcoating for the projected work on the taxiway system.He described the process that they are going to use, reading from the estimate to list each taxiway: the North/South and Comanche taxiways are singled out for crack filling, grinding, and bringing back up to full height.The entrances to Bonanza, Skylane and Musketeer taxiways are on the work order to be recoated.They expect to start the work in June or July. There was some discussion about getting the word out before work starts.Gary asked whether individual homeowners could contract with Valley Custom to have their taxiway entrance sealcoated at the same time that the taxiways get done.Craig said he would ask about that, but saw no reason why they would not.There was some further discussion about what specific areas should be done, and Gary said there was plenty of time to possibly re-evaluate which parts of the taxiway system get serviced.Dave made the motion that the contract be approved with a contingency attached of a 18-month warranty on their work, plus the Board gets the right to make the final determination which parts of which taxiways get the work. Gail seconded the motion. All approved by voice vote.


OLD BUSINESS: Gary said he had met with the water control folks about the flooding earlier this year. He has also exchanged emails and phone calls with the City
Manager regarding follow-up to the flooding issues; he hasnít met with them yet but he is expecting the City to schedule that gathering soon.Some FEMA money has been allotted but there is no decision about where that will go.The new City Hall still has issues with drywall and carpeting on the lower floor.There were some comments about how much improved the water flow was during the most recent storms.


FOR THE GOOD OF THE ORDER: Andy said that the next meeting for the committee in charge of the Memorial Day Pilot Memorial Event held here at the airport will be held next Monday. It will be at the Library downtown starting at 7:00 PM.


EXECUTIVE SESSION: After discussion, Dave made the motion to approve a limit of $1,500.00 to consult with an attorney regarding the continuing problems with one airpark resident.Gail seconded the motion.All approved by voice vote. Gary said he would make a rough draft of the letter for the attorney to be taken to him along with various papers that confirm our position on this issue.


ADJOURNMENT: The meeting was adjourned at 8:28 PM. Next meeting will be July 26, 7:00 PM, at the EAA hangar.Respectfully submitted by Robert Engish IAHA Secretary.
