  documentCouncil Memo Printout

  a. PSA (City Contract No. 2019-069) with Dibble Engineering for Design & Consulting Services for FY2019-2023

  b. PRC New Terminal 30% Design Proposal

Dr. Sobata states that the launch of the new air service has been far better than expected. It's the best launch for Skywest ever. 

The target is to get 9/18/19 - they hope to get funding for the terminal from the FAA due to an extra funding for the FAA for small rural airports. 

"I think many of you have been on council for years, even decades, and have heard about the need for a new terminal. I think it's time to build a new terminal!" Dr. Sobata said. 

Dr. Sobata said the costs are eligible for reimbursement by the FAA.

Currently 140 parking spaces, added in over 34 new spaces over Labor Day Weekend, and extra ADA accessible. There are also over 140 spaces able to be shuttled to and from. 

"The 16 years I've been her, my number one issue after water has been the airport," Councilman Blair said. 

Phase 1 of the terminal is about 16K SF.

Good to go environmentally up to 17K on this project. 

The main part of the current terminal is about 4400 SF. Part of it is on railroad ties. All together under roof is about 10K. They would like to reuse the terminal historically. 

Mayor Mengarelli asks about number of gates. 

They could accommodate 2-3 gates for 70-76 seat planes

Additional hangars are planned for the future. 

Sandra Smith wants very large stalls for wheelchairs. 

Dr. Askari recommends as large as possible.
