7. DISCUSSION FROM THE PRESIDENT, BOARD MEMBERS AND STAFF
Minutes, October 9, 2006, 2
• President Brown stated Board members met individually with Paul Meyers from Aviation Management
Consulting Group at various times on Friday, October 6, 2006 on the development of rules, regulations
and minimum standards update. They hope to complete the Primary Guiding Documents in February 2007
and are doing a great job. Brown requested Rod Senn, KLJ update the Board on the runway construction
project to be followed by a tour of the project at the end of today’s meeting.
• Shoener had questions about the development of ordinances and Attorney Green advised the Board he
has had conversations with Paul about what should and should not be in the ordinance. He will meet
with Paul again and following that discussion will be in a better position to answer the Board’s questions
as there are benefits as well as detriments in doing so. When the Board is ready to adopt the new
Primary Guiding Documents Jason will make a recommendation as to what should not be in the
ordinance and any amendments that are necessary.
• Rod Senn, KLJ updated the Board on the runway construction project.
• Brown inquired about the diversion to Ellsworth Air Force Base when the runway lights were out and
asked if they would make an attempt to collect because it costs them money. Ken stated from his
knowledge they wouldn’t ordinarily try to recover the expense but some airports voluntarily admitted
responsibility. The situation is still being evaluated.
• Landguth had a question regarding the emergency landing at Ellsworth asking if we have a procedure in
place to bus passengers back to the airport to minimize upset passengers.
• Ken stated we have had informal agreements with EAFB for bussing and would be willing to run a bus
over there. Staff will attempt to institutionalize it further to let people know what resources are available.
• Jason Green, City Attorney updated the Board on the Primary Guiding Documents conference he
attended in Denver stating it was very beneficial with a lot of good information and thanked them for the
opportunity to attend.
