Greensburg Municipal Airport (I34) board discusses the future



GREENSBURG — The Board of Aviation Commissioners met on Monday evening at City Hall to discuss a wide array of topics.

Discussions likely reached a plateau while discussing a route to take with their 2014 entitlement money. The money, a $150,000 grant from the FAA, will go to use in making improvement to the airport. Options discussed by the board members were an Automated Weather Station (AWOS), purchasing land to extend the runway or possibly extending a waterline from Park Road to Delta Faucet.

No vote was made following the discussion.

Civil Air Patrol leaves Greensburg

Airport Manager Jerry Scheidler also made an announcement in regards to the Civil Air Patrol. Scheidler began by explaining his point of view on the situation over the past few months.

“I have not seen any activity out of them in awhile --- I’d say 2-3 months almost,” Scheidler said. “There is no evidence they’ve been in the terminal or held any meetings. I have not seen an aircraft in or out of the hangar. So I ended up calling them the other day to see what was going on and they explained that the interest they were hoping for never came about and they decided to shut down operations.”

Scheidler did explain that he recalled based on a previous conversation with the CAP that they explained that they needed 15 local members, which they did not have.

100LL Fuel Pump Discussion

The Board also discussed the possibility of purchasing the 100LL Fuel pump and card reader replacement. Much discussion surrounded when the purchase and upgrades would be made rather than if they would be made.

Discussions will continue moving forward if the board wants to purchase the upgrades this year or next.

The Airport Board will meet again at 7 p.m. at City Hall on Sep. 26.
