An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $15,086,842 as Partial Funding for the Juneau International Airport Runway Safety Area Capital Improvement Project, Funding Provided by the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Alaska Department of Transportation.
This ordinance appropriates a $14,700,000 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program grant and a $386,842 matching grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.
This appropriation will fund the first phase of construction of the Runway Safety Area at Juneau International Airport.
At its August 8, 2007 meeting, the Airport Board approved this action.
I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

V. PUBLIC HEARING
This ordinance would increase from two to three members of the Airport Board who may be a tenant or an officer or employee of a tenant of the Airport while serving on the Board. A limitation on the number of such tenant/members was suggested by CBJ's auditor based on the fact that the Airport Board sets the rate charged by the Airport for leased space. For a Board member to set his or her own lease rate is a conflict of interest, and, when there are a number of members with such conflicts, the efficiency of the Board is reduced, and the work load shifted to other members. Recruiting for Board membership has been difficult, however, and allowing three tenant/members rather than two may facilitate filling the positions. This ordinance would not relieve the Board members of their obligations under the Conflict of Interest Code, and is within the recommendation of the auditor (recommendation of 2 or 3 tenant/members, maximum).
I recommend this ordinance be adopted.
