Airport board eyeing grant possibilities
By JENNIFER ROMPEL
Members of the New Braunfels Municipal Airport Advisory Board are exploring the possibility of applying for a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation Aviation Division.
The board met in a regular meeting at 7 pm. Wednesday night at the New Braunfels Municipal Building.
Airport Advisory Board Chairman Ed Goerges said the board discovered an additional grant was available from TxDOT for any airport in Texas. He said a $100,000 grant is available. The grant requires a one-to-one match.
The board will be working with consultant Daniel E. Gudas, A.A.E., to develop ideas for applying for the grant. City Engineer William Dobrowolski said Gudas has 40 years of aviation experience and more than five years of consulting experience.
Dobrowolski said the grant requires that the funds be used for items that would enhance economic development. Economic Development Director Penelope Church will also be assisting in applying for the grant.
The board win take the nutter befcre the New Braunfels Qty Council Jan. 24 for its approval. The deadline for applying for the grant is Feb. 15.
During the meeting, the board also heard a proposal from Air America to building another hangar at the airport. Air America is currently letting a hanger. Goerges said the operator has requested to build a hanger because it is beginning to do military engine training.
“They would like to lease land to build a hanger. We had a question come up concerning existing leases,’* Goerges.
Goerges said one of the current operators is claiming to have right of first refusal on the land in question and once that issue is settled, Air America can begin construction.
In other business, Goerges also informed the board that he has been conducting a public awareness campaign about possible expansions at the airport. He said has been speaking to civic clubs in order to inform people about the airport.
The next meeting of the Airport Advisory Board will be Feb. I.
