Surveyor Ward explained that we have the Airport Drainage Study. Board Member Diener brought drainage issues that were created with the extension of the runway. The concern was with the new county road 225 this could continue the drainage issue. CHA had submitted some plans that had been reviewed by the Surveyor with some recommendations of some changes. They need to work on land acquisition for the roadway and would like to know if the county is going to get involved because both the tenant farmer Rick Roach as well as the property owner Brittons would like to see something done to improve it. The question is they only looked at the right of way where the road is at. HWC was contacted to provide a scope of what would be if the Surveyor’s Office or the County got involved. What needs would need to be met and what expectations would be. Board Member Diener stated that the intent would be to pipe it vs. using the swale, everything would go north. Surveyor Ward explained that everything from the end of the runway and the west side of the runway, between the runway and Luse Rd and North of the runway, everything goes to that ditch now. To the east of the runway, that water wants to go east across Hubbard’s ground. Surveyor Ward asked for direction. The board request that he contact HWC with a scope of work and request a cost estimate.



There being no other business before the board, the meeting was adjourned.
