Council to consider new airport hangar contract addendum

Posted: August 11, 2014 - 4:04pm

The Conway City Council will meet on Tuesday night to discuss an addendum to “future-proof” firm lease contracts for corporate hangars at the new Cantrell Field airport.

The addendum was discussed by the city and the two firm leaseholders for larger corporate hangars, Allison Leasing and Bryan and Brandon Adams of Reliance Health Care Management, Inc., both of which operate Cessna twin-turbofan business jets.

Airport manager Josh Zylks said that all parties agreed that any future reduction in lease rates for future leaseholders should be applied to these first two leaseholders.

The city has received “earnest money” for corporate hangars from five other interested parties, but so far only the two have contractually committed to build large hangars.

The council will also consider approving the construction management plan for the FAA 2014 AIP grant for the Conway Municipal Airport. In other business, the council will consider:

• Resolutions requesting the Faulkner County Tax Collector place to place certified liens on certain properties as a result of incurred expenses by the City. • Approving the Pine Street acquisition and relocation expenses for the Community Development Block program.
