WARSAW — It was business as usual at the Board of Aviation Commissioners meeting Tuesday, Aug. 9.
Nick King, Airport Manager, noted that fuel sales have continued to steadily rise this month. He mentioned that total sales are up several thousand gallons. King attributed this rise to Zimmer Biomet, Tree of Life Bookstores and Johnson and Johnson using more of their fuel in the recent months.
King mentioned, “Looking to have a much stronger year than in the three years I have been here.”
The board also discussed Brian Hoover leasing his land to Jim Holbrook. Hoover requested to have the option to extend his lease up to two more times if he does end up leasing from Holbrook. The board unanimously approved the request.
King informed the board the Indiana Guard Reserve has requested to set up a mobile ICU on Aug. 27. The Reserve plans to have members prepare for national disasters in this area. Samaritan and Lutheran will both be flying in to help with the simulation of a disaster.
- The board unanimously approved the motion to allow the airport to purchase used trucks from Kosciusko County for snowplow for up to $5,000.
- The airport will continue to monitor traffic through the area to figure out the best way to keep traffic flowing.
