On motion of Mr. Harckham the above item was received, filed and referred to the Committees on Budget & Appropriations and Government Operations.

RESULT:REFERRED TO COMMITTEE
Apr 9, 2013 10:00 AM Video Term 2012-13 (Government Operations) Committee Meeting

This item was not voted on today, because we have still not received the necessary updated legislation requested.

Ms. Chemka advised the Committee that this Bond Act would fund the cost of upgrades to the Hangar E pumphouse, including the demolition of existing underground equipment and the replacement of aboveground equipment.

Again, Chair Borgia stated that as soon as we can get the correct updated legislation the Committee can move forward.

Legislator Myers asked if the County Airport would be affected at all by the Federal sequestration. Ms. Chemka replied that they would not be since they are a smaller airport. The only issue the TSA, who administered airport security, would face would be difficulty in obtaining additional overtime for their employees.

Chair Borgia stated that we have discussed this item already and were awaiting updated legislation, which we now have. Therefore only a brief discussion was had. Ms. Chemka stated that this bond is to finance domestic water system improvements, including the replacement of both underground and above ground equipment. Ms. Chemka also stated that this is routine replacement, meaning that this equipment has simply reached the end of its useful life. Chair Borgia reminded the Committee that there is no taxpayer dollars being used for this project.
