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

However, Ms. Chemka, the DPW&T Deputy Commissioner that oversees the Airport, did address the Committee regarding this bond act. Ms. Chemka explained that these funds would provide new HVAC systems, electric systems and baggage carousels, and therefore would like to move this along as quickly as possible.

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

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 terminal systems upgrades, including the replacement of terminal boilers, HVAC units and other electrical services. Ms. Chemka also stated that this is routine replacement, meaning that this equipment has simply reached the end of its useful life and needs to be replaced.
