A section of apron at the Pratt Regional Airport is scheduled for a mill and overlay.

A small runway rehabilitation project at the Pratt Regional Airport has been moved back to October to accommodate an airport business.

The project was discussed at the Pratt Airport Authority Board of Directors meeting on Thursday, Jan. 8 at the Pratt Municipal Building.

A 35 feet long apron area on the taxiway north of the existing T Hangers will have a two inch mill then an overlay. Bids for the project will go out in the spring, said Dea Dix-Brown, office manager.

The actual project will take place in October to accommodate Farmers Spraying that does a lot of crop spraying and needs a clear apron and runway for their busy schedule.

A new electric meter will be added to Red Man facility. There is only one meter serving two buildings. Another meter will be added so electricity can be measured from each building and JGL won't have to pay electricity for two buildings, one of which, a warehouse, is currently unoccupied.

The board is currently considering refinancing a loan with BTI.

The rest of the meeting was spent in executive session.

Board members present at the meeting were Tim Barker, Deb Zang and Skye Bare. Member Sue Peachey was not present.
