Mr. Hall said the resolution accepts the funding match from New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) to the Federal funding for the rehabilitation of the general aviation apron, installation of perimeter fencing, and installation of apron flood lighting project. He explained that this also includes the moving of the fuel farm currently located in the middle of this project and is hopeful to obtain State support for that portion of the project. He stated this project also addresses the water problem at the East Hill Aviation Club when it rains.

Mr. Klein inquired about the perimeter fencing. Mr. Hall said it is in the same area and this adjusts the security fence to accommodate the changes.
