Mr. Mendez provided the Board with a revised application, which he said presented the County’s position in a more beneficial manner. He also indicated that prior to the submittal of the application he intended to emphasize the County’s proximity to Death Valley and Yosemite National Parks, Mt. Whitney and Manzanar, which should also enhance the application.  He identified those areas  upon which the County’s application focuses, which are (a) rural isolation, (b) visitor access to major national recreational areas, (c) the economic enhancement value and (d) the connectivity to the national air service network.  Mr. Mendez added that the County’s financial contribution plainly demonstrates the County’s determination to initiate air service to the area and informed the Board that he intended to solicit and develop partnerships with the City of Bishop and the Bishop Tribe to assist with the County’s efforts to bring commuter air service to the Eastern Sierra Regional Airport.  In response to a question, Mr. Jewett, updated the Board on the status of changing the signage for the Airport to the “EASTERN SIERRA REGIONAL AIRPORT.” 

Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Arcularius to A) authorize the submittal of the grant application for the Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program for $1,000,000, with a match requirement of $100,000, for a total of $1,100,000; B) authorize the County Administrator to approve and sign all grant documents; C) direct that the match requirement of $100,000 be reflected in the FY 2003/04 County Budget for consideration from the Economic Stabilization Fund; and D) approve the Contract between the County of Inyo and the Boyd Group for the provision of grant-writing services for the Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program, in an amount not to exceed $5,000, for the period of June 23, 2003, through September 30, 2003, contingent upon the Board’s adoption of a FY 2003/04 Budget; and authorize the County Administrator to sign, contingent upon the appropriate signatures being obtained.  Motion carried unanimously.

 

P.W.-Bldg. & Grounds/Jail Boiler Replacement
