???    The Salem Municipal Airport Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) met in regular session on Monday, August
25; all members were present.  The Board approved the minutes of previous meetings unanimously.
    Board President, Bill Barnett, gave a report on the Saturday, August 23, Aviation Day, estimating the crowd in excess of a thousand and between 25 and 30 planes arriving throughout the day.  Barnett, and all members of the Board, made special note of thanking the City of Salem for doing such an outstanding job of mowing and small fix up jobs around the airport facility prior to the event.
    Barnett also informed the BOAC that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has received written confirmation
by the agency charged with determining the impact on historic sites and buildings the new airport facility would have. In question is a log cabin on the Bowman property.  According to Barnett, the written report submitted to the FAA finds that the new airport facility will have “no impact on the historic building.”
    As a final piece of business, the BOAC voted unanimously to review the contract between Fixed Base Operator (FBO), Jeff Burns, and the BOAC.  Speaking after the meeting, several members of the Board indicated that Burns initiated the action to review the contract.  As FBO, Burns oversees the everyday workings of the airport from fuel sales to airplane repair and servicing to general maintenance of the facility.
    With no further business to conduct and with no comments from the public, the Board adjourned until its next regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, September 28.
