[00:05:02]

UM, MS. ICE, ARE YOU? GREAT.

WELCOME BACK.

THANK YOU.

HI, UM, I'M LAUREN ICE.

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK.

I SPOKE WITH Y'ALL LAST MONTH, UM, AND I'M HERE AGAIN ON ITEM THREE REGARDING THE FUEL FORM UPDATE.

UM, IT'S A LITTLE CHALLENGING TO MAKE COMMENTS BEFORE THE STAFF PRESENTATION, BUT I'M DOING MINE BASED ON THE BACKUP MATERIAL.

AND, UM, SORRY IF I SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD, BUT BASED ON WHAT I'M SEEING AND WHAT I'M HEARING FROM THE COMMUNITY, I THINK IT BEARS REPEATING.

THERE IS A REAL CONCERN THAT MUCH OF WHAT WE'RE SEEING FOR THE AIRPORT IS MARKETING AND NOT ACTUAL COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE BACKUP, UNDER THE RESPONSE TO DIRECTIVE FOUR OF TODAY'S PRESENTATION, THE LANGUAGE SAYS SCREENING, FENCING AND LANDSCAPING CONCEPTS FOR THE NEW FUEL FACILITIES DEVELOPMENT WILL BE A COMMUNITY LED PROCESS.

AND YET, LAST MONTH WE HEARD THAT THERE, THERE WAS A DECISION TO BUILD A $2 MILLION DECORATIVE FENCE AT THE FUEL FARM FACILITY.

I AM NOT AWARE OF ANY NEIGHBOR THAT'S REQUESTED A $2 MILLION DECORATIVE FENCE AS A WAY TO MITIGATE THE IMPACTS FROM THE FUEL FARM, NOR DO I UNDERSTAND HOW YOU GET TO A NUMBER LIKE $2,090,000 WITHOUT HAVING DONE A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF PLANNING ALREADY.

UM, SO NOW YOU'RE SAYING THAT THE, THAT THE FUEL THAT THIS IS THE PROCESS IS GONNA FACILITATE THE LISTENING SESSIONS AND FACILITATE COMMUNICATION.

AND TO ME, IT SOUNDS LIKE THE AIRPORT IS, AGAIN, ALREADY FORECLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY.

TRULY LISTEN TO WHAT THE COMMUNITY WANTS AND NEEDS OUT THERE.

UM, I'LL PROVIDE ANOTHER EXAMPLE FROM THE BACKUP UNDER DIRECTIVE FIVE.

IT SAYS THE CONCEPTS FOR THE DRAFT, CHARTER AND MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS SLASH APPLICATIONS FOR THE GREEN TEAM.

FIRST, I WANNA BE CLEAR, THE GREEN TEAM IS NOT SOMETHING THE COMMUNITY ASKED FOR.

THE GREEN TEAM WAS SOMETHING PROPOSED BY COUNCIL MEMBERS TO JUSTIFY THEIR VOTE TO PUT A NEW, NEW FUEL TANK FARM NEXT TO A COMMUNITY WITHOUT DOING ANY COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

UM, AND IT LOOKS LIKE NOW THE GREEN TEAM'S GONNA BE USED TO JUSTIFY MORE DECISIONS WITHOUT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT BECAUSE IT'S A TOP BOUND DECISION.

IT'S THE, THE STAFF THAT'S NOT THE COMMUNITY ALREADY WHO ARE DECIDING JUST WHO'S GONNA BE A MEMBER OF THE GREEN TEAM TO START WITH.

SO THIS IS A BIG CONCERN.

THE RESULTS OF FAILING TO CONDUCT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, I WOULD SAY IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT.

IT'S NOT IMMEASURABLE.

UNDER DIRECTIVE SIX, IT SAYS A U S HAS NO MITIGATION OPTIONS THAT AT THIS TIME COMPLY WITH FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION REGULATIONS.

NO MITIGATION OPTIONS.

REALLY, THE NEIGHBORS ARE BEING IMPACTED BY THE AIRPORT ALREADY.

UM, AND NOW BY THE FUEL FARM CONSTRUCTION AND NOW BY THE NEW EXPANSION PROJECTS AND THE AIRPORT'S ANSWER IS SIMPLY NO OPTIONS FOR MITIGATION.

I THINK THIS IS DISMISSIVE.

I THINK IT'S INSULTING, AND I THINK IT'S JUST SHOWS A LACK OF REAL CREATIVE THINKING.

TO MY KNOWLEDGE, THERE'S BEEN NO COMMUNITY LED DISCUSSIONS ON MITIGATING THE IMPACTS TO THE NEIGHBORS SO FAR.

SO I DUNNO HOW WE COULD GET TO THIS CONCLUSION WITHOUT HAVING HAD A COMMUNITY LED DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT KIND OF IMPACTS PEOPLE WANT TO BE MITIGATED AGAINST.

SO I WOULD ENCOURAGE US TO THINK A LITTLE BIT, UM, BETTER ABOUT WHAT DOES COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT REALLY LOOK LIKE, AND NOT JUST BE PUTTING INFORMATION OUT FROM THE TOP DOWN, BUT WORK FROM THE BOTTOM UP AND LISTEN TO THE COMMUNITY TRULY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, LAUREN.

UM, MS. G, ARE YOU AVAILABLE NOW? JACKSON? YOU HAVE HER? AMANDA? I'M HERE.

OKAY.

YOU'VE GOT THREE MINUTES.

WELCOME BACK.

GOOD MORNING.

OH, READY.

HELLO.

COME ON.

YOU'RE, WE CAN HEAR YOU.

OKAY.

GOOD MORNING.

MY NAME IS AMANDA CARILLO.

I AM A RESIDENT OF MCCALL LANE.

I AM COMING TO YOU TODAY TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE HAVE NOT REALLY HAD ANY COMMUNICATION WITH THE GREEN TEAM, HAS NOT REACHED OUT TO US.

UM, WE CONTINUE TO HAVE TRAFFIC OR ALSO CONTINUE TO WORRY ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT'S GOING ON, WHAT THE, UM, IF THERE WILL BE ANY KIND OF MONITORING ON YOUR SIDE.

UM, WE HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT THAT.

UM, WE'RE JUST HEARING ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW.

UM, ALSO, WE WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN UPDATE ON, UM, WE WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN UPDATE ON THE MUD WATER AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED THAT.

MY APOLOGIES.

I'M GIVING ONE SECOND.

UM, I'M SORRY.

I'M GOING THROUGH MY NOTES HERE.

UM, AGAIN, WE HAVE YET TO HAVE, UH, MUCH COMMUNICATION.

THE LAST COMMUNICATION THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE TO THE COMMUNITY WAS LAST THURSDAY DUE TO WHETHER THAT WAS NOT, UM, DONE.

[00:10:01]

UM, AND THAT WAS, UM, THE PERSON I SPOKE TO WAS WITH SAM.

UM, SORRY.

UM, THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY FOR RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'M SORRY.

I'M, I'M CURRENTLY AT WORK.

ALL RIGHT, AMANDA, THANK YOU FOR CALLING IN AND, UM, WE WILL CERTAINLY TAKE YOUR COMMENTS.

STOP.

ALL RIGHT.

I, I HAVE NOTICED, THANK, I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE, UH, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PERSON THAT WAS JUST ENGAGED TO THE LAST CONTRACT IS HERE IN THE AUDIENCE SINCE, UH, SEE MS. TAYLOR OVER THERE AND LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM SUMMERS AND OTHERS ABOUT THIS, UH, MOVING

[1. Approve the minutes of the AAC regular meeting on February 8, 2023.]

FORWARD, LET'S, UH, TAKE A LOOK AT THE AGENDA, OR I'M SORRY, THE MINUTES FROM THE LAST MEETING, AND I'LL TAKE A MOTION FOR APPROVAL FROM, UH, COMMISSIONER.

UH, UM, I'VE GOT TWO.

OKAY.

SO RAYMOND, UH, DOES A SECOND.

I'VE GOT A COUPLE NOTES BEFORE WE CALL.

BEFORE WE CALL, UM, A VOTE, I WANNA MAKE A COUPLE OF ADJUSTMENTS ON PAGE TWO OF THE MINUTES.

AMY, YOU WITH US? UM, ITEM THREE.

LET'S, LET'S, UH, CHANGE THE LANGUAGE TO DISCUSSION OF A DEATH PA PASSENGER'S EXPERIENCE.

AND THEN LET'S NOTE THAT JUST LANE FACILITATED, UH, SIGNIFICANT SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS WITH THE, WITH THE TSA.

AND SO WE HEARD ABOUT THOSE.

UM, I'D LIKE TO THEN GO TO ITEM 14 AND, AND, UM, NOTE THAT, UH, THE FIRST ONE IS UNACCEPTABLE ISSUES INSTEAD OF ACCEPTABLE.

AND THEN ON THE SECOND BULLET POINT PRESENTATION OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS ON, ON FUEL FARM, THE MARCH PRESENTATION WILL COVER ENVIRONMENTAL ALSO, SHOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO WAIT.

LET'S INSERT THERE NEARLY FIVE MONTHS TO HEAR ABOUT THE SEPTEMBER MUD RELEASE IN THE WETLANDS.

THOSE ARE MY RECOMMENDED CHANGES.

UH, LET'S SEE IF WE HAD COMMISSIONER TODD, WILL YOU ACCEPT THOSE CHANGES? OKAY.

AND THEN, UH, RAYMOND, YOU ACCEPT THOSE CHANGES? OKAY.

ALL, UH, WE'LL TAKE A VOTE, ALL COMMISSIONERS FOR APPROVAL WITH THE CHANGES.

JONATHAN, AND DO WE HAVE, BILLY, YOU HAVE TO SHOW YOUR FACE ON CAMERA TO COUNT AS A VOTE.

UH, HE MUST BE AWAY, SO WE WON'T BE ABLE TO COUNT BILLY.

WE'LL STILL HAVE A QUORUM.

GREAT.

UM, MOVING FORWARD, UH, I KNOW THAT WE, UH, GREAT, THERE'S BILLY.

UM, I KNOW WE HAVE MS. BEEN, UH, YOU'VE GOT SOME TIMING SAID.

JAMIE, DO YOU MIND IF WE MOVE YOU UP? COME JOIN US, PLEASE.

[10. Air Service Update presented by Jamy Kazanoff, Air Service Development.]

WE'LL HAVE THE AIR AIR SERVICE UPDATE PRESENTATION FROM JAMIE SO THAT SHE CAN MAKE ANOTHER MEETING.

YOU WANNA TURN ON YOUR MIC? THERE YOU GO.

HERE WE GO.

SO YOU SHOULD HAVE THE REPORT IN FRONT OF YOU.

AND, UH, OF COURSE, THE BIG NEWS IS MARCH IN GENERAL, WE'RE 10% HIGHER THAN MARCH OF LAST YEAR FOR THE MONTH.

BUT COMPARING SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST OVER LAST YEAR, SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST, WE'RE JUST UP 6.9% THERE.

UM, THE BIGGEST NEWS IS, UH, COPA.

COPA HAS ANNOUNCED AUSTIN.

THIS OPENS UP THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE, CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA THROUGH THE STAR ALLIANCE.

FOR US, THIS WAS A VERY COMPETITIVE ROUTE THAT WE'RE THRILLED TO HAVE, AND THEY WILL BE STARTING IN JULY WITH FOUR TIMES A WEEK SERVICE.

JULY 6TH, GREAT NEWS FOR AUSTIN THERE.

UH, AIR CANADA, UH, VANCOUVER RESTARTS ON MAY 1ST, ALASKA'S RETURNING BOISE ON JUNE 15TH.

ALLEGIANT STARTS OMAHA ON JUNE 15TH.

UH, HAWAIIAN IS GOING FROM THREE TO FOUR A WEEK THIS SUMMER, STARTING IN MAY.

THAT SHOWS STRONG DEMAND HOURS TOO, DIDN'T THEY? YES.

THAT'S A GOOD POINT.

HAWAIIAN, THEY DID SWITCH TO A RED EYE.

SO HAWAIIAN IS FLYING A RED EYE NOW, SO IT'S A DIFFERENT SCHEDULE.

JONATHAN, I THINK THAT WAS ENCOURAGED BY YOU.

.

THANK YOU.

JONATHAN SOUTHWEST, ADDED JACKSONVILLE.

IT WILL BE STARTING IN SEPTEMBER.

UH, VIRGIN ATLANTIC HAD PLANNED TO GO DAILY THIS SUMMER, AND THEY RATCHETED BACK TO NOT GOING DAILY WITH JUST FOUR WEEKLY FLIGHTS THAT'S OWING TO VIRGIN ATLANTIC'S ISSUES AND NOT AUSTIN'S ISSUES.

WESTJET RESTARTS CALGARY,

[00:15:01]

MAY 18TH.

WE STILL HAVE ONE OF FIVE PASSENGERS INSIDE THE TERMINAL THAT ARE CONNECTING.

SO THAT'S THE LATEST DATA AVAILABLE.

I DON'T HAVE ANY NEW DATA THERE.

BUSY, BUSY MARCH.

WELL, AND I WAS JUST LOOKING AT THE RELEASE TODAY, UM, THE PRESS RELEASE ABOUT, YOU KNOW, HOW HOW MUCH BUSIER WE WERE FOR SOUTH BY LAST YEAR, AND, YOU KNOW, KIND OF A REMINDER TO, TO PASSENGERS THAT THAT LAST YEAR, THIS WAS A CRAZY BUSY MONTH.

SO I KNOW WE'RE, WE'RE BETTER STOCK UP WITH TSA.

JAMIE, THANK YOU.

YOU'VE BEEN DOING AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB.

UH, I WANNA MOVE ON

[2.

[Note: This contract will be awarded in compliance with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 26 (Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program) and City Code Chapter 2-9A (Minority Owned and Women Owned Business Enterprise Procurement Program) by meeting the goals with 26.87% DBE]]

TO AUTHORIZATION AND EXECUTION OF A CONS CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT FOR THE AIRPORT EXPANSION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.

IT'S A BUILDING DEMOLITION PROJECT, THE STR R CONSTRUCTORS IN THE AMOUNT OF 3.4 MILLION PLUS CONTINGENCIES AND, UH, CONTRACT NOT TO EXCEED 4 MILLION.

UM, IN OUR EXECUTIVE SESSION, WE JUST CLARIFIED THAT THIS IS NOT A CONTRACT THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SOUTH TERMINAL.

UM, WHO IS GOING TO SPEAK ON THIS, LYNN? YES.

OKAY.

SO AS YOU SAID, IT WAS A LITTLE OVER $4 MILLION, AND IT'S A DEMOLITION LOW BID CONTRACT.

AND THIS WILL BE A PROJECT THAT GETS DONE IN THREE DIFFERENT PHASES.

AND IT'S DEMOLISHING LOTS OF OLD AIRPORT, UH, AIR FORCE BUILDINGS ON THE SOUTH SIDE.

AND WE, AND WHEN WE GO OVER THE PROJECT, UH, UPDATES, YOU CAN SEE IN YOUR PACKET, UH, A PICTURE OF THE SITE AND A COLOR CODING OF, UH, THOSE DIFFERENT PHASES.

OKAY.

JEREMY? UH, JEREMY HENDRICKS, I JUST HAD A QUESTION ON THIS.

UH, THIS WILL INCLUDE CONSTRUCTION TRAINING PROGRAM, THE NEW LIVING WAGE, ALL THAT STUFF.

IS THAT CORRECT? YES.

OKAY.

AND IF YOU ALSO NOTICE THE DBE PARTICIPATION IS WELL OVER 20%.

IT'S LISTED AT, IT IS 26.87%.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, JEREMY, YOU KNOW, I HAD, I HAD, UH, BREAKFAST THIS MORNING WITH EMILY AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE BUILD BETTER PROGRAM.

SO I KNOW SUMMER'S BEEN WORKING HARD HEARD WITH HER.

I THINK WE HAVE PROGRESS TO MAKE, BUT I'M GLAD TO SEE THAT WE'RE IN THAT DIRECTION.

UM, COMMISSIONERS, AND DO I HAVE A, A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS CONTRACT? SCOTT, ARE YOU MAKING A MOTION? I, I LIKE ONE QUESTION AND ANSWER.

OKAY.

SURE.

GO AHEAD.

UH, THE, THE, THE DEMOLITION INCLUDE THOSE NOSE DOCKS THAT ARE JUST RIGHT ADJACENT TO THE PARKING LOT.

THE NOSE DOCKS? YEAH, LIKE HANGERS.

OH, THE HANGERS.

SO, YES.

AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE MAP, I DON'T THINK THEY'RE PAGE NUMBERS WHEN WE GET TO, IT'S 55.

OH, THERE ARE THE PAGE NUMBERS, PAGE 55, IT HAS THE MAP.

SO YOU CAN SEE THERE'S A LARGE AMOUNT OF THOSE SORT OF BLUEY PURPLE ONES.

THOSE ARE ALL A LOT OF THOSE OLD HANGERS.

AND THEN ALSO THOSE YELLOW ONES TO THE NORTH OR THE LARGER, UM, OLD HANGAR THAT THE AIR FORCE USED TO DO THEIR TESTING OF THEIR, UM, THEIR PLANES IN HUSH.

YEAH, YOU TALKING ABOUT THE HUSH HOUSES? NOT, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE HUSH HOUSES.

I'M TALKING, SO THERE'S, THERE'S OVER AN ENGINE RUNS IN IT.

THERE'S BY, THEY CALL 'EM NOSE DOCS BECAUSE THE V 52 S COULDN'T FIT ANY FIT THEIR TAILS IN IT.

YES.

THOSE ARE THOSE YELLOW ONES.

THOSE YELLOW ONES ON THE MAP, SORT OF IN THE NORTHERN CORNER ON PAGE 55.

THOSE BIG GIANT METAL BUILDINGS.

LYNN, EXCUSE ME.

UM, WHAT, WHAT IS THE TITLE OF THE PAGE YOU'RE REFERRING TO? IT'S PAGE 55 OF THE ENTIRE PACKET THAT YOU GOT.

YES.

IF YOU GO ARE NOT, IT'S TOWARDS A E DP BUILDING.

DEMOLITION.

OKAY.

YEP.

THERE, THERE WE GO.

IT'S THE A E DP BUILDING DEMOLITION.

AND WE CAN GO OVER A LITTLE MORE IN DETAIL IF YOU WANT TO, WHEN WE, UM, TALK MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT, BUT IT'S OVER 30, ABOUT 39 BUILDINGS, UM, THAT, THAT WERE DEMOLISHING BUILDINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS ARE, ARE THESE, ARE THESE QUESTIONS, UM, CHAIR IMPACTING YOUR, WAIT, ARE THESE QUESTIONS IMPACTING YOUR VOTE FOR THIS ITEM OR NOT? YEAH, POINT OF ORDER CHAIR.

SURE.

I THINK NORMALLY YOU WOULD GET THE PRESENTATION PRIOR TO MAKING A RECOMMENDATION FOR A PROJECT IN THIS, WELL, THIS PRESENTATION.

THAT'S WHY SHE'S MAKING THIS PRESENTATION ABOUT THIS DEMOLITION PROJECT.

OH, I SEE.

SO THAT, RIGHT.

[00:20:01]

WELL, CAN THE, THE STATUS UPDATE, I MEAN, WHAT, AT WHAT POINT CAN I ASK THE QUESTION? I, I THOUGHT YOU WERE, GO AHEAD.

I DID.

OKAY.

I DID.

AND IT WAS ANSWERED, I THINK.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

COOL.

ALL RIGHT.

IS ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS BEFORE WE SOMEONE MAKE, WANNA MAKE A MOTION FOR APPROVAL OF THE CONTRACT? CHAD, JEREMY.

SECOND.

OKAY.

QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? ALL IN FAVOR, PLEASE.

HE WASN'T UP FOR A BOAT.

ALL RIGHT.

[3. Discussion of Fuel Storage Facility Update Part 2 – AUS Initiatives and Fuel Storage Facility Monitoring Overview presented by Tracy Thompson, Chief Administrative and External Affairs Officer, Somer Shindler, Chief Development Officer and Kane Carpenter, Manager Environmental Services.]

LET'S MOVE TO ITEM FOUR.

DIS OR ITEM THREE, SORRY, DISCUSSION OF THE FUEL STORAGE FACILITY UPDATE.

ARE YOU STARTING OUT WITH THAT? I WILL.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

TRACY THOMPSON, CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER.

THERE ARE THREE, UH, PRESENTERS FOR THIS ITEM TODAY, AND WE APPRECIATE THE SPEAKERS THAT, UH, FROM THE PUBLIC THAT SPOKE.

YEAH, I WILL LEAD IT OFF.

I'LL HA PASS THE BATON TO, UH, THE MICROPHONE TO SUMMER.

AND THEN, UH, KING CARPENTER WILL DO THE THIRD PART OF THE PRESENTATION.

UM, IT, THE PRESENTATION ITSELF, WHILE WE'RE WAITING TO LOAD IT ON THE SCREEN, THERE WE GO.

UM, STARTS ON PAGE, UM, 15 OF YOUR PACKET, 14 OF YOUR PACKET.

SO IF WE'LL GO TO SLIDE NUMBER, THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO WHAT WE'RE GOING, GOING TO TALK ABOUT, UM, TODAY IS, UM, THE FUEL STORAGE FACILITY UPDATE.

PART TWO, AS OF WAS MENTIONED EARLIER, THERE WAS, UM, A BRIEFING LAST MONTH AS WELL REGARDING THE CONSTRUCTION.

AND THIS HAS SOME OTHER, UH, INFORMATION REGARDING THE COMPREHENSIVE FUEL, UM, FUEL FACILITY, UH, UH, UPDATE PROGRAM.

SO THAT'S, WE'RE AT TODAY.

AND WHAT WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT TODAY ARE THE CITY COUNCIL DIRECTIVES THAT WE RECEIVED LAST YEAR ON APRIL 7TH, 2022, THAT THERE'S SOME, UH, SOME INDICATIVE ITEMS THERE, UH, ARE SUSTAINABILITY GOALS, AND THEN THE MONITORING OVERVIEW.

SO THAT'S THE THREE MAIN, UH, TOPICS WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT TODAY.

BUT BEFORE WE START, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO AREN'T FAMILIAR, UM, WITH THE FUEL STORAGE FACILITY PROJECT ITSELF, THIS IS A, UM, AUSTIN FUELS, UH, LLC AS A CONSORTIUM OF AIRLINES, UM, THAT MANAGE, OPERATE AND MAINTAIN THE FUELING FACILITIES.

SO, UM, THIS IS CONSIDERED A THIRD PARTY GROUND LEASE AND WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION CITY OF AUSTIN.

SO THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION ENFORCES ALL THE TERMS OF THE LEASE, UM, THAT THE, UH, CONSORTIUM HAS FOR THE OPERATION OF THIS FACILITY.

AND WE ALSO FOLLOW THE DIRECTORS FROM CITY COUNCIL.

AND SO WE WANTED TO REVIEW SOME OF THE CITY COUNCIL DIRECTIVES TO THE DEPARTMENT FOR THE OPERATION OF THIS FACILITY, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF THIS FACILITY.

SO, GOING TO THE NEXT SLIDE AND THEN GOING TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO, UM, THERE WERE SEVEN DIRECTIVES, UM, THAT WERE, WERE PROVIDED, UM, TO THE CITY MANAGER'S OFFICE.

AND THEN THE CITY MANAGER ALSO PROVIDED AN ADDITIONAL DIRECTIVE.

THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION LAST YEAR RESPONDED TO MEMBERS TO MAYOR AND COUNSEL MAY 12TH AND JULY 27 OF LAST YEAR OUTLINING, UM, THE DIRECTION THAT WE WERE GOING TO GO TO, UM, ADDRESS THESE DIRECTIVES.

SO SEVERAL OF THE DIRECTIVES WERE TO BE INITIATED OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR, AND THAT WAS BECAUSE WE NEEDED TO GET OUR FISCAL YEAR 23 BUDGET IN PLACE FOR STAFFING AND NEW HIRES AND THE ENGAGEMENT OF CONSULTANTS.

SO THAT IS WHY THESE INITIATIVES ARE BEING, ARE HAPPENING IN FISCAL YEAR 23 AND CURRENTLY UNDERWAY ARE JUST BEING INITIATED.

SO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WHAT I'M NOT GOING TO DO TODAY IN THE INTEREST OF TIME IS TO READ EVERY, EVERY DIRECTIVE VERBATIM, BUT I'LL GIVE YOU KIND OF A SENSE OF, UH, THE FIRST DIRECTIVE AND THEN THE STATUS, AND THEN WE'LL MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ONE.

BUT IF ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THEM, YOU KNOW, FEEL FREE TO, UH, TO LET ME KNOW.

SO THE FIRST DIRECTIVE WAS JUST, UH, TO, TO CONFIRM THAT THIS PROGRAM WAS GOING TO BE LIMITED TO THE PROJECT THAT WAS OUTLINED IN 2022, AND IT WAS CALLED THE PHASE ONE DEVELOPMENT.

SO THE CURRENT STATUS OF THIS IS THAT WE HAVE LIMITED THE, UH, DEVELOPMENT TO THE PHASE ONE, AND THAT ANY ADDITIONAL, UM, EXPANSION OF THE FUELING FACILITIES AT THE, UH, AUSTIN AIRPORT WILL REQUIRE NEW ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, GREEN TEAM, AND CITY COUNCIL APPROVAL.

AND I REALLY, UH, RESPECT AND APPRECIATE THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE GREEN TEAM AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

THEY ARE CLEARLY TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.

THERE'S A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM AND A GREEN TEAM INITIATION.

SO THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE SAME, UM, INTENT.

SO THAT WAS DIRECTIVE NUMBER ONE, AND THAT WAS CLEARLY, UH, AGREED TO AND ADOPTED LAST YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

DIRECTIVE NUMBER TWO AGAIN HAPPENED LAST YEAR WAS, UH, TO PUBLICLY POST THE INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTY EA FOR THIS, UH, FOR THE FACILITY THAT WAS DONE.

AND THEN HERE'S THE URL

[00:25:01]

WHERE ALL UPDATES REGARDING, UH, THE FUEL STORAGE FACILITY PROJECT, UH, CAN BE FOUND.

SO THAT IS THE NEW URL FOR THAT.

SO DIRECTIVE TWO WAS COMPLETED LAST YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

DIRECTIVE, UH, DIRECTIVE NUMBER THREE WAS TO ESTABLISH A THIRD PARTY INDEPENDENT MONITORING, AUDITING OF THE FACILITIES.

YOU'LL SEE AT THE BOTTOM WHERE I PUT DE DETAIL IS THAT, UH, KANE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS DIRECTIVE IN DETAIL, UH, LATER ON IN THIS PRESENTATION.

SO, UM, THE STATUS IS, UH, I WILL LET, UH, KANE TALK ABOUT THAT, BUT HERE'S SOME BULLET POINTS ON JUST THE HIGH LEVEL OF THE STATUS, THE DETAIL TO FOLLOW IN JUST A FEW MINUTES.

THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO, WITH RESPECT TO DIRECTIVE FOUR, THIS IS ON THE MITIGATING THE VISUAL IMPACT, UM, SPECIFICALLY THE VISUAL IMPACT TO SURROUNDING PROPERTIES.

UM, IT'S NOT, UH, IT'S NOT, UH, MEANT TO, UH, GO BEYOND THAT, THE VISUAL IMPACT.

AND SO THE STATUS IS, AS WAS MENTIONED EARLIER, AND THAT IS CORRECT, THAT THE SCREENING AND FENCING AND LANDSCAPING CONCEPT WILL BE A COMMUNITY-LED PROCESS.

THERE HAS BEEN SOME INTERNAL, UH, CONVERSATIONS.

I UNDERSTAND YOU HEARD ABOUT LAST WEEK, UH, LAST MONTH, EXCUSE ME.

UM, BUT THE COMMUNITY WILL NOT BE, UH, LEFT OUT OF THE PROCESS.

UM, THERE HAS BEEN A CONSULTANT ENGAGED.

THERE'S GOING TO FACILITATE, AS WAS MENTIONED EARLIER, LISTENING SESSIONS, UH, INSIGHT AT DESIGN MEETINGS.

AND THE FINAL CONCEPT WILL BE, UH, WILL BE INCLUDE THE STAKEHOLDERS AND THE COMMUNITY IN DEVELOPING THE FINAL CONCEPT FOR THE VISUAL SCREENING OF, UM, THIS PARTICULAR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SORRY.

SO, THE GREEN TEAM.

SO THE GREEN TEAM AND THE, UH, COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM WERE, UM, GOING TO BE ESTABLISHED IN FISCAL YEAR 23.

UM, WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE CONCEPTS OF THE, THESE ARE REALLY ONLY CONCEPTS FOR DRAFT, CHARTER AND MEMBERSHIP.

NONE OF THE, UM, DEC NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN FINAL OR MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE COMPOSITION OF THE GREEN TEAM, UM, WHAT THE APPLICATIONS WILL LOOK LIKE.

THIS HAS JUST BEEN THE DUE DILIGENCE, UM, ON BEHALF OF THE STAFF THAT'S CURRENTLY HERE.

I'VE JUST LOOKING AT OTHER AIRPORTS, LOOKING WITHIN THE CITY AS TO OTHER TYPES OF, UM, OF TEAMS THAT ARE ESTABLISHED WITHIN THE CITY TO KIND OF LEARN BEST PRACTICES AND JUST KIND OF, UH, ORIENT OURSELVES AS TO WHAT WE WOULD RECOMMEND FOR OUR INITIAL DISCUSSIONS WITH THE, UM, BUSINESS AND THE, UM, BUSINESS STAKEHOLDERS, UM, FOR THE GREEN TEAM AND FOR THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM.

SO THAT REALLY IS JUST A DUE DILIGENCE.

THIS, THE STATUS IS REALLY TO LET YOU KNOW, WE HAVEN'T BEEN SITTING ON OUR HANDS.

WE'VE BEEN DOING OUR DUE DILIGENCE, BUT WE HAVE NOT ACTUALLY OFFICIALLY ENGAGED THESE PROCESSES YET.

UM, WE'RE GONNA BE WORKING WITH OUR, WE WANT THE AIRLINES AND, UM, THE MAIN DIVISIONS WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION THAT WILL BE LEADING THIS EFFORT, KICKING THIS EFFORT OFF ARE ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS, AIRPORT AFFAIRS, OR EXTERNAL GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS, AND OUR P I O OFFICES.

SO THAT'S WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO, UM, KICKING THE GREEN TEAM AND THE COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, UH, PROGRAM, UH, HERE IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.

DIRECTIVE NUMBER SIX IS, OH, I'M SORRY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I APOLOGIZE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

DIRECTIVE NUMBER SIX WAS TALKING ABOUT, UM, THIS WAS A DIRECTIVE TO THE CITY MANAGER'S OFFICE, UM, DIRECTLY AND TO OTHER ENTITIES NOT SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED, UM, TO THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION.

BUT SINCE IT WAS INCLUDED IN, UM, THE, THE LIST OF DIRECTIVES REGARDING THIS PROJECT, THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION INCLUDED THIS DIRECTIVE IN OUR PRESENTATION TODAY, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED, UM, IT'S OUR UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS DIRECTIVE FOR MITIGATION, UH, BUYOUT OPTIONS OR WHATEVER THEY MAY BE FOR THE, FOR THE RESIDENTS WAS NOT DIRECTED AT THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION.

UM, WE DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THAT, AS THE STATUS SAYS, BUT THERE MAY BE OTHER, UM, ENTITIES WITHIN THE CITY OR WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY THAT WOULD HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THAT.

SO WE DIDN'T WANNA DROP OFF DIRECTIVE SIX, EVEN THOUGH IT WASN'T DIRECTED, UM, AT THE AIRPORT FOR, UM, ACTION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

DIRECTIVE NUMBER SEVEN, UH, CAME, UH, AT THE REQUEST OF AN IN, UH, A SINGLE, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER, WHICH WAS JUST A CLARIFICATION THAT THE ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING WOULD INCLUDE GROUNDWATER, GROUNDWATER MONITORING, AS WELL AS, UM, OTHER TYPES OF MONITORING.

SO, UM, DIRECTIVE SEVEN WILL BE, UM, DISCUSSED BY KANE WHEN WE GET TO THAT DETAIL FOR THE, UH, MONITORING FOR THE PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO, UM, THIS WAS, UM, MAKING SURE, OR WANTING US TO CONFIRM THAT WE HAD, WE, THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION HAD THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO US TO BE

[00:30:01]

ABLE TO HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE, UH, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM, AS WELL AS ESTABLISHING THE ENVIRONMENTAL GREEN TEAM.

SO THOSE THREE, UH, DIVISIONS WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT AIRPORT AFFAIRS AND ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS, AND THE A US PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICES ALL HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE, UH, HR TEAM AND OUR, WITH, NOW THAT WE HAVE OUR FISCAL YEAR 2023 BUDGETS TO BE ABLE TO HIRE INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL BE, IF NOT 100% DEDICATED TO THESE INITIATIVES, AT LEAST THE PRIMARY JOB DESCRIPTION, UH, COMPONENT WILL BE TO SUPPORT THE COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM, AS WELL AS THE GREEN TEAM.

SO WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING ABLE TO BRING ADDITIONAL STAFF AND CONSULTING RESOURCES ON BOARD, UM, HERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE SO THAT WE CAN ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY AND THE OTHER STAKEHOLDERS AS EARLY AS THIS SUMMER.

AND THOUGH THAT IS, I UNDERSTAND A VERY, VERY HIGH LEVEL UPDATE, UM, ON THE, UM, ON THE EIGHT DIRECTIVES FROM THE CITY COUNCIL'S OFFICES.

AND I'M PLEASED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS OR WE CAN CONTINUE ON WITH THE CALLS.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO, SORRY, LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO QUESTIONS ON THE DIRECTIVES, AND THEN WE'LL GO ON TO PERFECT.

THE REMAINDER COMMISSIONER'S QUESTIONS FOR TRACY ABOUT THE DIRECTIVES, WENDY? YEAH, I, WELL, I, I KNOW THAT YOU HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH REQUESTING THESE DIRECTIVES AS A RESPONSE TO THE, UM, COMMUNITY OUTREACH FOR THE JET FUEL FACILITY, AND I WONDERED WHETHER THERE, THERE IS INFRASTRUCTURE AT THE CITY ALREADY IN TERMS OF BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS.

THERE'S AN ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION, THERE'S AN URBAN TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION, THERE ARE JOINT COMMITTEES THAT OFTEN REVIEW THINGS, AND I WONDERED WHETHER WE MIGHT HAVE HAD A WORKING GROUP ESTABLISHED FROM THIS BODY QUICKLY OR MORE TIMELY AS TO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE FISCAL YEAR.

WE, WE, WE, IT'S, IT'S NOW MARCH.

WE'VE WAITED SINCE OCTOBER OF 23 FOR THE FUNDING.

THERE'S FUNDING FOR THIS WORK, AND YOU'RE ONBOARDING A CONSULTANT, AND THERE'S EXPERTISE IN THE COMMUNITY NOW, AND THEY'RE PEOPLE WHO ARE AFFECTED NOW THAT WE JUST KEEP PUSHING IT FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD.

AND I'M NOT SURE THAT THE RESOLUTION'S GONNA BE BETTER WITH MORE TIME.

THAT, THAT MAYBE THERE'S AN URGENCY NOW RATHER THAN, UM, TO WAIT TILL, UH, THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION HAS THE RIGHT PERSONNEL TO ASSIGN TO THIS, AND STILL YET UNDETERMINED WHO'S WOULD SERVE WHEN THE CITY HAS NATURAL, UM, UH, STAKEHOLDERS IN PLACE.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UH, COMMISSIONERS THAT ARE WITH US VIRTUALLY.

ALL RIGHT.

I'VE GOT A COUPLE QUESTIONS.

UM, DIRECTIVE FOUR, UH, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE, WE HAVE, UH, MS. ISIS'S COMMENTS THAT NEIGHBORS HAVEN'T BEEN INVOLVED IN THAT PROCESS.

UM, HOW ARE WE YET? WE DO HAVE A PRETTY GOOD BUDGET FOR THAT.

SO ARE WE, ARE WE LOCKED INTO THAT DESIGN OR ARE WE GOING TO FURTHER ENGAGE NEIGHBORS? UM, THERE'S NO DESIGN IN PLACE AND, UM, THE, UM, THE BUDGET WAS ESTABLISHED, UM, WITH THE AIRLINE CONSORTIUM OS FUELS, UM, THE, THE FENCE IS, UM, DECORATIVE AND A SECURITY FENCE AS WELL.

UM, WE DID, UM, VARIOUS OPTIONS WITH THEM TO ESTABLISH A BUDGET.

UM, UM, COULD BE FROM, UM, INDUSTRIAL HYATT INDUSTRIAL LOOKING TYPE OF, UH, FENCE FOR SECURITY REASONS, A MIXTURE OF, OF, UM, UH, LANDSCAPING, UM, DECORATIVE, BUT ALSO SECURITY.

AND THEN, UM, UH, CHAIN LINK, UM, WITH LIKE BOB WIRE, LIKE THOSE WERE LIKE HIGH LEVEL CONCEPTS.

WE'VE DEFINITELY PICKED, UM, THAT WE DON'T WANT THIS, UM, INDUSTRIAL, UH, A SECURITY TYPE LOOKING, UM, FENCE.

A PUBLISH A, A BUDGET HAD TO BE ESTABLISHED BECAUSE A PARTNER IS, UM, UM, AUSTRALS WAS PAYING FOR IT.

DOES THAT MEAN A DESIGN? A DESIGN NOT, HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED.

AND I DON'T THINK IT MEANS THAT, UM, A BUDGET IS, UM, UH, THAT THE BUDGET DICTATES THE DESIGN.

SO IF THERE'S SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AS WE ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY, THIS IS JUST A STARTING POINT WHEN WE KICK OFF PROJECTS, AS WE DEVELOP THAT, WHAT IS NEEDED AND WHAT THE, UM, THE AIRPORT CAN PAY FOR, IN ADDITION TO THAT WILL BE EVALUATED AS WE ENGAGE THE, THE TEAM MEMBERS.

SO THIS WAS JUST INITIAL SCOPE, SO WE COULD BRING ON THAT DESIGNER THROUGH THAT CONTRACT WITH OUR PARTNERS.

SO THE QUESTION IS, IS THERE PLANS TO SIGNIFICANTLY ENGAGE THE NEIGHBORS IN THE DESIGN? IN THAT DESIGN? YES.

YEAH.

THO THOSE PLANS ARE IN PLACE, AND THERE IS NOT A DESIGN, THERE WAS JUST A CONCEPT TO CREATE A BUDGET, AND THERE

[00:35:01]

IS FLEXIBILITY ON WHAT THAT NEEDS, LIKE WITH THE ENGAGEMENT WHEN THAT, WHEN THAT'S WHEN THAT STARTS.

SO LAUREN WILL COUNT ON YOU TO LET US KNOW.

YES.

IF YOU'RE NOT HEARING BACK FROM US.

YES.

OKAY.

THERE, THERE WERE SOME TERMS AND CONDITIONS WITH OFF FUELS THAT HAS TO BE IN PLACE, UM, OKAY.

UM, WITH THOSE, UH, REIMBURSEMENT AGREEMENTS, THOSE SORTS OF CONTRACTS THAT WE HAD TO GET INITIATED, AND NOW WE'LL START THIS PROCESS.

SO, YEAH.

AND LET ME REMIND, LET US, LET ME REMIND ALL OF US THAT WE HAVE A VERY ROBUST PUBLIC ARTS BUDGET YES.

THAT WE SHOULD NOT OVERLOOK.

NO, THIS HAS BEEN PART OF THE CONVERSATION AS WELL.

UM, WHAT THAT WOULD NEED TO BE OR LOOK LIKE.

UM, WE'VE HAD THOSE CONVERSATIONS WITH, UM, UM, THOSE PARTNERS.

UM, I THINK EVERYTHING, YOU KNOW, RECEIVING THAT FEEDBACK AND WHAT IT NEEDS TO, WHAT IT NEEDS TO BE, THOSE ARE THE NEXT STEPS.

SO WE, WE DEFINITELY, UM, PLAN TO INCORPORATE AS MUCH AS WE CAN.

GOOD.

UM, OUT THERE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

UM, MOVING ON TO, TO DIRECTIVE SIX.

SO, UM, AND TRACY AND I TALKED ABOUT THIS YESTERDAY.

WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS, AND LAUREN, YOU BROUGHT IT UP AND I KNEW IT WOULD BE A QUESTION, IS THE NO MITIGATED MITIGATION OPTIONS FROM F FAA.

SO BECAUSE OF OUR INABILITY TO TRANSFER MONIES FROM THE AIRPORT, WITH THAT SAYING, MY UNDERSTANDING, TRACY, WHAT THAT'S MEANT TO SAY IS THE AIRPORT CAN'T SPEND ITS MONIES IN THOSE MANNERS.

AND KNOWING WHEN THE MAYOR, UM, THE PREVIOUS MAYOR, MAYOR ADLER, ADDED THIS AS A DIRECTIVE, IT WAS ALWAYS INTENDED THAT AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME, THAT, UM, IF WE NEED TO GET INTO CON CONVERSATIONS ABOUT, UH, MITIGATION LIKE ACQUISITION PROPERTIES, THAT EITHER THE CITY OR THE AIRLINES WOULD BE THE RESPONSIBLE PERSONS FOR THAT.

SO THIS ISN'T SAYING THAT THE AIRPORT DOESN'T PLANT THAT, THAT NOTHING NEEDS TO BE DONE.

IT'S SAYING THE AIRPORT DOESN'T LEAD IN THIS ROLE, THIS IS CITY AND OR AIRLINES.

SO JUST TO CLARIFY, THANK YOU, CHAIR.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THAT.

SURE.

UM, I KNOW THAT THE, WHEN BERKSHIRE BECAME THE AIRPORT OR MUNICIPAL AIRPORT, THAT THERE WAS A CONDEMNATION OF DEL VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL AND SOME OTHER PROPERTIES.

WAS THAT A CITY INITIATIVE OR WAS THAT, WAS THAT AN AVIATION BUYOUT? UM, THAT WAS THROUGH THE FAA.

THE FAA FUNDED THAT THROUGH THEIR NOISE PROGRAM.

SO, UM, WE MET THE THRESHOLDS ON THAT PROJECT.

UM, THIS PARTICULAR EXPANSION PROGRAM, WE ARE NOT MEETING THE THRESHOLDS TO QUALIFY FOR THOSE FUNDING FOR THAT FUNDING FROM THE F FAA.

BUT I GUESS IF PROBLEMS WERE FOUND, WHICH WE DON'T EXPECT, UM, THAT THAT COULD CHANGE THE CALCULUS.

YEAH.

THESE ARE NOISE THRESHOLDS.

ALRIGHT.

AIRCRAFT NOISE.

OKAY.

GOOD POINT, WENDY.

UM, OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ON THE DIRECTIVES? OKAY.

IF NOT, LET'S MOVE ON TO THE SECOND PART OF THANK YOU PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU, TRACY.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE.

UM, SUMMER SCHINDLER, CHIEF DEVELOPMENT OFFICER.

UM, I JUST THOUGHT WE WOULD, UM, THE GOAL WAS TO JUST HIGHLIGHT OUR CURRENT SUSTAINABILITY EFFORTS, UM, THAT THE AIRPORT, UM, IS LEADING.

ARE WE? OKAY.

UM, AND I DO WANNA NOTE THAT, UM, THE TEAM THROUGH KANE'S LEADERSHIP IS, UM, EVALUATING OUR CURRENT GOALS WITH THROUGH THE A E D P.

UM, SO, UM, THAT EFFORT IS UNDERWAY.

UM, HE JUST TOLD ME THE DRAFT IS DUE NEXT WEEK.

SO I'M, I'M EXCITED TO, TO GO THROUGH THOSE, UM, THOSE, UM, CONVERSATIONS WITH THE TEAM.

UM, SO THERE WILL BE ENHANCED, UM, GOALS HERE.

UM, MORE INITIATIVES AND METRICS THAT WE, WE PLAN TO, UM, COMMUNICATE WITH YOU GUYS, BUT ALSO ENGAGE EVERYONE ELSE ON SALT.

UM, BUT THERE ARE EIGHT POINTS HERE, UM, IN OUR, OUR GOALS AND INITIATIVES.

WE'LL JUST GO THROUGH THOSE, UM, HIGHLIGHTS.

UM, WE'RE STARTING WITH REDUCED LANDFILL WASTE, UM, CAMPUS-WIDE RECYCLING AND COMPOSTING, UM, REDUCED SINGLE, UH, OCCUPANCY TRIPS, WATER COMPA, UM, CONSERVATION.

UM, WE DO HAVE RECLAIMED WATER PROGRAM HERE.

AND WE ALSO, UM, CONVERT IRRIGATION TO, UH, NON DRINKING WATER FOR THE AIRPORT COOLING SYSTEM.

SO, UM, I THINK, UH, USE OF THE GRAY WATER ON THE AIRPORT, UM, IS, IS A, IS A BIG HIGHLIGHT.

UM, UH, FEW AIRPORTS DO THAT.

UH, IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT WE'RE DOING THAT AS WELL.

REDUCE OUR ENERGY USES.

UM, WE'RE ALREADY POWERED BY WIND ENERGY

[00:40:01]

AND, UM, WE DO HAVE SOLAR PANELS ON SITE.

UM, SO THAT WILL BE SOMETHING THAT WILL BE DEFINITELY PART OF, UM, AS WE CAN EVALUATE, UM, PART OF ADP WHEN WE, UM, UM, WHERE WE'RE AN APPROPRIATE, UM, AS WELL.

UM, WE CURRENTLY HAVE SOME COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS, UM, UH, THROUGH OUR SOLAR PROGRAM AND OUR, UM, CONCESSION FOOD DONATION PROGRAM AS WELL.

UM, THE ONE REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS.

WE HAVE A CARBON NEUTRALITY DESIGNATION FOR DEPARTMENT AVIATION, FOR OPERATIONS, UM, AND, UM, INTEGRATE SUSTAINABLE PRACTICE INTO BUSINESS PROCEDURES AND AGREEMENTS.

JACKSON, YOU WANNA ADVANCE THE SLIDE? I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT.

THAT'S A GOOD, THAT'S OKAY.

UM, SO WE HAVE REQUIREMENTS FOR AIRLINES TO ELECTR, UH, ELECTRIFY THEIR GROUND SERVICE EQUIPMENT.

WE, IN, UM, ENHANCING OUR CLEAN POWER PURCHASING BUSINESS PARTNERS TO OFFSET CARBON EMISSIONS FROM FLY AND MEASURES TO REDUCE SINGLE USE PLASTICS AT CONCESSIONS.

UM, AND THEN ALSO SUSTAINABLE PLANNING DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES.

UM, WE CURRENTLY LEAD CERTIFIED AUSTIN ENERGY GREEN BUILDING.

WE PLAN TO, IN THE FUTURE TO ADD ENVISION, THAT'S CERTIFICATION ON INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS.

IT IS, UM, SIMILAR TO OUR, UM, LEAD, UM, BUT IT IS FOR, UM, THOSE CIVIL PROJECTS, UM, WITH A, A, UM, ENHANCED COMPONENT, UM, ON SOCIAL IMPACTS AS WELL.

AND IN THAT ACCREDITATION, WE'RE ALSO LOOKING TO DO OUR NEW TERMINALS AND IN PASSENGER SPACES TO BE WELL CERTIFIED.

AND THAT'S TO LOOK AT THE OVERALL WELLNESS AND HEALTH OF OUR BUILDINGS, UM, AS WELL.

UM, SO THOSE ARE ADDITIONAL EFFORTS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT AS WELL AS, UM, TO MINIMIZE, UM, UH, UH, UM, SOME PRACTICES IN THE CONSTRUCTION ASPECT OF, OF HOW DO WE BUILD, UH, REUSE SOME MATERIALS, KEEPING THINGS ON SITE, THOSE SORTS OF THINGS.

SO WE PLAN TO DO SOME ENHANCEMENTS ON THIS.

UM, WE WOULD LIKE TO START HAVING METRICS ON THIS SO THAT WE CAN MEASURE WHERE WE ARE IN OUR GOALS AS BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE COME, UM, ON.

AND SO, UM, I'M EXCITED ABOUT THOSE NEXT COUPLE STEPS ON THAT.

SUSTAINABILITY AND COMMUNITY INITIATIVES.

UM, THERE'S A BIG DAY WITH EARTH DAY AND THAT IS LED BY KANE AND HIS TEAM.

SO, UM, IF YOU WANNA COME ON OUT, UM, TO THE AIRPORT DURING EARTH DAY, WE, WE WELCOME YOU OUT THERE.

UM, WE JUST FINISHED OUR FIRST HEART FOR COMMUNITY FOOD DONATION DRIVE THAT WAS DRIVEN BY, UM, OUR EMPLOYEES.

I'M VERY PROUD OF THAT EFFORT.

AND, UH, WE'VE BEEN ABLE, I THINK IT WAS OVER SIX TONS OF FOOD, UM, THAT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO, UM, TO DO IN THE MONTH OF, UH, FEBRUARY.

THE TRAVELER PROGRAM, PROMOTION, PROMOTION, ENERGY ALTERNATIVES.

UM, WE HAD OUR FIRST OPEN HOUSE IN JANUARY.

UM, WE PLAN TO CONTINUE THOSE OPEN HOUSES, UM, AT LEAST A MINIMUM OF TWICE A YEAR AND MEET THE COMMUNITY WHERE THEY'RE AT, UM, AS WELL.

AND THEN, UM, THE GOAL IS TO KICK OFF THE GREEN TEAM, UM, AS WE GET APPLICATIONS AND, AND START THAT PROCESS.

SO A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT EARTH DAY, YOU'LL SEE, UH, OUR ENVIRONMENTAL TEAM IN THOSE PICTURES APRIL 21ST.

UM, SO, UM, THE GOAL HERE IS TO APPROACH SUSTAINABILITY TO OUR TRAVELERS.

SO REALLY EDUCATE ON THE GOOD TRAVELER PROGRAM WITH EVERYBODY, UM, OF THE PASSENGERS, UM, AND, UH, TO ALSO GO OVER SOME, A GOOD HABITS TO HAVE AS WELL.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF KANE HAS ANY MORE PROMOTIONS ON THAT DAY THAT HE WANTS TO GO OVER, BUT, UM, THAT'S A BIG DAY, UH, FOR OUR TEAM.

AND, UM, THAT'S ONE WE LIKE TO ENGAGE ALL WITH WITH OUR PASSENGERS.

YEAH, IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO HEAR FROM THEM AS WELL.

WHERE ARE WE DOING, YOU KNOW, WHERE DO WE NEED TO DO IMPROVEMENTS? YOU KNOW, WHERE, WHERE, WHERE ARE, WE'RE DOING WELL.

SO I THINK IT'S, YOU KNOW, WE'RE RIGHT OUT THERE WITH THE PASSENGERS, SO, AND THOSE, I MEAN, I'M OPEN TO QUESTIONS, FEEDBACKS, UM, ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE, UM, UNDER THE UNDERWAY ON ENHANCING THESE PROGRAMS. UM, I THINK IT'S A PERFECT TIME TO GET FEEDBACK AND COMMENTS SO WE CAN INCORPORATE THOSE.

JEREMY? YEAH, I JUST HAVE A QUESTION.

UM, IN THE FUTURE, COULD WE HAVE A UPDATE ON THE USAGE OF THE CARBON OFFSET PROGRAM? OKAY.

I'VE JUST, I'VE, I'VE ALSO HEARD MIXED REVIEWS ABOUT HOW MUCH GOOD CARBON OFFSET CREDIT PURCHASES DOES.

UM, BUT I'D BE INTERESTED TO SEE IF THAT'S ACTUALLY, CUZ I BELIEVE I'VE ALSO HEARD THAT WE LED THE WAY ON THAT AS FAR AS HAVING THAT AT THE AIRPORT, LIKE IN THE COUNTRY.

WE WERE ONE OF THE, IF NOT THE FIRST TO DO THAT, WE WERE THE FIRST MEDIUM SIZED AIRPORT.

OH, OKAY.

YEAH, THEY'RE, THE LARGE AIRPORTS HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR A FEW MORE YEARS AND THEN TRENDING BEHIND, UH, EUROPE.

BUT, UM, STILL, NO, IT'S A BIG MILESTONE FOR THE, FOR THE AUSTIN AIRPORT.

OKAY.

YEAH, I'D JUST BE CURIOUS WHAT THE USAGE IS.

OKAY.

[00:45:01]

THANKS COMMISSIONER TODD.

THANK YOU SUMMER, AND THANK YOU, UH, KANE, I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE GOALS.

SOME OF THEM ARE IN HAPPENING AND SOME OF THEM I'M WONDERING ARE WHETHER THEY'RE JUST SORT OF ASPIRATIONAL AT THIS POINT, LIKE THE VAN POOLING, IS THAT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS? YES, THAT'S, THAT'S HAPPENING TODAY, SO, OH, FANTASTIC.

UM, TSA IS A BIG PARTICIPANT.

UM, THE GUARD ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE AIRPORT HAS BEEN A BIG PARTICIPANT.

WE WOULD'VE TO GET SOME NUMBERS BACK TO YOU, COVID NO SURE.

CHANGE THOSE THINGS.

BUT BEFORE COVID, UM, IT WAS A, THEY WERE PRETTY SUCCESSFUL.

WE HAD A LOT OF VANS COMING TO THE AIRPORT, AND CAP METRO'S DONE A GREAT JOB PARTNERING WITH US.

WELL, AND AS MUCH AS WE EVER REPRESENTATIVE FROM AUSTIN TRANSIT PARTNERSHIP BLUE LINE WITH US TODAY, UM, MAYBE THERE'S SOME, UM, OPPORTUNITY FOR EARTH DAY.

UM, OH, ABSOLUTELY.

GREAT IDEA.

YEAH, THAT IS GREAT.

GREAT IDEA.

YEP.

SCOTT, UM, JUST ONE QUESTION ABOUT THE, UH, WASTE THAT'S COMING OUT OF THE, UH, DEMOLITION PROJECTS YOU'VE GOT GOING ON, ON, YOU KNOW, THE NOSE DOCS AND ALL THAT KIND OF THING.

HAVE YOU GOT ANY CONTROL OVER WHERE THAT'S GOING? WELL, UM, ALL THE METAL 100 PERCENT'S GONNA BE SEGREGATED AND RECYCLED.

SO AS YOU KNOW, A LOT OF THE FACILITIES ARE METAL.

UM, A LOT OF CMU CON CONCRETE MASONRY UNITS, SO THAT MOST LIKELY WILL GO TO THE RECYCLING FACILITY AT BURLESON AND 9 73.

SO WE'VE SET SOME PRETTY GOOD GOALS.

UM, I THINK A LOT OF IT'S GONNA BE DIVERTED, SCOTT.

I MEAN, I THINK IT'S GONNA BE UP IN THE 75% OR MORE KIND OF THAT RANGE.

GOOD.

THAT WAS, THAT WAS A BIG ISSUE DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE AIRPORT, AND I THINK YOU GUYS DID A GOOD JOB.

UM, I THINK THE TREND TODAY, 20 PLUS YEARS LATER IS THIS IS, THEY'RE DOING IT.

THEY SEGREGATE THESE THINGS.

IF YOU GO TO ANY, ALMOST ANY SITE MM-HMM.

, YOU CAN SEE ALL THAT REBAR JUST STACKED UP LOOKS LIKE SOME KIND OF ART PROJECT.

SO, YOU KNOW.

GREAT.

UM, SO GOOD.

I THINK YOU SET THE, YOU SET THE GOOD TREND FOR US.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, ONLINE, ANY QUESTIONS? OKAY.

IF NOT, WE'LL MOVE TO THE THIRD PHASE OF THE PRESENTATION AS WE'RE GETTING SET UP.

UH, KANE CARPENTER, I'M THE ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGER OF YOUR AIRPORT.

I'VE BEEN DOING THIS JOB FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

SO, UM, YOU KNOW, WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON COMPLIANCE AND SUSTAINABILITY FOR 20 PLUS YEARS, SO, UM, IT'S KIND OF A LENGTHY PRESENTATION, SO I'M GONNA GO THROUGH SOME SECTIONS A LITTLE QUICKER IF WE WANT TO COME BACK TO ANYTHING.

HAPPY TO DISCUSS ANY OF THE, ANY OF THE TOPICS.

SO I JUST WANTED TO START OFF, UH, THANK YOU, .

ALWAYS FORGET.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UM, SO THIS IS THE EXISTING FACILITY TODAY THAT THE JET FUEL STORAGE FACILITY.

THIS IS RIGHT OUTSIDE OF, UM, UM, THE PARKING AREA.

UM, JUST A GOOD GRAPHIC SHOWS YOU WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.

IT'S BEEN IN PLACE 20 PLUS YEARS.

UM, LOTS OF CONTROLS IN THIS FACILITY.

THE FACILITY HAS BEEN MAINTAINED AND OPERATED VERY WELL.

NEXT SLIDE.

UM, THIS IS OF COURSE WHAT WE'RE BUILDING, UM, UH, THROUGH THE THIRD PARTY CONTRACT AT, AT OUR AIRPORT.

SO, UM, VERY SIMILAR.

WE'LL HAVE MORE CONTROLS THAN THE OLD FACILITY OR THE EXISTING FACILITY.

UM, VERY, VERY HIGH TECH FACILITY.

UM, NEXT SLIDE.

I WANNA START THE CONVERSATION TODAY.

JUST AS, UM, KIND OF A BRIEF EDUCATION ON HOW THE LAWS WORK IN OUR COUNTRY.

UM, DURING THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION, UM, A LOT OF THESE LAWS WENT INTO EFFECT.

SO I WASN'T ALIVE YET WHEN SOME OF THESE WERE, WERE PUT INTO EFFECT, BUT NOT SHORTLY AFTER I WAS.

BUT, UM, THE, THE POINT HERE IS THAT, YOU KNOW, THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1970.

UM, THE CLEAN AIR ACT, 1970, UM, CLEAN WATER ACT.

THESE ARE, THESE ARE DRIVING LAWS OF OUR COUNTRY.

SO I'VE WORKED FOR A GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION FOR A LONG TIME.

IT TAKES A MINUTE FOR US TO TAKE IN NEW REGULATIONS AND NEW PROCESSES AND THEN IMPLEMENT THOSE.

SO WHEN I LOOK AT THIS LIST OF LAWS FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT TO EVEN TEXAS, HOW TEXAS REGULATES ITSELF, UM, IT PROBABLY TOOK ALL OF THE SEVENTIES TO GET THESE THINGS IN PLACE IN THE EIGHTIES, GETTING MUCH BETTER.

MORE LAWS ARE COMING IN IN THE NINETIES, THE TWO THOUSANDS WHEN I CAME OUTTA SCHOOL.

THAT'S WHERE WE'VE REALLY FOCUSED ON, ON COMPLIANCE.

WE'VE BEEN IMPROVING OVER THE YEARS.

AND SO I REALLY FEEL LIKE TODAY A LOT OF THE LAWS REALLY DO A GOOD JOB, EVEN THOUGH SOME PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS, I RESPECT THAT.

BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF REGULATIONS AND THIS FACILITY IS HEAVILY REGULATED.

SO, UM, NEXT SLIDE.

UH, YEAH, SO BRIEFLY TODAY, THE CURRENT PERMITS, WE ALL KNOW THEY WENT THROUGH THE NPA

[00:50:01]

PROCESS.

THEY'VE GOT CITY PERMITS.

UM, THERE'S A CONSTRUCTION STORMWATER PERMIT THAT'S ISSUED BY THE STATE OF TEXAS TO MAKE SURE THE WATERWAYS ARE PROTECTED FROM EROSION AND RUNOFF.

WE HAVE TEXT DOT PERMITS.

WE HAVE, UM, F A A APPROVAL TO MAKE SURE THOSE AIRCRAFT ARE SAFE.

SO THERE'S A SIGHTING PROCESS THAT'S VERY THOROUGH THAT HAS BEEN APPROVED BY F A A TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS FACILITY CAN OPERATE AND NOT IMPACT, UH, AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS.

UM, WE HAVE AIR AUTHORIZATIONS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN ISSUED, UM, ON A DRAFT LEVEL BASED ON THE PROJECTED, UM, THROUGHPUT OF FUEL AT THE FACILITY.

WE HAVE AFD PERMITS FROM HE REGARDING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS.

WE HAVE THE NATIONWIDE PERMIT FOR THE WETLAND, UM, RESTORATION, WHICH IS THE, THE MUD RELEASE.

SO WE FOLLOWED THAT PERMIT.

WHEN WE GO INTO EFFECT, OR WHEN THE FACILITY GOES INTO OPERATION, WE'RE GONNA HAVE SPILL RESPONSE PLANS CERTIFIED BY ENGINEERS.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE PLANS PROVIDED TO EPA REGION SIX ON HOW WE'RE GONNA RESPOND TO A RELEASE.

WE'LL HAVE A NEW T P DS DISCHARGE PERMIT THAT'S ON THE INDUSTRIAL SIDE.

WE'LL HAVE TO FOLLOW WASTE REGULATIONS.

UM, THERE'S AN EMERGENCY.

THIS IS A BIG LAW, AND THIS IS RELATED TO THE COMMUNITY EMERGENCY PLANNING COMMUNITY, RIGHT TO NO ACT BACK IN THE EIGHTIES THAT WAS PASSED.

AND THAT'S WHERE WE NOTIFY THE COMMUNITY, UM, THROUGH A F D AND THROUGH THE T C Q OF ALL THE CHEMICALS OF CONCERN AT OUR FACILITY.

SO THE WHOLE AIRPORT DOES THAT TODAY.

SO YOU CAN GO LOOK AND SEE ALL THE CHEMICALS AT THE AUSTIN AIRPORT FROM AMERICAN AIRLINES TO AUSTIN TO THE, TO THE GUARD, TO US BEING THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION THAT IS IN PLACE TODAY.

THEY'RE GONNA REPORT THOSE OUT.

UM, OUR PARTNER, THE WATERSHED DEPARTMENT, IS GONNA ISSUE THEIR OWN PERMIT TO THIS ENTITY.

THEY ISSUE A PERMIT TO US AS A DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION TO BE ABLE TO OPERATE THE AIRPORT.

SO THAT'S A LOT.

UM, I'M GONNA GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

WE CAN COME BACK, BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF PERMITS AND A LOT OF OVERSIGHT OF THE SITE.

YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THIS ONE VERY WELL, BUT THESE ARE REALLY SUMMARIZING ALL THE OVERSIGHT INSPECTIONS THAT ARE GONNA OCCUR.

UM, WHEN THIS FACILITY GOES INTO OPERATIONS, A LOT OF THOSE ARE ASSOCIATED WITH STORM WATER.

UM, THEY'LL HAVE QUARTERLY AND ANNUAL INSPECTIONS ISSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF AVIATION.

WE'LL DO THAT.

UM, WATERSHED WILL DO SOME OF THAT.

AFD WILL BE OUT QUARTERLY AS REQUIRED BY OUR PART 1 39.

UM, UH, PERMIT.

IT'S NOT REALLY A PERMIT, BUT OUR AUTHORIZATION, UM, THROUGH FAA TO OPERATE THE AUSTIN AIRPORT.

THEY'RE GONNA BE OUT LOOKING TO SEE IF ANY EQUIPMENT IS LEAKING, IF THERE ARE ANY PROBLEMS WITH EQUIPMENT, IF THERE ARE ANY POTENTIAL LEAKS OR FIRE HAZARDS.

SO THAT'S A GREAT OVERSIGHT THAT AFD IS OUT THERE EVERY QUARTER DOING THAT.

AND SO, UM, WE HAVE THIRD PARTY OVERSIGHTS THAT WE HIRE CONSULTANTS TO COME IN, UM, THAT ARE ENVIRONMENTAL PROFESSIONALS TO AUDIT FACILITIES AS WELL.

UM, SO NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING.

UM, AND THIS ALIGNS WITH HOW INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES OPERATE.

UM, SO WE ARE GONNA HIRE A THIRD PARTY ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTANT.

THEY'RE GONNA HAVE ALL THE PROPER TRAINING, ALL THE PROPER CREDENTIALS TO GO IN AND DO AN ENVIRONMENTAL AUDIT OF THIS FACILITY.

UM, THEY'LL BE LOOKING AT COMPLIANCE RECORDS.

THEY'LL BE LOOKING AT, UM, PERMITS.

THEY WILL HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE FACILITY INSPECTION WHERE THEY'RE LOOKING FOR ANY POTENTIAL RELEASES.

UM, WHAT HAPPENS IS THEN THERE'S A REPORT ISSUED.

UM, AND THEN WE'LL GET THAT AND WE CAN SHARE THAT WITH THE COMMUNITY TO IMPROVE OUR TRANSPARENCY.

WE'RE PROPOSING THAT TO BE ANNUALLY RIGHT NOW.

UM, WE THINK THAT'S ADEQUATE WITH ALL THE OTHER AUDITS.

UM, AND SO THIS, THIS SLIDE'S A LITTLE BUSY, SO I'M SORRY, BUT I WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE WE'VE, WE DO THIS TODAY ALREADY WITH THE LAST TIME WE DID IT WAS IN 2020 FOR THE EXISTING FACILITY.

THIS CONTRACTOR DID THE AUDIT.

THE TABLE OF CONTENTS IS REALLY THERE FOR YOU GUYS, UH, FOR BACKUP TO SHOW YOU THAT THERE IS A REPORT.

AND I'M PRETTY SURE THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVIDED TO THE COMMUNITY THROUGH THE P I R THAT WE RECEIVED, UM, MAYBE LAST YEAR.

SO, SO WE ALREADY HAVE A TREND OF THIS.

WE'RE PROPOSING TO CONTINUE THAT, UH, NEXT SLIDE.

SO WHEN WE GET THIS REPORT BACK, IF THERE'S A COMPLIANCE ISSUE, THAT MEANS THEY'RE NOT DOING AN INSPECTION, THEY'RE NOT REPORTING SOMETHING OR TRACKING SOMETHING THAT'S AN ISSUE.

SO WE'RE, YOU KNOW, THAT MAY REQUIRE US TO REPORT THEM TO A REGULATORY AGENCY, THE T C Q, THE CITY OF AUSTIN, THE EPA.

UM, WE NEED TIMELINES FOR COMPLIANCE.

UM, THIS, YOUR AIRPORT HAS VERY ROBUST LEASE LANGUAGE, UH, ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL FRONT.

SO THAT'S A VIOLATION RIGHT THERE.

SO THAT'S AN ISSUE FOR THEM JUST TO OPERATE WITH US.

UH, BEING THE CITY OF AUSTIN, THERE COULD BE PENALTIES AND FINES JUST BASED ON NOT HAVING THE RIGHT PAPERWORK OR THE RIGHT PERMIT.

SO THAT'S ONE AREA.

SECONDLY, PART OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO LOOK FOR RELEASES.

IF WE FIND A RELEASE, WE'RE GONNA GO INTO INVESTIGATION MODE.

THAT'S WHERE WE REALLY GO OUT.

UM, AND THIS COULD BE A

[00:55:01]

POTENTIAL RELEASE.

I MEAN, THEY DON'T HAVE AN INVENTORY.

THEIR INVENTORY TRACKING SYSTEM IS NOT SHOWING WHERE ALL THE FUEL WENT.

THAT'S A PROBLEM FOR US.

SO WE'RE GONNA GO OUT, THIS IS WHERE WE START THE INVESTIGATION.

IS IT GONNA INCLUDE SOIL SAMPLING? IS IT GONNA, UM, WE'RE GONNA LOOK FOR THE SOURCE OF THIS RELEASE IF THERE IS ONE.

THAT'S WHERE WE COULD GO INTO GROUNDWATER SAMPLING AS PART OF THAT DIRECTIVE THAT, UM, THAT TRACY WENT OVER.

UM, WE'RE GOING TO, YOU KNOW, CAN INCLUDE STORMWATER SAMPLING, IT CAN INCLUDE AIR SAMPLING.

SO THIS IS A NORMAL PROCESS IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL FIELD OF HOW WE RESPOND TO A RELEASE.

SO THIS KIND OF GETS BACK TO THE DIRECTIVE, AND WE'RE OPEN TO DISCUSS THIS, BUT NORMALLY WE NEED A TRIGGER TO GO OUT AND START SAMPLING MEDIA.

WE DON'T HAVE THAT TODAY, IN MY OPINION, BUT WE CAN DISCUSS THAT, UM, WITH STAKEHOLDERS.

UM, ALL THIS WOULD BE BACK WITH SHARED WITH, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.

ARE YOU SAYING DESPITE THE COUNCIL DIRECTIVE, THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SAMPLE UNTIL THERE'S A TRIGGER? UM, AS AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROFESSIONAL HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR 25 YEARS, WE ARE NOT PROPOSING TO PUT IN A GROUNDWATER MONITORING WELL, WITHOUT, THAT'S A COUNCIL WITHOUT, CAUSE THAT'S A COUNCIL DIRECTIVE.

WELL, THAT'S WHAT I'M, THAT'S WHAT I'M STATING THAT YOU'RE NOT GONNA COMPLY WITH THE COUNCIL DIRECTIVE.

WE ARE GONNA COMPLY WITH THE COUNCIL DIRECTIVE FOLLOWING THE PROTOCOLS THAT ARE ESTABLISHED IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL FIELD.

SO THE AIRPORT HAS MONITORING WELLS ALL OVER IT.

WE HAVE NUMEROUS JUST CAUSES WHY WE PUT IN THESE MONITORING WELLS FROM SCOTT'S OPERATIONS BACK IN THE DAY.

WE HAVE MONITORING WELLS FROM THAT TIME.

THERE'S A REASON TO PUT IN A MONITORING.

WELL, IF COUNCIL, IF SOMEBODY COMES BACK AND SAYS, YOU WANT TO DO, PUT US PUT A MONITORING WELL AND START GRABBING SAMPLES FROM WATER, WE CAN DO THAT.

BUT THERE'S NO REASON TO DO THAT.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT THEY SAID.

I, I, THAT'S WHAT COMMISSIONER'S COUNCIL MEMBER TOVO DIRECTED.

I DON'T WANT TO DISAGREE WITH YOU.

I'M JUST SAYING THIS IS WHAT, THIS IS THE PROCESS THAT WE WOULD GO THROUGH IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGING ENVIRONMENTAL, UM, DOING AN ENVIRONMENTAL AUDIT AND MANAGING YOUR AIRPORT TODAY.

SO, UM, SO, SO, UH, CAN JUST OVER HERE.

YES, SIR.

SO BASICALLY, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A TANK, YOU KNOW HOW MANY GALLONS YOU PUT IN THAT TANK? THAT'S CORRECT.

AND YOU KNOW HOW MANY GALLONS YOU TOOK OUT OF THE TANK.

THAT'S CORRECT.

AND IF ALONG THE TIME YOU REALIZE, I PUT A THOUSAND GALLONS IN THE TANK AND THE TANK IS EMPTY AND I NEVER TOOK ANYTHING OUT, THAT'S WHEN YOU SAY, LET'S GO MONITOR.

THAT WOULD BE, THAT WOULD BE A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE.

AND WE WOULD DO THAT.

LIKE THERE'S A RELEASE, YOU KNOW, THERE'S POTENTIALLY A RELEASE.

WE NEED TO GO DO SOMETHING.

AND THAT'S, THERE'S A TEAR IN THE LINER IN THAT CONTAINMENT SYSTEM.

I'M NOT GONNA SHOW YOU A PICTURE OF.

THAT'S A PROBLEM FOR US IN THAT STANDARD PRACTICE AT TANK FARMS IN ANY VARIETY OF SETTINGS, NOT JUST IN AN AIRPORT.

THAT'S THE, THAT'S THE STANDARD FOR CLOSING BERGSTROM AIR FORCE BASE AND CONVERTING IT TO AUSTIN BERGSTROM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

SO, I MEAN, WE'RE TALKING THE, THE ONE OF THE LARGEST, MOST SUCCESSFUL CONVERSIONS OF A BASE IN THE COUNTRY.

THIS, THIS AIRPORT IS A SUCCESS STORY.

ABSOLUTELY.

THANKS.

YEAH.

WENDY, THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

AND I AM, I STILL GOT MORE IF YOU WANNA KEEP GOING.

OH, I KNOW.

WELL, THANK YOU TO THE PRESENTATION TO THIS POINT.

UM, I'M CONFIDENT THAT, THAT YOU ARE COMPLIANT WITH WHATEVER RULES AND REGULATIONS ARE MM-HMM.

IN EXISTENCE.

I THINK YOU'VE PRETTY MUCH SAID THAT SOME OF THEM ARE 50 YEARS OLD AND, UM, MAYBE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN UPDATED, AND MAYBE SOME OF THEM ARE NOT IN KEEPING WITH THE KIND OF PROPRIETARY EQUIPMENT THAT'S GONNA BE PLACED ON THE SITE.

AND I, I'M, I'M JUST CONCERNED THAT, UM, WE ARE MEETING THE STANDARDS FOR SURE MM-HMM.

, BECAUSE YOU ARE REQUIRED TO MM-HMM.

, BUT I, I'M MORE INTERESTED TO KNOW WHERE WE'RE EXCEEDING THE STANDARDS OF REGULATION AND REPORTING.

WHEN, AND I WANNA KNOW WHEN YOU, WHEN YOU BRING UP THE EXISTING LAWS AND REGULATIONS SINCE THE SEVENTIES, UM, IN THE FACE OF RACIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, RACIAL INJUSTICE THAT WE, WE CONTINUE TO SEE TODAY, THE TO AND THEN INCITE IN T C Q, WHICH IS AN ISSUE OF ITS OWN.

UM, I MEAN, LOOK BACK AT, I MEAN, WHAT'S GOING ON WITH CHEMICAL PLANTS, YOU KNOW, THIS WEEK IN OHIO, ALONG THE TEXAS COAST IN 20 20, 20 19, LOOK, THE STATE'S RESPONSE WITH THE WEST FERTILIZER PLANT EXPLOSION, INSTEAD OF ADDRESSING IT, WE ALLOW PEOPLE TO COVER UP WHAT CHEMICALS THEY'RE STORING ON SITE.

SO, UM, YOUR, THIS COMMUNITY HAS THE EXPERIENCE OF PLANT OPERATORS LIVING WITHIN

[01:00:01]

THE QUOTE LETTER OF THE LAW AND WITHIN THE, THE, UM, THE DETECTION SYSTEMS THAT ARE REQUIRED.

AND THEN FINDING OUT THAT THERE'S BEEN GROSS, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION.

SO I, I THINK WHAT COUNCIL ASKED FOR WAS TRYING TO RESPOND TO, AND, AND I TALKED TO MANY OF THEM WHEN THEY WERE COMING UP WITH THESE DIRECTIVES, WAS TALKING TO THE INCREASED CONCERNS OF THE NEIGHBORS AND ASKING US TO DO A LOT MORE THAN WHAT'S REQUIRED AND WHAT IS STANDARD PRACTICE.

WE'RE HAPPY TO NEGOTIATE THAT.

IT'S THE COMMUNITY'S AIRPORT.

I'M JUST TELLING YOU THIS IS, THIS IS HOW YOUR AIRPORT IS OPERATED FOR 25 YEARS.

THESE ARE THE PRACTICES.

IF WE WANT TO GO, IF, IF WE'RE DIRECTED, I'M STAFFED, WE WILL DO IT.

SO THAT'S ANOTHER, AND I THINK COUNCIL NEEDS, WE PROBABLY NEED TO MAKE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS TO COUNSEL AND HAVE THEM COME BACK WITH, UH, GREATER CLARIFICATION OF THEIR INTENTIONS.

UM, AND WITH INVOLVEMENT OF THE NA OF THE NEIGHBORS.

GINA, I'LL, UM, WE'LL TAKE THIS BACK AND, AND, AND DEFINITELY DISCUSS AS A LEADERSHIP TEAM.

OKAY.

UM, AND, UM, AND WE'LL DISCUSS AND, UM, TO SEE WHAT OUR NEXT STEPS ARE.

I MEAN, IT, I HEAR YOU.

UM, UM, I, I HEAR THE CONCERNS AND THE EXPECTATION TO DO MORE.

UM, SO, UM, WE, WE WILL BRING IT BACK.

WE'LL DEFINITELY, UM, DISCUSS WITH OUR, WITH OUR LEADER IN, IN DETERMINING THOSE, THOSE NEXT STEPS ABOUT
