BKV to start taxiway repairs, gains tenants

At the August 22, 2017 Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meeting, Airport Manager Kevin Daugherty brought three items of airport business before the board for approval. The first being the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grant offer for the repairs of Taxiway B at the Brooksville Tampa Regional Airport (BKV) this fall. The grant of $1,382,517 will cover 90% of the project. Design and permitting phases have already been completed, and the repairs are estimated to take place over 130 days sometime this fall. The approval of the grant offer passed unanimously.

A long-time airport property tenant, Joni Industries won board approval to refinance with Capital City Bank. The board approved a leasehold mortgage, which is a lien on a tenant’s interest in a lease conveyed to a lender as collateral for a loan to the tenant. The loan will be used for improvements to the lot.

The Commissioners also approved a T-Hangar Lease Agreement With Clearwater Aviation. The Clearwater company, in need of temporary space, will lease Hangar 48 for $650 per month, with a 60-day “out” clause added to the standard lease agreement in case their temporary space need ends sooner than the standard agreement.
