Clinton County Airport work continues


WILMINGTON — Work continues for the Airport Authority and RS&H — Clinton County Commissioners on Wednesday approved a fourth work order of RS&H Ohio, Inc. Master Consulting Agreement to serve as consultants for the Clinton County Airport Authority.

Matt Shelle of RS&H spoke to commissioners about what they’re currently working on for the Clinton County Airport.

“The project is two parts,” said Shelle. “The one that affects the runway is the installation of perimeter underdrain. The runway, if you go out there, is kind of in a low area. It’s clay soil, so what we did is last year is some joint repair and now this year we’re put in the underdrain to help get rid of the moisture out of that place to minimize the expansion.”

He expects that this will affect the runway for 17 days and the taxiway for nine days.

Melody Waldman of the Airport Authority told commissioners that their grant had been approved by the FAA.

Shelle said they received a grant for the design portion of the project and the new one is for the construction aspect.

In other business:

• Commissioners proclaimed that September 2017 would be Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

The proclamation, read by Steed, said that it’s “a serious crime that affects people of all races, ages, gender, and income level … and affects more than ten million Americans each year.”

It also noted how it affects the lives of children and how it can cost the nation billions in medical expenses and in various other aspects.

“Only as a coordinated community effort will put a stop to this heinous crime,” read Steed. “Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an excellent opportunity for citizens to learn about domestic violence and to show support for the numerous organizations and individuals who provide services.”

Steed then recognized the advocates, volunteers, and workers present at the meeting who work in domestic violence cases.
