Agenda
Full Packet

  • Proposed 22-23 budget is on the agenda
    • The budget summary provided to the public excludes depreciation expense – this is not in accordance with GAAP*.  Depreciation is a real expense and should be shown in accordance with GAAP*
    • Budget (including depreciation) shows operating loss for both airports of almost $1.2 MM!
    • Operating loss for Oxnard is $1.5 MM
    • OXR budget includes $1 MM for a new fire truck (ARFF).  The only reason this truck is needed is because OXR maintains an approval for passenger service (known as a Part 139 certification).  Since passenger service is no longer provided – and hasn’t been for 14 years – does this significant expenditure make sense?

Agenda Full Packet

  • Proposed 22-23 budget is on the agenda
    • Improvements to Campus Park – the park is located close to the airport/within two airport protection zones so the Authority needs to sign off on this development
      • This development is east of the airport – further from the airport than Teal Club or Portofino – and thus is in the area where plans are generally descending at low power.  As such noise is not a major concern
      • Positive to see a use other than homes this close to the airport
      • The issue of lead from low flying planes descending to land over a public park should be looked at

* GAAP – Generally Accepted Accounting Principles – “The purpose of GAAP is to ensure that financial reporting is transparent and consistent from one organization to another.
