Insurance

All liability Insurance certificates shall include a transfer of risk provision listing “Spanish Fork City, their elected and appointed officials, employees, volunteers, and agents” as additional insured.  Insurance Policies must include the following limits: $1 million per occurrence, $2 million aggregate.

Vehicles Operating on the Ramp

The operator of any vehicle inside of the Secure Area on the Airport must hold a current Pilots Certificate or be escorted by someone who has a current Pilots Certificate. 

Other persons who need to drive on the field may do so after having been briefed by Airport Management.

A fine of up to $1,000.00 may be levied against anyone driving on the Runway or on Taxiway Alpha Northwest of A2 without prior authorization.

Parking

All vehicles and trailers parked inside the Airport Secure Area for over 60 minutes must display a Parking Decal that is hung on the rearview mirror, or affixed to the windshield.  In the case of a trailer the decal shall be attached to the front of the trailer near the hitch.

Each Hangar Owner and Annual Tie Down Patron shall receive Decals for personal vehicles, and shall parallel park adjacent to the Airport Patrons Hangar or in the Airport Patron’s Tie Down Space so long as the parking location does not restrict centerline movement along any Taxiway/Taxi Lane of any Aircraft.  Commercial Patrons or individuals needing additional parking may obtain additional decals upon establishment of a Parking Plan with the Airport Manager identifying parking locations, signage and striping of the Parking Area.  Signage and Striping shall be the responsibility of the Commercial Patron.  A fee shall also be charged for trailer decals.  During Snow Removal Season, unattended or overnight parking inside the secure area is not allowed unless the vehicle is completely within the Patrons Tie Down space or inside of the Patrons Hangar.  Parking decals will be individually numbered and registered to a specific Patron.  Each Patron shall be personally responsible for improper parking and any related fines for vehicles parked inside the Secure Area of the Airport displaying a decal which was issued to that Patron.

After a warning, a 50.00 fee will be levied against improperly parked vehicles.  If the fee is not paid within 15 days of the violation then the Airport may deny future access for parking.  If the fee is not paid within 90 days then the Airport may seek a civil action in court.  Repeat offenders and those parking in the secure area without a parking decal may have their vehicle towed or booted at the owner’s expense. 

Parking inside the secure area for less than 60 minutes in designated parking spaces shall not require a Parking Decal.

Trailer Parking

Airport tenants (Hangar or Tie Down) may rent an assigned trailer parking space for 20.00 per month so long as space is available in the designated long-term trailer parking area. Other than here and in the public parking lot, no parking will be allowed for longer than 10 days. No RV’s or Camp Trailers may be parked inside the secure area of the Airport unless they are located in a Hangar.

Shared Utilities

Any hangars sharing utilities shall have an agreement in place which provides for maintenance of utility lines, payment of utility bills and in the case of Water, the designation of responsibility for lost water and related damage.  A copy of said agreement shall be filed with the Airport Manager.  Failure to provide an agreement will be grounds for shutting off said utility to the group until this requirement has been met.

Transient Mechanics. 

It is desirable that the majority of Aircraft Maintenance and Repair on the Airport be done by permanently based Mechanics with a place of business on the field.  However, occasionally there is a need to have outside transient mechanics perform work on the Airport.  Said transient mechanics shall be occasionally allowed to work on the Airport Property so long as they:

  1. Have a valid license with the FAA to perform the type of work being done.
  2. Have a business license with another municipality for the type of work being done.
  3. Are performing said work at a location on the Airport being leased by the Owner of the Aircraft being worked on.  In special cases, the Airport Manager may issue written permission for a transient mechanic to perform work at another location on the field other than that being leased by an Aircraft Owner.

Violation of the above conditions will result in a Mechanics right to work on the Spanish Fork Airport being revoked by the Airport Manager.  Reinstatement shall be by petition to the Airport Board.

Development

Applications for airport development shall be accepted once a concept plan and elevation is submitted to the Airport Manager and the application fee established in the City budget is paid. Notice of the application will be published on the airport website within 7 days of acceptance. Competing applications will be accepted for 45 days once posted to the website. Proposals will not be accepted after 40 days.

If multiple applications are received within this time period then an airport application review committee consisting of the Airport Manager, Public Works Director, City Councilman, Community Development Director and Airport Board Chairman shall interview applicants and review updated concept plans and elevations. A recommendation to the Airport Board will be due 15 days after the 45 day advertising phase.

The Airport Board then recommends approval or disapproval to the City Council. A proposed lease agreement is placed on the city council agenda. Once a lease agreement is approved and signed by the Mayor then the applicant has 180 days to obtain a building permit for the development. Lease payments will begin once a building permit is issued. The first year’s lease payment shall be prorated according to the date the building permit is issued.

Lease may be terminated if there is no progress for more than 12 months. Special consideration may be granted by the Public Works Director for issues such as wetland mitigation. Projects without a phasing plan must be fully completed in 2 years with a Certificate of Occupancy issued.
