The Gwinnett Board of Commissioners is scheduled to round out appointments Tuesday to the citizens panel that is to review the airport privatization process.
District 1 Commissioner Shirley Lasseter is scheduled to make her two appointments at the regular bi-monthly meeting in Lawrenceville. Lasseter, whose district includes Suwanee, tabled her appointments earlier this month. There will be 11 members of the panel.
The BOC restarted the process for potentially privatizing county-owned Briscoe Field earlier this month. Aside from naming some citizens panel members, the commissioners formally authorized consultants IMG to assist in the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The board scrapped qualifications that firms previously had submitted.
There is no word on when the county actually will issue RFPs for companies wishing to participate in the privatization process, according to county spokesperson Joe Sorenson.
Also, the board is scheduled to accept the resignation of Johnny Barrett from the Airport Authority, according to county documents. His term expires in 2012, and the commissioners will consider a replacement.
In other matters:
- Commissioners will consider an award of $5.55 million for the county's Neighborhood Stabilization Program to acquire, rehabilitate and sell foreclosed single-family housing and/or to acquire, rehabilitate, manage and operate rental housing, according to documents. The contract would be given to three firms, including Gwinnett Window & Door. The funding comes from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and the the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
- The commissioners will consider a contract for the demolition of existing playgrounds and installation of new playgrounds at Pinckneyville Park soccer complex and Jones Bridge Park. This would be through the Department of Community Services, to Southern Playgrounds Inc., for no more than $292,000.00. This would be funded by the 2005 SPLOST Program.
