Present : 



Commissioners William E. McDonnell, 
Wallace R. Lynn, Joseph P. Mazzola, 
and William H. Chester.

Commissioner William K. Coblentz. 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of December 16, 1975 
were approved and adopted as presented. 



* 



* 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, explained briefly the main points 
of the proposed 1976-77 budget, pointing out that it is approximately 
$34,000,000, about $1,200,000 over the current fiscal year's budget. 
Mr. Dwyer pointed out the cost of the nine new positions requested and 
emphasized a major increase in the cost of electrical energy. 

Mr. Dwyer stated that he and the staff attempted to keep the budget level 
with the current year for two reasons: one, the major part of staff, over 
the past months, had spent their time attempting to obtain approval of 
the Airport revenue bonds and were successful only the day before; two, 
a new administration, and staff wanted to keep the budget at a bare 
minimum and did not want to begin new projects until there was opportunity 
for discussion with the new administration. 

Mr. Dwyer explained there had been several previous reviews of the budget 
at staff level, although basically it was the same as the current budget. 
He then requested that Mr. Paizis explain the highlights of the proposed 
budget in further detail. 

Mr. William Paizis, Deputy Director for Business and Finance, displayed 
several charts, pointing out there was less than a 4% increase over last 
year's budget in spite of 10 - 12% inflation. Even after adjustment 
due to the $1,000,000 decrease in debt service, the increase is only 
about 7%. 

In response to a question from Commissioner McDonnell, Mr. Paizis 
explained the U-Drive figures, stating the 1975-76 income had been over- 
estimated and that the estimated income . in the proposed budget more nearly 
matched the actual 1976-77 income. In response to further questioning 
by Commissioner McDonnell, Mr. Paizis explained the increase in utility 
figures, that the costs were passed on to the tenants, with the Airport 
netting a very small percentage. 



No. 76-0001 



Resolution approving the proposed 
Fiscal Year 1976-77 operating 
budget of the San Francisco Inter- 
national Airport for official filing 
with the City Controller, in accord- 
ance with Section 6.200 of the 
San Francisco City Charter. The 
proposed budget amounts to $34,042,002.

Mr. Paizis gave explanation of the cost of the nine requested positions, 
and also that Airport security costs dropped $100,000 due to a current 
full complement of Airport police, where formerly it was necessary to 
hire a private security firm. 

Mr. Paizis briefly explained that most of the increased cost was in 
improvements and contractual services, with the biggest item being 
utilities, $728,000 out of $982,466. He further pointed out considerable 
detail on increased costs in Additions and Betterments. 

Mr. Paizis said it was not necessary to budget for the interest on 
revenue bonds for two years, since that interest was covered by bond 
sale proceeds. 

Using pie charts, Mr. Paizis explained that increased payroll costs and 
fringe benefits accounted for 30.82% of the increase, and debt service 
was 30.42% 

Mr. Paizis explained the justification for the new Chief Accountant 
requested in the budget, and Mr. Mike Bagan, Deputy Director for 
Operations and Maintenance, explained in detail the justification for 
the eight other positions requested in the proposed budget. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked several questions about the need for the 
positions, and Mr. Bagan replied that ultimately the Airport would save 
money and be more efficient. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked for questions. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren, from the audience, pointed out that bookcases 
had been requested for Operations, Police, and Public Relations, all 
at different prices. She suggested that this be investigated before 
the budget went on to the Board of Supervisors. 

Ms. Warren questioned the $85,000 item for medical services, asking 
how the clinic was working out. Commissioner McDonnell replied the 
reports he received have been complimentary and explained that this 
subsidized medical services is giving 24-hour coverage, seven days a 
week. Mr. Dwyer further explained that while this item was in the 
last budget, services did not start until about four months ago, so 
that no statistics are available as yet; however, he personally had 
checked on nights and weekends and the service seemed excellent. 

Ms. Warren asked when the interest payments on the revenue bonds would 
begin as this item was not in the proposed budget. Mr. Dwyer explained 
that revenue bonds are structured differently from GO bonds and there 
is no redemption until the structures paid for by the bonds are actually 
generating revenues. When revenue bonds are sold, an additional amount 
is sold to cover interest until the structures provide revenues. 

^s. Warren questioned the $45,000 increase in accident compensation and 
:-lr. Dwyer replied this amount was mainly workmen's compensation and has 
been requested by Retirement System to cover increased costs. 

As. Warren asked if more access roads were planned at the Airport, or 
if there would be any moving of underground facilities, as these could 
be called "county roads" and money obtained for their improvement. 
Nlr. Dwyer responded that it was more important to keep control of the 
roads in order to open and close them as the need arose.

76-2 



Ms. Warren questioned the possibility of incorporation of the Airport, 
and Mr. William Bourne, Utilities General Counsel from the City 
Attorney's office, explained in some detail that this was a legal and 
political impossibility, particularly since the property was not 
continguous to San Francisco City proper. 

Ms. Warren asked what would be the effect if some expense items were 
clipped or deleted. Mr. Dwyer responded that since there were no 
excesses in the proposed budget, any deletions or decreases would 
necessitate requests for supplemental appropriations with the accompany- 
ing justification. 

When Ms. Warren asked if the Airport would request supplemental funds 
between now and the end of the current fiscal year, both Mr. Dwyer 
and Mr. Bagan assured her there would be no such request unless there 
were unforeseen emergencies. 

Mr. A. J. Kaiser, Chairman of the Airlines Policy Committee, asked to 
comment on the budget in general, congratulating the Commission and 
staff on a conservative budget, in view of current inflation. Mr. Kaiser 
asked several questions about items in the proposed budget which were 
answered by Mr. Bagan and Mr. Dwyer. 

Ms. Warren asked if federal subventions ever figured in the proposed 
budget and Mr. Dwyer responded that, while federal monies would be re- 
ceived, none was included as revenues in the budget. 

There bring no further question, the proposed 1976-77 fiscal budget was 
approved unanimously. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0002 Resolution approving Modification 

No. 1, professional services agree- 
ment with D. Jackson Faustman, who 
is presently under contract for 
consulting services in connection 
with vehicular traffic. 

Mr. Dwyer briefly explained the services of D. Jackson Faustman had 
been retained in connection with traffic problems on the Airport, and 
this item was for additional services to contend with the congested 
traffic in front of the United Airlines service areas. 

* * * 



76-3 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester 
the following resolution was adopted: 



Resolution accepting the work under 
Airport Contract No. 766, Centerline 
Touchdown Zone Lighting for Runway 
28R-10L, as satisfactorily completed; 
approving and requesting the Control- 
ler's certification of Credit Modifi- 
cation No. 2 in the amount of $6,965.02; 
extending the completion date from 
October 9, 1975 to November 25, 1975; 
and approving final payment in the 
amount of $74,638.16 in favor of the 
contractor, Rosenden Electric, Inc., 
San Jose, California 95150. 



Mr. Dwyer explained this item marked the completion of a major contract 
which will give the Airport Category III status, as soon as the FAA 
portion Of the work is completed in February. San Francisco International 
will then be one of only three airports in the United States to have this 
classification . 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0004 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications submitted by National 
Car Rental System showing their proposed 
rental car facility on Lot A-l. The 
facility will he located at the main 
entrance road on the plot lying immedi- 
ately west of the Hertz rental car 
service facility. The project will 
consist of constructing a one story 
masonry and stucco building housing 
offices, two car wash stalls, and a 
customer waiting room. Gasoline pumps 
will be located under a detached 
canopy. The estimated cost of this 
project is $300,000. 

Mr. Dwyer and Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director of Engineering, Planning 
and Development, briefly explained the renderings. The work will be done 
by National Car Rental at their expense with no rental credit. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked if this project had been approved by San 
Francisco Airport Architects, and Mr. Lloyd Laity of that firm replied 
the work had been their suggestion. 

Commissioner Mazzola asked if Art Commission approval was necessary, 
and Mr. Dwyer responded affirmatively. 

* * * 



76-4 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0005 Resolution approving the plans and 

specifications for Airport Contract 
No. 1036, Demolition of Old Mainte- 
nance Building and adjacent structures, 
and authorizing the Director of 
Airports to advertise for bids. 

Mr. Dwyer explained this item as a request to demolish the old structures 
which had previously housed maintenance personnel, a necessity in order 
for Flying Tiger and Japan Air Lines to use their 747 cargo jets. 

Commissioner Mazzola suggested that pictures of both the inside and 
outside of these structures be taken, for comparison purposes with the 
new maintenance facility. Mr. Dwyer assured the Commissioner this would 
be done. 

* * * 

Introduction of New Business 

Commissioner Chester stated he wished to make two motions. First, he 
would like to go on record as commending Ms. Marguerite Warren as a 
public-spirited citizen who supports the Airports Commission when she 
thinks it is right, and opposes the Commission when she thinks it is 
wrong. Commissioner Chester said he had learned a lot from Ms. Warren, 
and at the hearing of the Finance Committee before the Board of 
Supervisors, her testimony was so valuable to the Commission that 
Mr. Chester had told Commissioner McDonnell that one of the two should 
resign and let Ms. Warren take his place on the Commission. Commissioner 
Chester told Ms. Warren how deeply he and the others appreciated her 
coming to meetings and giving her input. He continued that if more 
citizens would come to support the Commission when they felt it was right 
and oppose, when they felt the Commission was wrong, it would be a better 
Commission. The motion passed unanimously, to applause by staff and 
audience . 

Commissioner Chester stated his second motion: that the Commission go on 
record as instructing the President of the Commission and the Director 
of Airports to prepare an appropriate resolution thanking the members of 
the Board of Supervisors for approval of the bond issue. He reaffirmed 
that it is the intent of the Airports Commission to make San Francisco 
Airport one of the finest in the country and at all times to live up to 
its fiscal responsibility and to its responsibility as far as the impact 
in the area is concerned. Commissioner Mazzola asked that this be in 
the form of a resolution, including the intention to include all sta- 
tistics upon which the Commission based its recommendation for expansion 
of facilities. The motion passed unanimously. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated that since this was the first meeting of 
the New Year with a new administration, he would like permission to 
institute a resolution to be presented to Mayor Alioto at a future time. 

Commissioner McDonnell explained that one of the Charter amendments 
placed on the ballot in June of 1970, during Mayor Alioto 's term, was 
the major change in making the Airports Commission a separate unit. 
The reorganization began in September 1970 and the program began to 
move ahead.

The Commission has worked closely with Mayor Alioto, not only on 
Airport but on all city matters. The Mayor has been a good friend 
not only to the Commission but to all citizens of San Francisco. 
Commissioner McDonnell expressed real and deep gratitude to the 
Mayor for the manner in which he has backed up the Commission. 

Commissioner McDonnell proposed a motion that such a resolution 
be presented to Mayor Alioto at a place other than City Hall, and 
Commissioner Chester seconded the motion. It passed unanimously. 

There being no further business before the Commission, the meeting 
was adjourned at 3:30 p.m. ^7-

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0010 Resolution accepting the work under 

Airport Contract No. 943, Demolition 
of Cargo Buildings Nos. 3, 4, and

No. 76-0011 Resolution accepting the work under 

Airport Contract No. 85 7, Emergency 
Airfield Pavement Repairs , as

* * * 



76-7 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Coblentz, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0012 



Resolution approving the final 
plans and specifications submitted 
by Hilton Inn, showing expansion 
of its facilities within its lease 
premises at Plot 2. 



Mr. Dwyer stated this is the third time this item has been before the 
Commission and that there have been some changes made in the plans, 
which he asked the architects to explain. 

Mr. Devoto, Manager of Hilton Hotels, and his architect, presented 
the renderings on their plans and explained the work to be done. They 
stated that the work would complement the 500-room expansion which was 
already completed, with major emphasis toward the upgrading of the 
lobby, dining areas, etc. 

Commissioner McDonnell requested they give specific details of the 
changes in the plans as compared with the plans originally presented 
to the Commission. It was pointed out that one of the main changes 
was the height of the sign. To Commissioner McDonnell's question as 
to whether the work was approved by the Airport Architects, there was 
an affirmative reply; the Airport Architects recommended the changes. 

Mr. Robert Lee, Planning & Engineering, stated staff would meet with 
the Hilton architect regarding the height of the sign. 

Commissioner Lynn inquired if the preliminary plans that were approved 
in 1975 included the extension that has been eliminated on the present 
plans. The reply was that they were reduced in size due to excessive 
cost of the original plan. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren stated her concern that the amount of private 
money being spent at the Airport is being based on the assumption 
that the expansion of the airport will continue. She wondered what 
guarantee or protection there was for private investors. There was 
discussion along this line between the Commission President and Hilton 
Manager Devoto, with Mr. Devoto stating that expansion of their hotel 
facilities is not dependent upon expansion of the airport. 

The resolution was adopted contingent upon the approval of the signs 
and the final approval of the Art Commission on the landscaping, etc. 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0013 



Resolution approving progress report 
covering water pollution abatement 
activities for the period October 1, 
1975 through December 31, 1975, in 
compliance with Regional Water 
Quality Control Board Resolution 
No. 767 and directs the Director of 
Airports to transmit same to the 
Board. 



* 



76-8 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0014 Resolution approving the action 

of the Director of Airports in 
settling and compromising claims 
which resulted in payment under 
$2,500.00. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if it was possible to speed up the 
payments on these claims. 

Utilities Gen. Counsel Bourne explained the prescribed legal pro- 
cedures and the amount of time necessarily expended in the processing 
of same. He added that unless some new procedure is initiated, there 
is nothing that can be done to speed up payment of claims. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0015 Resolution approving professional 

services agreement with Peat, 
Marwick, Mitchell & Company, to 
provide services in connection 
with the proposed revenue bond 
issue and with airline negotiations, 
airport rates and charges and the 
Airport Expansion Program, at a 
cost not exceeding $25,000.00. 

Mr. Dwyer stated these services were contracted for to update the 
financial feasibility study, the original report for which was completed 
in March 1973. When this study was originally presented to the Con- 
troller, permission was not granted for the use of certain monies. 
However, at a later time it was approved, but it was then necessary to 
submit an updated study. 

A member of the audience, Mr. Jim Gravanis, asked some questions regard- 
ing what effect this updated study would have on the proposed use of 
the airport in the future. 

Upon inquiry, it was ascertained that Mr. Gravanis is a student at 
USF working on a thesis in municipal financing for his Masters degree. 
Commissioner McDonnell then explained the proposed use of the 
$14 3 million that was approved for the airport expansion and offered 
the cooperation of the Commission and the Airport staff, should he 
need further information. 

* * * 



76-9 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0016 



Resolution approving Modification 
No. 3, Professional Services 
Agreement, with John F. Brown Co., 
which modification extends the 
contract term to June 30, 1976 
and increases the total funds avail- 
able for payment by $7,500.00 to a 
new total of $50,000.00. 



Mr. Dwyer stated it has been necessary to solicit Mr. Brown's services 
more times than had been originally anticipated. 

Commissioner Lynn suggested that both the Brown study and the Peat, 
Marwick, Mitchell & Company studies be expedited as rapidly as 
possible, as he feared that any delay might affect our bond sales. 

Mr. Dwyer said that the Brown study is completed, that the additional 
money is required to set up the final statement, and that the 
Commissioners would be sent a copy as soon as it is available. 

Commissioner Mazzola 'passed' and did not vote. 



Introduction of New Business 

Approval was granted for a resolution to be presented to George Nessel, 
Maintenance Division, on the occasion of his retirement. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 3:30/'"RM.

Call to Order: 



11:00 AM 



Present: Commissioners William E. McDonnell, 

Wallace R. Lynn, William K. Coblentz 
and William H. Chester. 

Absent: Commissioner Joseph P. Mazzola 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of January 20, 1976 
were approved and adopted as presented. 



* * * 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolutions were adopted: 



No. 76-0017 Resolution awarding Series A 

Revenue Eonds to the successful 
bidder and fixing rates of interest 
on the $143,475,000 revenue bonds. 

No. 76-0018 Resolution rescinding two previous 

resolutions for alternate amounts 
of revenue bonds sales ($90,000,000 
and $53,475,000) no longer needed. 

No. 76-0019 Resolution ratifying, confirming 

and approving the minor corrections 
as set forth in the errata sheet in 
the final printed form of the first 
supplemental bond resolution 
(No. 75-0161). 



The Commission Secretary opened the only bid for the sale of revenue 
bonds, submitted by the firm of Blythe, Eastman, Dillon and Associates. 
The enclosed letter stating particular terms of the bid was read by 
Commission President McDonnell. The bid contained a certified good 
faith check in the amount of $500,000. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, informed the Commission that 
the suit brought against the Airport to stop the sale of bonds, was 
decided in favor of the airport and that the Commission was then free 
to proceed with the sale of the bonds. He gave credit for this court- 
room success to the following members of the City Attorney's Office: 
Messrs William F. Bourne, Jerome Cohen, David Kroopnick and James Woods. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked the Airport's bond advisors if they could 
compare the bid before them with those received by other airports. 
Their spokesman stated this was an extremely good bid, that references 
had been checked, and that it would be necessary for him to call New 
York to verify the figures. At this point, action on this item was 
held in abeyance until the verification was complete. In the meantime, 
the Commission proceeded with the next agenda item unrelated to this 
subject. 



(continued) 



76 - 11 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0021 Resolution approving the final 

plans and specifications and 
authorizing bid call for Airport 
Contract No. 950, Boarding Areas 
H & I and Connector. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this proposal has been before the Commission in its 
various stages. It is now being presented for approval of the final 
plans and specifications and authorization of bid call. He then 
asked Mr. Lloyd Laity of the Airports Architects to explain the 
many charts and plans. 

Mr. Laity was in the process of explaining the various aspects of the 
plans and specifications when the representative from the bond advisors 
returned from making the phone call to New York. Mr. Laity was then 
asked to suspend his talk and the Commission returned to the agenda 
items involving the bond issue. 

(to be continued) 

* * * 

Mr. Dwyer stated, when the Airport commenced discussion of the sale 
of revenue bonds, the Commission authorized three alternate resolu- 
tions to cover bond sales in the amounts of $143,475,000, $90,000,000 
and $53,475,000, respectively. The lesser amounts were to be used in 
the event the market could not absorb the single highest amount. It 
was determined that the market could absorb a $143,475,000 sale and 
that the use of the two smaller amounts would not be necessary. The 
third resolution approved minor corrections in the errata sheet. All 
three resolutions were unanimously adopted by those Commissioners 
present. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolutions were adopted: 

No. 76-0020 Resolutions approving sinking fund 

and for General Obligation Bonds and 

No. 76-0020A a Supplemental Budget of $820,000. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the purpose of these resolutions was to comply with 
the Mayor's request that the Airport set aside a sinking fund sufficient 
to accumulate $14,130,000 by June 30, 1988, and to authorize a supple- 
mental budget request in the amount of $820,000 for the fiscal year 
1976-77, which will represent the first payment to the sinking fund. 

Mr. Dwyer gave some of the background of the establishment of a sinking 
fund, stating it was thought by the Mayor's office to be necessary in 
assuring that money would be available to make the payments on the 
General Obligation Bonds and prevent the airport from becoming a burden 
to taxpayers, at the time the landing fee agreements expire. The 
sinking fund, together with the interest accumulated over the years, 
will cover repayment of the G.O. Bonds. 



76 - 12 



Commissioner McDonnell asked if the Airport expected to have 
Federal assistance. Mr. Dwyer answered if Federal funds were 
received, these would be put into the sinking fund. When the 
Commissioner asked if there were any estimates of amount, he was 
told it was approximately $6.8 million and that it would go 
directly into the sinking fund. It would reduce our payments from 
operating funds by that amount. 

Commissioner Lynn questioned the accruing interest and whether the 
amortization would be decreased in that amount. 

Commissioner McDonnell said the revenue bonds would have piority 
over the General Obligation bonds and the sinking fund. 

Utilities General Counsel William F. Bourne stated that the sinking 
fund would come in on a lower priority, but that it is anticipated 
that Airport operations would generate sufficient revenue over the 
coming years to meet this obligation. 

Commissioner Lynn stated there seems to be some discrepancy in the 
figures, that $820,000 in twelve years would only amount to $9 million. 
It was explained to him that the interest earned would bring the total 
to over $14 million. 

Commissioner Chester then asked if the Controller and the City Attorney 
had raised any objections to setting up the sinking fund, and if the 
City Attorney believes all the legal requirements have been met. To 
this, Mr. Bourne replied affirmatively. 

Mr. Al Kaiser, Properties Manager of United Airlines, as well as 
Chairman of the Airlines Policy Committee, stated he had a comment to 
make on behalf of the airlines. He said the airlines are not in favor 
of the sinking fund because it is not necessary to assure that the 
G.O. bonds would be taken care of even after the landing fee agreements 
expire. He added, even if the agreements were not extended, the 
business would still exist and there would still be income generated 
from landing fees, concessions, etc. He pointed out the value of the 
dollar today and compared the 1965 dollar value to the 1988 dollar 
value. He said forecasts show it will be easier to raise money in 1988 
than today. His group feels the legality of the sinking fund has not 
been thoroughly examined from the viewpoint of the airport and that it 
should be further studied. He suggested alternate ways of handling 
the G.O. bonds, and requested that the matter be put over for further 
study, as well as for making satisfactory arrangements with all parties 
concerned. 

Commissioner Coblentz, addressing himself to Mr. Kaiser, stated that 
although he sympathized with the airlines and that this was a difficult 
decision for the Commission to make, if the Commission did not set up 
this fund, approval of the revenue bond issue would have been impossible. 
After much consideration and deliberation, he expressed the view that 
the Commission has a definite moral obligation to approve these two 
items . 

Commissioner McDonnell called for other comments. 

Commissioner Lynn stated his agreement with the other Commissioners on 
the matter, that he felt sympathetic toward the airlines, but the 
revenue bond issue would not have succeeded without establishment of 
the sinking fund. 



76 - 13 



Mr. Jim Chamberlain of Delta Airlines stated this will have a great 
impact on the airlines' cost of operating at San Francisco Inter- 
national Airport. There is a pending report from the consultants 
on airport fees and charges. 

Commissioner Chester stated he agreed with the remarks made by 
Commissioner Coblentz. He said he had not heard that anyone had 
discussed the matter with the new Mayor, and felt this should be 
done by the airline group. 

Commissioner Coblentz suggested that the Commission approve the 
issue but if any new developments occurred the matter could be taken 
up at a future meeting. 

Mr. Kaiser asked about the legal ramifications of establishing a 
sinking fund. In reply he was told it has to go through the same 
steps as any other fund approval, i.e., the Mayor, the Board of 
Supervisors, etc. 

Mr. Ryan stated the airlines have a right to have time for some 
input into the matter. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated he thinks we have a commitment to act 
at this time. Later, if it becomes necessary, the matter can be 
brought back before the Commission for amendment. 

Commissioner Coblentz stressed the time factor, adding that he feels 
the new Mayor is open to suggestions. 

Mr. Fenson of American Airlines asked if it would be possible to 
modify the language of the resolution. 

Commissioner Coblentz stated he would be unwilling to touch this 
resolution. This was the unanimous decision of the Commission. 

Commissioner Lynn stated the Commission is aware of the problems of 
the airlines. 

Commissioner McDonnell requested the airlines to put their thoughts 
in writing and send them to the Commission. 

* * * 

Following a five minute recess, the Commission resumed its hearing 
on Airport Contract No. 950, Boarding Areas H & I and Connector; 
approval of the final plans and specifications and authorization of 
bid call. Mr. Laity returned to his explanation of the charts and 
maps, giving specific and detailed information concerning the plans. 

To Commissioner Coblentz 1 inquiry on lighting improvements, Mr. Laity 
stated there would be better lighting in the areas. He added that 
the scheduled completion time is 22 months and an estimated cost of 
$23 million for Contract No. 950. He was then asked if this would be 
on a single contract and if it was possible that the same contractor 
would win the bid as did the work on Rotunda A. Mr. Laity answered 
this was a possibility. 

Commissioner Lynn then asked what the length of the structure would 
be and was told 800 feet. 



76 - 14 



Commissioner McDonnell asked if the complete graphics and floor 
coverings were included in this contract. He was told they were not; 
that neither the graphics nor the floor finishes were included in 
the contract. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0022 Resolution approving and ratifying 

the action of the Director of 
Airports and requesting the Con- 
troller's certification of Debit 
Modification No. 650B-3 in the 
lump sum amount of $17,769.84, 
which incorporates Change Order 
650E-2 into the contract. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this resolution provides for extra work to accommo- 
date design development changes and to provide additional steel 
framing for future construction; it will also ratify the action taken 
by the Director of Airports. One of the changes involved replacing 
the single doors with double doors to prevent a "wind tunnel". 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0023 Resolution approving the specifi- 

cations for Airport Contract No. 
992, Relamping Light Fixtures, 
Upper Lobby High Ceiling, South 
Terminal Building, and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to 
advertise for bids. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is a recurring contract involving a job that is 
done every three years. This has proven to be the more economical way 
of handling this. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0024 Resolution approving settlement of 

claim against Budget Rent-A-Car 
for $10,113.49. 

Mr. Dwyer explained that the claim arose out of Budget Rent-A-Car's 
damage of the guardrail on the upper level terminal roadway on 
October 15, 1975, and includes the cost of permanent repair. 

* * * 



76 - 15 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0025 Resolution amending Rules of Order 

of the San Francisco Airports 
Commission to conform with Propo- 
sition F of the City Charter, 
adopted November 4, 1975. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0026 Resolution correcting Rules of 

Debate (Rule 17) of the Airports 
Commission Rules of Order. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the purpose of this resolution was to correct a 
clerical error in the Rules of Order. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0027 Resolution approving joint exercise 

of powers agreement between City 
and County of San Francisco and 
County of San Mateo, regarding 
Airport land use study. 

Mr. Dwyer stated there was some question as to who should be the 
City's members of the study committee. It had been suggested by the 
Finance Committee that the San Francisco committee consist of the 
Assistant Deputy Director for Planning and that a member of the 
Airports Commission rather than the President sit on this Joint Powers 
Committee. The Commission agreed to the latter change, but it was 
decided that since the Director of Airports was responsible for the 
overall coordination and operation of the Airport, and the Assistant 
Deputy Director for Planning could coordinate his activities with the 
Director, the Director of Airports should be appointed as a member of 
the Joint Powers Study Committee rather than the Assistant Deputy 
Director for Planning. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0028 Resolution approving the action 

of the Director of Airports in 
settling and compromising claims 
which resulted in payment under 
$2,500. 

* * * 



76 - 16 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0029 



Resolution rescinding bid call, 
Public Service Agreement. 



Mr. Dwyer stated a bid call had been approved by the Commission for 
awarding the public service agreement. However, in view of recent 
events at airports which have caused great concern about the use of 
lockers, the lockers have been removed from service. Therefore, the 
resolution inviting bids must be withdrawn. 



There being no further business before the Commission, the meeting 
adjourned at 12:10 PM.

Mr. William Dwyer , Director of Airports, stated this is the last major 
contract to be paid out of the 1967 General Obligation Ponds. He 
said that out of the 8 bids received, Lathrop' s was the lowest at 
$19,412,491. The high bid was by Perini Corporation at $21,205,000. 
He said the airport was fortunate to hit the market at the right time 
and that the contract has been checked and is ready to go. 

Commissioner McDonnell commented on the small difference in the bid 
amounts. 

* * * 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0031 Resolution accepting the work under 

Airport Contract No. 801, Garage: 
Stage II - Foundations for Additions, 
as satisfactorily completed; approv- 
ing final Modification No. 801-2 in 
the amount of $57,827 to adjust the

of the work authorized under the contract. He said the original con- 
tract figures have been adjusted from $1,360,000 to $1,424,000. The 
third phase is in progress; the fourth phase is the major part of this 
project and will be presented to the Commission within 5 or 6 weeks. 
The design review has begun. 

* * ★ 



76 - 18 



At this point, Commissioner McDonnell, referring to Calendar Item 
No. 1, cited the time of 72 days for the completion of the North 
Terminal Building and inquired if the contract would be completed 
on time . 

Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director, Engineering, Planning and 
Construction, stated his staff felt that it would be completed 
on time; that the work has been put on a computer schedule and that 
each and every operation would be closely monitored. Ke said that 
the Garage schedule is 30 months; the North Terminal schedule is 24 
months and that the entire project will be operational within a 
total tine of 30 months. 

* * * 

Calendar Item No. 3, concerning Construction Management Consultants' 
1976 Budget, was taken off calendar for further study.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

ITo. 76-0033 Resolution approving the revised 

plans and specifications for 
Contract No. 904-R, Improvements 
to Uater Supply System, North Field 
Area, Phase I, and authorizing the 
Director of Airports to readvertise 
for bids. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this contract had been previously approved by the 
Commission, but due to a maze of unknown utilities in the proposed 
right-of-way, which would have resulted in a tremendous increase in 
costs for relocation during the construction, the Commission's 
approval for revised plans and specifications as presented today was 
being sought. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-00 34 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications for Airport 
Contract No. 1033, Extension of 
Electrical Service to Lot A-l, and 
authorizing the Director of Airports 
to advertise for bids. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the purpose of the contract is to bring electrical 
service to the last of the airport's rental car agencies. This will 
give National Car Rental the necessary electrical energy. 

Commissioner McDonnell cited the cost and asked if this was figured 
into the rental. He was told that it was not; that it is the policy 
of the airport to bring the services up to the leased areas without 
charge. This is done for all the- tenants. 

* * * 



76 - 19 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0035 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to call for 
bids on Airport Contract No. 1034, 
Extension of Flectrical Service to 
Plot 2. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the purpose of this contract is to extend and install 
underground high voltage service from electric substation "TA" to the 
Hilton Inn Parking Lot pullbox on Plot 2 to provide additional power 
for their expanded facilities. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0036 Resolution approving Hilton Inn's 

request to change the wording on 
the identification sign to be 
installed above the rotunda to be 
constructed under the Hilton Inn 
Expansion Project from the previ- 
ously approved "San Francisco 
Airport, Hilton Inn" to "Airport 
Hilton" . 

Mr. Dwyer stated at the time the Hilton Expansion project was brought 
before the Commission, approval was based on the premise that the 
sign problem would be handled. We have now come to agreement on the 
sign size and there seem to be no other obstacles in the way of 
compliance. 

The Hilton Architects showed drawings of the proposed Hilton sign. 

Commissioner Lynn asked if the drawings have been approved by the 
Art Commission, and was told that they have been approved. 

When Commissioner McDonnell asked what was the total number of the 
signs, he was told there were three and that they could be seen 
upon arrival to and departure from the airport. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0037 Resolution ratifying the action of 

the Director of Airports in 
approving and requesting the 
Controller's certification of 
Credit Modification No. 3 in the 
amount of $9,804.66, which in- 
corporates Change Order Nos. 
900-3, 900-4, 900-5 and 900-6 
and Bulletin 900-11. 

* * * 



76 - 20 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0038 Resolution accepting the work 

under Airport Contract No. 86 3, 
Repairs to Drainage Outfall 
Structures, as satisfactorily com- 
pleted; ratifying the action of the 
Director of Airports in approving 
and requesting the Controller's 
certification of Debit Modification 
No. 1 in the amount of $770.00; 
approving Debit Modification No. 2 
in the amount of $1,058.39; extend- 
ing the completion date from 
January 31, 1976 to February 13, 
1976; and approving final payment 
in the amount of $4,692.05 in favor 
of the contractor, Power-Anderson , 
Inc. , 2271 Charleston Road, 
Mountain View, California 94043. 

Mr. Robert Lee was asked to explain the contract. He said there are 
discharge pipes at the end of the runway. Due to the deterioration 
of the flap gates, these pipes will have to be replaced. This is 
done periodically. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked if the pipes pick up only the drainage 
from the field and was told this is true. He then asked about the 
areas closer to the terminal. Mr. Lee then told him these areas 
drain through the canals to the oxidation ponds. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

Mo. 76-0039 Resolution accepting the work under 

Airport Contract No. 1021, Repairs 
to Fire Hydrant Assemblies, Rotunda 
"A", as satisfactorily completed; 
approving and requesting the 
Controller's certification of 
Credit Modification No. 1 in the 
amount of $2,698.00; and approving 
final payment in the amount of 
$16,202.00 in favor of the contractor, 
Fat Kennelly Construction, 533 Theresa 
Drive, South San Francisco, CA 94080. 

Mr. Dwyer reminded the Commission that this was the contract that one 
of our former contractors did not complete to the satisfaction of the 
Airport. The former contractor refused to do the work, so the con- 
tract was put out to bid and awarded to Kennelly Construction. 

* * * 



76 - 21 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0040 Resolution recommending to the 

Director of Property award of 
Airport Contract No. 1036, 
Demolition of Old Maintenance 
Euilding and Adjacent Structures, 
to the lowest bidder, Nor-Cal 
Demolition, 4125 Pinot Drive, 
Napa, California 94558, in the 
total amount of $4,960.00, 
including Alternate "A". 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is a request to tear down an old maintenance 
building so that the area can be used for cargo facilities for 
Japan Airlines and Flying Tiger Lines. 

* * * 

There were comments on the bid and there was question as to how 
Nor-Cal could make such a low bid. Mr. Lee stated Nor-Call had 
a buyer for the demolished building. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren asked if this would come under the juris- 
dictional approval of the Board of Supervisors Committee on the 
Expansion Program. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the funds are already approved for this. 

Commissioner McDonnell commented on the Select Committee and stated 
there would be several meetings. He said should there be any need 
for further remodeling at the Airport, it might be necessary to go 
back to that committee. 

Ms. Warren then suggested the airport change the wording in the 
resolution. 

Commissioner McDonnell replied that it has to be stated that way 
because the demolition of the building and further use of the area 
relates to the expansion program. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0041 Resolution consenting to removal 

of personal property affixed to 
real property, Plot 20. 

Mr. Dwyer explained this is an agreement for purposes of granting 
consent for removal of personal property affixed to real property, 
in favor of the Bank of America National Trust and Savings 
Association. 

* * * 



76 - 22 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

•■o. 76-0942 Resolution approving the final 

plans and specifications submitted 
by United Airlines showing their 
proposed structural modifications 
to the maintenance dock within 
Dock 6 at the Maintenance Base. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the project consists of strengthening the existing 
structural framework to accommodate the relocation of various over- 
head cranes, at an estimated cost of $39,000, and that the work 
would be done by United at its own and sole expense and without 
rental credit. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0043 Resolution authorizing intervention 

in the improved authority to Wichita, 
CAB Docket No. 28 843. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is a request to participate in a proposed non- 
stop flight between Wichita and San Francisco. He said in the past 
the City supported this type of program. 

* * * 

Further Business Before the Commission 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired what is the possibility of getting 
a direct flight to Mexico City. 

Mr. Dwyer stated that there have been bi-lateral discussions Le- 
tween Mexico and the United States on new routes, which started in 
1970. For one reason or other they have never been able to come to 
an agreement. Ke brought the Commission up to date on what occurred 
when he attended a recent conference in Mexico City on this matter. 
He stated we should hear the outcome of this conference in a few days. 
He also stated the priority schedule: Mexico/San Francisco; Mexico/ 
Acapulco; Mexico/Dallas-Ft . Worth; Mexico/Miami (non stop) . 

* * * 

Mr. Dwyer informed the Commission that Former Director of San 
Francisco International Airport James K. Carr, has resigned his post 
as Director of Airports and Special Assistant to the County Executive 
in Sacramento and has taken a job with Senator Collier's Transportation 
Committee. Mr. Dwyer asked the Commission to authorize the Secretary 
to write a resolution commending Mr. Carr on the occasion of his retire- 
ment from operation of airports, and to express their best wishes for 
success in his new endeavors. 

There being no further business before the Commission, the meeting 
adjourned at 3:10 PM. --,

the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0044 Resolution ratifying action of 

the Commission under Resolution 
Ho. 76-0044 by telephone poll on 
March 2, 1976, approving Modifi- 
cation No. 2 to professional

tion Management Consultants to 
provide an interim budget of 
$30,000 for the period between 
March 1, 1976 and March 15, 1976, 
inclusive, pending approval and 
certification of annual budget. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, stated the total budget for 
CMC was on the agenda at the last meeting, but it was put over for 
further clarification. This interim budget was for a 15-day period, 
and was needed for operating expenses pending approval of the total 
budget. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-004 6 Resolution approving the budget 

for the Construction Management 
Consultants, a joint venture of 
Sverdrup & Parcel and Associates, 
Inc. and Stone, Marraccini and 
Patterson, to provide construction 
management and design review for 
the period March 16, 1976 to 
December 31, 1976, in the total 
amount of $1,902,986.00. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this was put over from last meeting. The annual 
budget must be submitted each year to the Commission for approval. 
Ke said this item should have been presented in January but that 
there were no funds available until after the sale of revenue bonds. 

Commissioner McDonnell requested that any modifications of agreements 
be submitted to the Commission for review at least 30 days prior to 
the Commission meeting. He said the Commissioners had some questions 
on the agreement, which needed to be clarified. 

-continued- 



76 - 24 



Commissioner Lynn requested a more detailed listing of expenditures 
be included in all future budgets. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated that normally this work would be done 
by City staff, but due to the complexities involved and the rapid 
movement of developments, it would have been impossible to put 
together a staff of the size necessary to accomplish this task. 

Mr. Patterson of Stone, Marraccini & Patterson, stated his group 
was pleased with the approval of the budget and pledged the full 
cooperation of his group. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-C047 



Resolution approving Modification 
No. 15 of the Professional Services 
Agreement with San Francisco Air- 
port Architects, increasing the 
budgeted fees under Basic Services 
by $1,901,502 and $200,000 for 
Additional Services and Reimburs- 
able Expenses. 



Mr. Dwyer recommended the following change in the Modification, 
Section 4, page 3: 

Delete Section 4. 

Ke said this would have raised compensation to the principals, but 
that upon recommendation of the City Attorney, this change was being 
requested. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated this firm was chosen by the Public 
Utilities Commission in 1967, but the contract was not written until 
October 1968. 

Mr. William Bourne, Utilities General Counsel, advised that the rais- 
ing of the compensation from $25.00 to $40.00 would violate the 
California State, statutory and constitutional laws. At this stage 
of the proceedings it would be considered a misuse of public funds. 
The Airport Architects are required to perform work at the contract 
rate of $25.00 per hour and are so bound. The rest of the modifica- 
tion is approved. 

Commissioner Chester made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Lynn to 
delete Section 4 of the agreement. 

When asked if this was the final expenditure for this contract, 
Mr. Dwyer stated there are two items that must go forward: road 
graphics and expansion and distribution of the electric system, but 
that he would make the recommer.dat ion to enter into a new agreement 
when the new work is assigned. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked how much has been done on air traffic 
control tower. Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director for Engineering and 
Planning, stated the schematics have been completed. He advised 
this would be explained under Additional Services. 

-cont inued- 



76 - 25 



On new projects, Commissioner McDonnell asked if any of the work 
had been done and was told it had not. He was informed that the 
funds come out of the revenue bonds. 

Mr. L. Blackford of the Airport Architects stated this project 
was to be completed by 1974, but due to delays, it was not possible. 
Mr. Lloyd Laity of the Airport Architects stated they accepted the 
ruling of the City Attorney on the hourly contract rate. 

* * * 

Agenda Item No. 4 was taken off calendar for further study. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-C049 Resolution approving a Supple- 

mental budget for the fiscal year 
1976-77 in the total amount of 
$15,652.00 to cover cost of in- 
creased insurance premiums and 
reclassification of one Stationary 
Fngineer to Chief Stationary 
F.ngineer, Sewage Plant. 

Mr. Dwyer stated that insurance rates have increased and that this 
budget is to cover the amount of the increased premiums.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0050 Resolution ratifying action of 

the Director of Airports in 
approving and requesting the

at South Terminal, as satisfacto- 
rily completed; approving and 
requesting the Controller's 
certification of Debit Modifica- 
tion No. 2 in the amount of 
$164.50; extending the completion 
date from June 28, 1975 to 
November 3, 1975; assessing liqui- 
dated damages in the amount of 
$28,805.54 in favor of the con- 
tractor, Wesco Construction 
Company, 725 Second Street, San 
Francisco, California 94107. 

Mr. Dwyer said the Customs area is so small that it has become in- 
adequate for handling the volume of traffic it has begun to receive, 
and that the flow of passenger traffic is seriously interfering with 
total airport operations in that area. Ke said in the near future, 
staff would return to the Commission with a request for funds for 
expansion of the area in the South Terminal. This contract was sub- 
mitted in an attempt to clear up a few problems. 

Commissioner Lynn asked if Customs paid rent. When he was told they 
do not, he asked why. He was told Customs was an agency of the 
Federal Government and that the airport provides this space without 
charge. It is a Federal function situation in all international 
airports around the country. 

Further discussion ensued regarding the necessity to expand the 
South Terminal. 

In response to Commissioner McDonnell's question, he was advised that 
the bank, Duty Free Shop, airlines' baggage areas, and other tenants 
would benefit from expansion of the South Terminal. Ke was also 
advised that the estimate for complete expansion would. be approximately 
$20 million.

Attorney Jerry Cohen, on the occasion of his retirement. He added 
that Mr. Cohen was instrumental in securing positive results on 
many suits in which the Airport was involved. He voiced his appreci- 
ation for all the fine work Mr. Cohen had done for the airport. To

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0056 Resolution declaring the existence 

of an emergency due to the failure 
on March 29, 1976, of a power 
feeder cable, which is the only 
source of power to Western Air- 
lines Hangar and Reservation Center 
Building; directing the Director 
of Airports to effect necessary 
repairs to the power feeder cable 
and related equipment in the most 
expeditious manner; and requesting 
the Controller to certify funds in 
the estimated amount of $10,000.00 
against Appropriation Number

Mr. William J. Dwyer, Director of Airports, stated it was necessary to

entitled "Joint Exercise of Powers 
Agreement between City and County 
of San Francisco and County of

of Supervisors to authorize exe- 
cution of said agreement. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is the third time this resolution has been before 
the Commission. It was referred to the Finance Committee and the Board 
of Supervisors. There had been some discussion as to who should repre- 
sent the "City" on the Joint Powers Committee. It was agreed that since 
Mr. Dale Fearn, Assistant Deputy Director for Planning, reports directly 
to the Director of Airports, it would be feasible to appoint him as a 
representative of the City on the Joint Powers Committee.

76 - 2 9 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0058 Resolution requesting the Mayor 

to recommend to the Board of 
Supervisors a supplemental appro- 
priation in the total amount of 
$1,028,561 to cover increased 
costs of Contractual Services, 
Light, Heat and Power, Materials 
and Supplies, Auto and Fire 
Insurance, and Accident Compen- 
sation and increasing estimate of 
Utility Services revenues by 
$841,470.00. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this request was necessitated because of increased rates 
for gas and electricity which were initiated subsequent to the appropria- 
tion of the budget. This additional amount would carry us through June 
of this year. 

At the time the new rates were passed, several of the airlines objected, 
stating that the proper procedure was not followed in raising the rates, 
and they have continued to pay under the old rates. The City Attorney 
has this under advisement and will recommend some type of action. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked Deputy City Attorney Kroopnick what was 
being done in this regard. Mr. Kroopnick stated they were awaiting some 
Federal determination on a pending suit before action could be taken. 

Commissioner McDonnell said, actually we are just passing this increase 
on to the tenants. Mr. Dwyer stated it is probable that a suit will be 
filed to collect the money. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked what the total increase in gas and electricity 
rates means to the airport, and was told about $840,000 for the remainder 
of the fiscal year. 

Commissioner Chester inquired if the difference between old and current 
rates was returnable when it is out of litigation. He was told it will 
be recovered from tenants. 

Mr. Al Kaiser, United Airlines, stated it is not the rates that the 
airlines are protesting; it is the manner in which it was handled. The 
airlines are holding a meeting to discuss the matter, and expect eventu- 
ally to pay. 

Mr. Dwyer added that most of the tenants who are paying are doing so 
under protest. 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0059 Resolution approving the prelimi- 

nary plans and specifications 
submitted by United Airlines, 
showing the fixed portions of the

UAL proposes to construct at the 
North Terminal and Poarding Areas 
H & I. The work will be performed 
by United Airlines at its own and 
sole expense and without rental 
credit .

from existing lease contracts 
with Atlantic Richfield, Shell, 
Standard, Texaco and Union Oil 
Companies. 

Mr. Dwyer stated since 1973, wharfage fees have been included in the 
landing fees. Since these are no longer part of the revenue, but 
included in the landing fees, a modified contract will be issued. 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0063 Resolution accepting the work 

under Airport Contract No. 98 3,

Laboratories, 128 Maryland Street, 
El Segundo, California 94205. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is the resolution for completing the payment of 
the contract that was entered into by the City for setting up the Noise 
Monitoring System. He added the system is successfully operating, 
situated in the South Terminal, and is visited by many people from all 
over the country. There are 13 monitoring stations set up outside the 
airport in the surrounding communities. With this system, the noise- 
offender airline can be pin-pointed and so advised.

Mr. Dwyer stated that at the beginning of the strike, Airports was in a 
position where we did not know what might happen and it was felt that 
we might need additional funds to take care of some emergencies during 
that time. We have used that fund at least three times: 

a) repairs to the runways. 

b) insufficient water to run toilets; therefore 

purchased portable toilets. 

c) overtime for airport police. 

In summarizing what has occurred during the strike, Mr. Dwyer stated

c) no interruption to passenger traffic, although picket 

lines have been set up outside the maintenance facility.

available to testify, if necessary. Mr. Dwyer said they are prepared 
to testify and that it is hoped to have the Environmental Impact Report 
ready to turn over to FAA on May 1st. It then becomes a document of 
the Federal government; at that time it would still be 6 months more 
before approval. 

Mr. Dale Fearn stated it is the responsibility of the Airport to supply 
the document to the Federal government, which they will further process, 
. as part of our request for Federal aid. We anticipate no further problems.

76 - 36 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolutions were adopted: 



No. 76-0079 Resolution accepting the 

Surrender of Leaseholds from 
Standard Oil Company. 

No. 76-008 Resolution Approving Surrender 

of Shell Oil Leaseholds. 



Mr. Dwyer explained this type of thing is done when the Airport desires 
to take possession of a property occupied by a tenant prior to the 
expiration of its lease. In this event, the company is paid for the 
surrender of its leasehold, as well as the cost of its removal from 
the premises of its other properties. He said this has been a long 
and arduous negotiation and that it has the approval of the Director 
of Property; we have been provided with money to pay for this action. 
There will be a considerable increase in the cost of leasing these areas. 

Commissioner Lynn asked how long it takes to get that money back and 
was told we are more concerned with acquiring the land. The rentals 
charged for the lease of this land is suggested by the Director of 
Property. We are required to go out to bid for all land leases. In 
order to insure continued flow of fuel to our tenants, the airport 
would require the successful bidder to purchase the discarded equipment. 

Commissioner Lynn asked if there was any escape clause. He was told 
there is a 10-year term with a 5-year lease. We will review later. 

* * * 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester,

for payment of the extensive reworking of the Company's financial 
analysis, due to revisions of the construction schedules by City.

76 - 37 



Further Business Before the Airports Commission 



Mr. Dwyer told the Commission we have a new officer in charge of the 
Noise Monitoring Division, Mr. Arnold Fenner, who will be introduced 
at the next meeting. 



Mr. David Frankel , a representative of the Independent Taxi Drivers 
Association, spoke on behalf of the independent taxi drivers. He 
quoted a passage from the agreement of Yellow Cab and stated they 
were in violation of their agreement by the recent walkout of Yellow 
Cab drivers. 

Mr. James Brasil, City Attorney, stated this was called to the atten- 
tion of the Director of Airports, who then contacted the Vice President 
of Yellow Cab to inform them they were in violation of their agreement 
and gave them 30 days (to which they are entitled under law) to comply 
with the terms of their agreement. He added that Yellow Cab is back 



Mr. Frankel asked what would happen if they went out again, and if so, 
would their agreement be automatically terminated. 

Mr. Brasil stated there is no provision for automatic termination. 
It would be up to the Commission to study the case, decide if there 
was a breach of contract, and act thereupon. Each situation is handled 
as it occurs and in accordance with whatever action is deemed appropriate. 

The meeting adjourned at 3:20 PM. -

Commissioner William H. Chester. 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of April 20, 1976, 
were approved and adopted as presented.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0082 



Resolution approving the final 
plans and specifications and 
authorizing the Director of Airports 
to call for bids for Airport Contract 
No. 10 00, Garage: Stage IV - Super- 
structure Addition. 



Mr. William Dwyer , Director of Airports, stated this would be the 
largest single contract authorized by the Airports Commission. He 
said the construction of the Garage and the Ground Transportation 
Center has been done in five stages. This is stage IV of the program. 
He stated the estimated cost of this contract is $54,000,000 and that 
the construction time is approximately 865 calendar days. He added 
that two sections of the garage will be in operation prior to the 
completion of the North Terminal and that the entire addition will be 
ready to serve the North Terminal Complex when this facility is opened 
in late 1978. 

Airport Architect Lloyd Laity explained the renderings and drawings, 
pointing out and elaborating on areas of concern to the Commissioners. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired about the central heating and cooling 
plant and whether it would have future capacity to serve the entire 
terminal area. Mr. Laity replied that space has been provided in the 
design to accommodate additional boilers and chillers as they are 
required in the future. He said the contract also has provisions for 
a future BART Station under the garage. Included in the bid documents 
is an alternate to complete the addition to the existing section of 
the garage where the up ramps are now located. This work has been 
scheduled for Stage V but is included as an alternate to take advantage 
of the favorable bidding climate now existing in the construction market. 
He said certain work is excluded from the contract: garage graphics, 
roadway graphics, interior finish, bridges to south and central terminals. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if there are funds available to take care of 
excluded items and was told that there are. 

Commissioner Mazzola asked if the 5th floor construction in the garage 
was as far as it would go, and was advised that this would be the 
ultimate capacity. When he asked about parking capacity, he was told 
there will be a total of 7,000 stalls, and it is believed that this 
would be adequate to handle airport parking to 1990. 



76 - 39 



Commissioner McDonnell asked if the airport would maintain the remote 
parking lot and was told that it would. The plan is to coordinate 
the future remaining connecting bridges with the remodeling activities 
scheduled for the terminals so that the work will be completed 
simultaneously. 

When asked about future extension of bridges, Mr. Laity replied such 
extensions would be possible if the terminals are remodeled to 
receive them. 

VThen Commissioner McDonnell inquired what would be required to con- 
nect the expanded garage to the Central and South Terminals, Mr. Laity 
replied it would include the completion of the elevator and pedestrian 
cores in the garage and structural changes in the terminals.

their estimated contract. They plan to completely remodel the coffee 
shop and cocktail lounge in the Central and South Terminals. These 
plans have been checked several times by the staff. Host's architect 
explained the many facets of their plans and renderings, and said this 
is the first in a series of facilities which will be either completely 
rebuilt or remodeled. He added the coffee shop will be changed to 
self-service and that it would seat fewer people. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if a full 8 months was needed to re- 
build the coffee shop and was told that it would be needed.

Commissioner Coblentz made a motion, seconded by Commissioner 
Mazzola, that approval be given to Host's overall project, subject 
to their working out the details of the planned temporary use of 
lobby space with the Director and Airport staff.

San Bruno, California 94066. 

Mr. M. F. Bagan, Deputy Director, Operations and Maintenance, stated 
that this contract was necessary to construct canopies to protect 
the cashiers from various weather conditions. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if the $200.00 liquidated damages 
was approved by the contractor. He was told the liquidated damages 
are set by airport engineers and agreed to by the contractor.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Coblentz 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0096 Resolution ratifying action of the

76 - 44 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolutions (which involve an extension of time due to 
the City strike) were adopted. 

No. 76-0097 Resolution approving Modification 

No. 6, Airport Contract No. 900, 
Garage: Stage III, Initial Modi- 
fications, and extending the con- 
tract completion time 35 calendar 
days from November 12, 1976 to

contract completion time 37 calen- 
dar days from March 18, 1978 to 
April 24, 1978, for justifiable 
unavoidable delays caused by the 
City strike. 

Mr. Bagan stated this additional justifiable time extension was 
allowed so as to avoid any future claims by the contractor. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0099 Resolution ratifying action of the 

Director of Airports in authorizing 
Change Orders Nos. 650C-1, 650C-2, 
650C-4 and 650C-5 in accordance 
with Airport Resolution No. 70-0044

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0100 Resolution awarding Airport Contract 

No. 939, Replacement of Passenger 
Elevators, Central Terminal, to 
Westinghouse Elevator Corporation, 
648 Harrison Street, San Francisco, 
California, in the total amount of 
$23,924.00 (base bid of $21,984.00 
plus Alternate A) . 

Mr. Bagan stated there was only one bid received for the replacement 
of the elevators in the main terminal building. 

-more- 



76 - 45 



The question was raised as to whether the elevators would go higher 
than the present elevators. The reply was the elevator core goes 
only to the fourth level. The only way an extension would be 
possible would be to make some adjustments to the building. The 
FAA has made arrangements for work on the elevators from the fourth 
floor to the sixth floor tower. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0101 Resolution accepting the work as 

satisfactorily completed by Williams, 
Kuebelbeck and Associates, Inc.; 
Design Development for a Land Use 
Study of Airport Influenced Land in 
San Mateo County; extending the time 
of completion to April 12, 1976 and 
approving and requesting Controller's 
certification of final payment in the 
amount of $471.57 to Williams, 
Kuebelbeck and Associates, Inc., 
611 Veterans Boulevard, Redwood City, 
California 94063. 

Mr. Bagan stated the Airport Development Act of 1970 requires the 
land use study of airport-influenced land in San Mateo County, and 
that this report served as a basis for the joint powers agreement 
between the City and San Mateo County. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired where we stand on this project and 
was told that a joint powers agreement has finally been approved by 
the Board of Supervisors. 

Mr. Robert Lee stated the next step is to obtain the names of the 
official nominees from San Mateo County. 

A question was raised as to whether this group has to do a separate 
study. Mr. Lee stated the original group has completed its study 
and that the new group will have to hire a project director, etc. 
He also stated that 2/3rds of the money is reimbursable by the FAA. 

Marguerite Warren asked whether the original completion date was a 
typeographical error. She was informed that the February 7, 1975 
date was correct; that the long period of time for actual completion 
was necessitated by a variety of reasons, including the discovery of 
some mistakes. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0102 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications submitted by 
United Airlines showing the con- 
struction of aviation fuel pipelines 
and hydrant fueling facilities in 
the North Terminal apron area. This 
project consists of constructing 
pipelines and hydrant pits, and in- 
stalling dispensing hydrants at each 
of United Airlines' aircraft parking 
positions . 

Mr. Bagan stated the work will be done by United Airlines at its own 
and sole expense and without rental credit at an estimated cost of 
$350,000.00. 

* * * 

76 - 46 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0103 Resolution Approving FAA Lease 

No. DOT-FA76WE-35 90. 

Mr. Bagan stated this lease authorizes occupancy by the FAA of 
1384 square feet of space in Building A69 located on Plot 42A, on a 
year-to-year basis not to extend beyond September 30, 1981; reserv- 
ing to the Government and the Airports Commission, however, the 
right to termination upon 30 days written notice. The rental of 
$4,152.00 per year payable at $346.00 per month, is set by the Real 
Estate Department of the City and County of San Francisco. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0104 Resolution approving Modification 

No. 1 to the professional services 
agreement with Dames & Moore, Civil 
Engineers, increasing the maximum 
fee to be paid under the contract 
to $54,000.00 and extending the 
time of completion to December 31, 
1976. 

Mr. Bagan said there was discussion as to whether or not this contract 
should be amended, but it was necessary to have an experienced con- 
sultant who knows soil conditions, and who can be present during 
construction. Dames and Moore were originally hired to work on H & I. 
Since they were the original designers, it was felt it would be more 
feasible to have the original consultant do this job. He said it has 
been the policy of the Director to give out a contract for no more 
than one year. This contract will be completed in June of this year. 

The Commission asked if this contract is just for this year and was 
told that it was. It was stated that at the end of this time we can 
negotiate a new contract. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0105 Resolution requesting City Attorney 

to take Legal Action against Airport 
tenants not paying for electrical 
energy at rates established July 1, 
1975. 

Mr. Bagan said some tenants have been paying energy rates established 
in 1975. Others have been paying the new rates under protest, while 
others refused to pay the increased rates. The airport is asking 
the City Attorney to take whatever action is necessary to collect the 
fees from the five airlines refusing to pay. 

-more- 



76 - 47 



The City Attorney stated the airport has the right to cancel the 
lease and to turn off the electricity of those tenants who refuse 
to pay. He said we would be negligent in our public trust if we 
did not go ahead with this legal action. 

Mr. Gordon Davis, an attorney with the law firm of Brobeck, Phleger 
and Harrison, representing the 5 airlines in default, asked to be 
recognized by the Chair. He gave the views of the airlines and 
stated what he felt was their right in this instance. He distributed 
copies of a letter from the Secretary of the Interior, stating that 
the change of rates is subject to the approval of the Secretary of 
the Interior, according to Section 9 of the Raker Act. Our staff 
informed him that the letter referred to rates set by the State 
government; and that it had no bearing on City rates. 

Mr. Davis was informed by President McDonnell that the Commission 
is not an adjudicatory board and that it takes its direction from 
the City Attorney's opinion. He was also informed that he was 
possibly addressing his proposed suit to the wrong body, and that 
the Commission would proceed with the suit prepared by the City 
Attorney. 

There being no additional business, the meeting adjourned at 3:00 PM.

William H. Chester. 

Absent: None 

The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of June 1, 1976 were 
approved and adopted as presented. 



Calendar Item No. 12 was the first to be discussed. It concerned the 
appointment of Mr. George E. Baglin as the Utilities General Counsel 
to fill the vacancy created by the death of Mr. William Bourne. 
Mr. Thomas M. O'Connor, City Attorney, addressed the Commission and 
stated Mr. Baglin' s qualifications for the position. Added to this 
was the statement of Mr. Jerry Cohen, Deputy City Attorney (retired) 
who said the Airports Commission was fortunate to have the services 
of such a highly qualified and technically skilled person as Mr. Baglin. 
Commissioner McDonnell spoke on behalf of the Commission and said the 
staff anticipates a mutually satisfactory working relationship with 
Mr. Baglin. Commission Resolution No. 76-0117 was then adopted. 

* * * 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0106 Resolution accepting the work under 

Airport Contract No. 650B, Structural 
Steel Framing for the North Terminal 
Building, as satisfactorily completed; 
approving final Modification No. 
650B-4 in the amount of $30,865.50 to 
adjust the contract amount to the 
actual amount earned; and approving 
final payment in the amount of 
$531,813.48 in favor of the contractor, 
Stockton Steel Fabricators and 
Erectors, Inc. 

Mr. Bagan, Deputy Director, Operations and Maintenance, recommended 
approval of this modification, stating that the work was completed 
early and that the staff was pleased with the work. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0107 Resolution approving the plans and 

specifications for Contract No. 944, 
Removal of Obsolete Pavement Markings 
at San Francisco International Airport 
and authorizing the Director of 
Airports to call for bids. 

Mr. Bagan stated that in the past staff has painted over the markings. 
However, this overpainting wears off and looks unsightly after a period 
of time. Therefore it is recommended that approval be granted to 
remove the obsolete markings. 

* * * 



76 - 49 



On motion of Commissioner Coblentz , seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0108 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to call for 
bids for Airport Contract No. 908, 
Installation of Traffic Signals. 

Mr. Bagan stated there are two areas on the airport which present a 
critical traffic problem. They are: the north service road in the 
vicinity of the West Underpass, and the road adjacent to the Standard 
Oil Station. The installation of traffic signs at these intersections 
would reduce accidents and alleviate traffic congestion. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if there were other problem areas. 
One problem area which was cited was the access road for returning to 
the terminals. Mr. Sheldon Fein explained the technicalities of this 
situation: In order to reach the return access road, it is necessary 
to merge and cross moving traffic leaving the airport. This is a 
dangerous maneuver and could cause serious accidents. A traffic signal 
would alleviate this problem. Mr. Bagan stated that in about 6 months 
the staff would come to the Commission for approval of the installation 
of this additional traffic signal. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0109 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to call for 
bids on Contract No. 1024, Remodeling 
Administration Offices, Business and 
Finance Division, Fourth Floor, 
Central Terminal. 

Mr. Bagan told the Commission this is the final contract for remodeling 
the Administration Offices. He said some of the work involves enlarging 
the conference room, bringing the lighting and mechanical equipment up 
to recommended standards; installing new wall and floor finishes to 
correct existing deteriorating finishes, and providing new windows in 
office areas to reduce aircraft noise from the airfield side. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired about the interior of the Engineering 
Building . 

Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director for Engineering/Planning stated the 
preliminary plans are in the process of completion and they will be 
shown at some future time. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0110 Resolution approving professional 

services agreement with Touche 
Ross and Company. 

Mr. Bagan stated this resolution will authorize the Director of 
Airports to execute an agreement by and between the City and Touche 
Ross & Company, to commence and complete an audit of the financial 
operations of two independent contractors who presently provide services 
to the Airport. This is something that is done every year. 

★ * *

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Coblentz, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0111 Resolution approving Modification 

No. 1, extending the completion date 
90 calendar days from June 30, 1976 
to September 28, 1976. 

Mr. Bagan stated this is only an extension of time and that there is 
no money involved. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0112 Resolution approving the plans and 

specifications for Contract No. 951, 
Installation of Alarm Panel, 
Communication Center, and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to advertise 
for bids. 

Mr. Bagan stated the present alarm system has a limited capacity. The 
planned alarm system will appear on a panel above the consoles in the 
Communications Center and will show many areas at one time, and be 
capable of pinpointing the exact location of the alarm. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0113 Resolution approving the action of 

the Director of Airports in settling 
and compromising claims which resulted 
in payment under $2,500. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0114 Resolution approving the plans and 

specifications for Airport Contract 
No. 985, Signs for Maintenance and 
Engineering Buildings, and authoriz- 
ing the Director of Airports to call 
for bids. 

Mr. Bagan stated the signs are necessary to properly identify both the 
Engineering and the Maintenance Buildings. 

Commissioner Coblentz questioned the advisability of spending that 
amount of money for signs. He was told it was necessary to have the 
identifying signs, particularly those that meet the aesthetic standards 
of the building, so that vendors, contractors, tenants, consultants and 
other public agencies that do business with the Airport, would have no 
difficulty in locating these facilities. 

The resolution was approved with Commissioner Coblentz' "no" vote. 

* * * 



76 - 51 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0115 Resolution approving the final 

plans and specifications and 
authorizing the Director of 
Airports to call for bids for 
Contract 774, Landscaping 
Entrance Roads. 

Mr. Bagan stated this item has been before the Commission several 
times and that the preliminary drawings were approved in November. 
This is an updated version with a few changes, but no major ones. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if this contract covered all the 
landscaping for the whole entrance area and was told it did, except 
for the area around the garage. 

Commissioner Mazzola asked if there were any provisions in this contract 
requiring that union labor be hired. He was told that the contract was 
a standard one used by the City which requires payment of prevailing 
wages in the area. 

Commissioner Coblentz stated that the use of the standard form of City 
contract requiring the payment of prevailing wages is a City policy 
matter, and his statement was corroborated by Deputy City Attorney 
David Kroopnick. 

Commissioner Coblentz then asked where the Airport gets its water; he 
was told it comes from the City. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren asked what type of watering system we planned 
to use on the new landscaping and was told that sprinklers would be 
installed. We have a maintenance contract for one year to assure 
that the landscaping gets a good start. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0116 Resolution reaffirming Commission 

policy on energy conservation and 
directing the Director of Airports 
to investigate the use of solar 
energy at San Francisco International 
Airport . 

Commissioner McDonnell stated this item is part of the Airport's exten- 
sive program on conservation of energy. This subject has come up on 
prior calendars but it was felt we should wait until the Garage and 
North Terminal were in contract rather than cause a delay. Solar panels 
could be installed on the roofs of the three terminal buildings. 

Mr. Ken McEldowney asked if the contracts for the garage were written 
in such a way that the garage roof and terminal roofs could be used 
for this purpose. Mr. Robert Lee, Engineering Division, stated this 
has to be studied. He pointed out one way of incorporating this project 
into the system. Commissioner McDonnell stated that the use of solar 
energy is such a new thing that we need to study the type of system we 
would use. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked how long this study would take. Mr. Lee 
said it would be necessary to send out proposals and select a consultant, 
and that the study may take approximately 4 to 6 months.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn,

950, Boarding Area H & I and Con- 
nector in order to incorporate 
changes requested by United Airlines.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0119 



Resolution approving Airports 
Commission Conflict of Interest 
Code. 



Mr. Bagan explained that Proposition 9 passed by the State, requested 
that each government agency have a conflict of interest code. We are 
required to have this by July 1. Mr. Jim Lazrus worked with the staff 
in compiling the Code. He gave explanation of some parts of the Code, 
stating the impact it would have on the effected staff members. 
Commission members asked questions concerning particular interests. 
These were promptly answered by Mr. Lazrus. 

In the public hearing on this matter, Ms. Warren asked how a person would 
be effected if he transferred his assets to a wife, and whether he would 
be required to file the form. She was told this individual would be 
required to file an income disclosure form.

he Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of June 14, 1976, were 
pproved and adopted as presented. 

* * * 

'he Mayor of San Francisco, Mr. George Moscone, addressed the Airports 
iommission. He informed the Commission that it, as well as other City 
igencies, must undergo dramatic changes in goals and practices in 
(aximizing its services to the public and practicing the greatest 
iconomy . 

jte reminded the Commission of the "strong, articulate and reasoned 
)pposition" which was encountered in the current $155 million airport 
expansion project; of passenger traffic forecasts which were not borne 
>ut to date; of airport's expanded use of limited energy sources; and 
>f the inability of fees and revenues to cover costs of expansion. 

le asked the Airports Commission to develop a plan for accommodating 
;he projected increased passenger traffic, to work with the Department 
)f Transportation in assuring transportation to and from the airport, 
is well as making the mode of transportation so attractive that minimal 
ise of the automobile would occur. He added we must also plan trans- 
portation for airport users who do not go to San Francisco, but to 
Jther counties. He said plans should include an "airport baggage check/ 
lestination delivery program." He said this would eliminate some of the 
:ongestion at the airport. 

The Mayor said the airport should take the lead in energy conservation 
md energy innovation, and that airport's coordination of its findings 
vith other departments of City would increase the overall efficiency 
Df the City and County of San Francisco.

3n motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0121 Resolution approving the accel- 

erated return and repayment to 
City's General Fund of $2,000,000 
from Airports Revenue Fund. 

Mr. William J. Dwyer, Director of Airports, explained some of the back- 
ground of the situation leading to the request for funds. He said at 
first it was felt that there were insufficient funds available to trans- 
fer to the General Fund. Mr. Dwyer said he has reviewed the situation 
and found that money is available and he recommends the transfer under 
Section 6.408 of the City Charter. He added that this recommendation 
is for one year only, and is not to be construed as a precedent, because 
commencing Fiscal Year 77-78 it will be necessary to budget funds for 
the cost of Revenue Bonds. The matter has been discussed with bonding 
counsel who has issued an opinion on the legality of this transfer. 



76 - 54 



Commissioner McDonnell inquired why this money is available now when 
it was not available initially. 

Mr. Dwyer explained that three years ago when we signed the landing 
fees agreements with the airlines, it was anticipated we now would 
be well on our way with the construction of the North Terminal and 
Garage, and that this would be the year we would have to pay off 
the indebtedness. The landing fees were based on the probability 
that we would be paying for bonds at this time , but because of con- 
struction delays the $2,000,000 is available for transfer. 

Mr. Robert M. Lowry of the firm of Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison, 
addressed the Commission on behalf of the airlines, in protest of 
the transfer of this money to the City's General Fund. He stated 
that the proposed transfer contravenes the pledge by the Commission 
to the revenue bondholders, and that the airlines, as tenants and 
users of the airport, are to be provided with necessary services by 
the proceeds of those bonds. By analogy, he referred to Section 
6.408(b) (7) of the City Charter, which provides for this service, 
and that transfer of these funds under 6.408(b)(8) would constitute 
a breach of agreement. 

In rebuttal, Mr. Dwyer stated that the transfer was being made under 
Section 6.408 (8), which specifically states that airport revenue 
funds may be used "for any other lawful purpose of the Commission." 

Commissioner Coblentz spoke about the conflict of opinions regarding 
the legality of the transfer, and the appropriateness of the reso- 
lution. He further stated that the minutes should show that the 
airlines have exhausted their administrative remedies, and now would 
have to take legal action if they so desire.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0122 Resolution ratifying the action

for the additional costs incurred 
by the City to review and supply 
corrective measures for the damaged 
pre-cast tees on the 5th level of

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0120 Resolution approving Modifica- 

tion No. 2, Professional Services 
Agreement - Peat, Marwick, Mitchell 
and Company. 

Mr. Dwyer said the purpose of this contract was to update the feasi- 
bility report for revenue bonds. The contractors submitted additional 
revisions to incorporate the "compensatory rental" approach for rates 
and charges. This contract also covers the cost of providing additional 
copies of said report. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked what is the difference between the old and 
the new compensatory rental. 

Mr. Dwyer explained that this places upon terminal area rents the re- 
coupment of terminal area costs, and that any overall gap between 
Airport income and expense is to be met by adjustment of landing fees. 

Commissioner Lynn asked how the airlines felt about this and was told 
there was a diversity of opinion on the matter. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted:

the projected increase in peak 
passenger volume due to the inaugu- 
ration of 747 service at San 
Francisco International Airport. 

Mr. Dwyer said that due to their new 747 service they need a larger 
counter, and that this would be an extension to the already existing 
counter. Upon inquiry, he said the work had been approved by the 
Airport Architects.

Mr. Dwyer stated this will be a new lounge in the area formerly occupied 
by Western airlines offices. 

Upon inquiry as to whether this was approved by Walter Landor Associates, 
Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director for Engineering/Planning stated it had 
been approved by that group but that the Airport Architects have some 
comments which will be included in their letter of approval.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Mazzola, 
the following resolution was adopted:

the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0131 Resolution approving payment of 

$100,393.71 to Hughes Air 
Corporation in settlement of 
Superior Court Action No. 703- 
610. 

Mr. Dwyer said that a few years ago the Airport signed an agreement 
with Hughes Airwest to take over their hangar. We are now in the 
second year and we disagree with the possessory interest tax assessed 
by San Mateo County, and feel that this tax should be revised downward. 
In the meantime, Hughes has paid the interest. Hughes filed suit to 
reclaim this tax, and the City Attorney has written a letter recommend- 
ing that we pay Hughes for the investment they made, and that his 
office will file a new action on behalf of the City against San Mateo 
County for refund of possessory interest taxes paid to date. 

Mr. George Baglin, Utilities Gen. Counsel, stated that unless we are 
successful in court, we would be paying the current assessed interest 
on the areas we are using.

and William H. Chester. 



Absent: Commissioner William K. Coblentz. 

The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of July ^0, 1976 
were approved and adopted as presented. 

* * * 

A presentation was made by Mr. Burch Bachtold of the State Department 
of Transportation, on the subject of Interchange 380. 

Mr. Dwyer, Director of Airports, gave the Commission some of the 
background on Interchange 380 and stated this new highway had aided 
considerably in reducing some of the traffic congestion on the main 
artery to and from the airport. 

Mr. Bachtold went into considerable detail, in which he explained, 
with the use of slides, the work which had been done to date and 
related some of the plans for future highway construction. He stated 
that he could not foresee any construction on the proposed highway 
and overpass within the next six years because of limitation of 
federal grants. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked some questions concerning the viaduct 
and asked whether the connecting bridge could be completed before 
Highway 101 is widened. Mr. Bachtold stated he could not give an 
answer, and added that he would like to consult with the Highway Com- 
mission so as to establish priorities of greatest importance to the 
airport and to be able to move on the construction of the highway west 
of the Bayshore. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated that it was critical to the airport that 
access to its property west of the Bayshore be accomplished as soon 
as possible, and that the exit lane from 380 to the airport was also 
of paramount importance. 

Commissioner Mazzola asked if we were governed by State funding. 
The reply was that we are governed by a combination of Federal and 
State laws. The Colliers/Burns Act spells out the distribution of 
funds throughout the United States.

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0140 Resolution approving the schematic/ 

preliminary plans for the Expansion 
of Electrical Distribution System - 
Phase I, as presented on Drawings 
1 through 21, dated May 28, 1976, 
Design Submittal, dated May 28, 1976, 
and Design Calculations, dated May 11 
through 26, 1976, with comments as 
noted on letter to San Francisco 
Airport Architects, dated July 12, 
1976, and authorizing the San Fran- 
cisco Airport Architects to proceed 
with final contract documents. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the purpose of this contract and asked Mr. Lloyd 
Laity of the Airport Architects to explain further. Mr. Laity said 
the plan provides for the electrical supply for the North Terminal 
Complex and the Garage. He said it also provides for the projected 
demands of these areas. The schematics and preliminary phases of the 
program have been completed and approval is needed for the electrical 
portion of this program. He indicated on a map the areas which are 
involved. It is expected the work will be completed by September 197 7. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked if there were any changes in plans since 
there was an increase in the estimate. Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director 
for Engineering & Planning, stated that the past request for supple- 
mental appropriation to the Board of Supervisors was for $3.6 million 
before firm budget estimates were made. This had been corrected to 
reflect the true budget estimate of $3.8 million when the official 
revenue bond statement was issued. 

Commissioner Lynn had some questions regarding the design submittal 
approval. Mr. Lee stated his staff and the construction management 
consultants have reviewed and approved the design. Mr. Laity added 
that these plans and procedures are highly technical, that there is 
no problem with the plans as submitted.

in the total amount of $11,750. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the purpose of this contract is to provide for the 
removal of obsolete pavement markings on the terminal aprons, adja- 
cent taxiways, and the terminal roadways. He added these markings 
have been replaced by new markings required for changes in aircraft 
operations and traffic routing. 

Commissioner Mazzola inquired if this is to be done throughout the 
airport, and also, how long do the markings last. An affirmative 
reply was made and the Commissioner was assured the markings are 
guaranteed for a minimum of two years.

Mr. Dwyer stated the main purpose of this contract is to eliminate the 
roof leak problems at the low portion of the Airport Maintenance 
Facility occupied by the administrative and supply offices. 

Commissioner Lynn asked why this work wasn't done on the original 
contract. He was told that the work was not needed at that time, but 
that it has been determined now that a new roof is needed as a result 
of the last rainy season. Then the Commissioner inquired about the 
roof on the Engineering building, and was told it is in satisfactory 
condition. He further inquired about the remodeling of the Engineering 
building. Mr. Lee stated as soon as the Commission is available, they 
would meet on this subject.

that the estimated cost of this work is $450,000. 

* * * 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0150 Resolution approving Modification 

No. 1, extending the completion

Board pending processing of a new 
agreement for this work. Sufficient 
unencumbered funds are available in 
the present agreement to cover the 
cost of the required work during 
the extended period. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is an extension, to the end of the year, of an 
existing agreement. He added that no additional funds are required. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked why it was not extended beyond that period. 
Mr. Dwyer stated funds were not available beyond the end of the year; 
that staff would come back in November with a new contract.

76 - 66 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0151 Resolution authorizing City 

Attorney to dismiss, without 
prejudice, legal action against 
PSA and Delta Airlines for their 
refusal to pay new utility rates 
established on July 1, 1975. 
Both airlines are now paying new 
rates, under protest. 

Mr. Dwyer stated it was called to his attention that the Public 
Utilities Commission raised its electrical rates an additional 
$500,000 last week. He said the airlines have filed suit protest- 
ing the rates; but that could go on indefinitely. We would rather 
have the airlines pay the rates, under protest, and then wait out 
a court action. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated that one possibility of recovering the 
delinquent utility charge would be to raise the landing fees. 

Mr. Dwyer stated he would like to come back to the Commission with a 
further recommendation at the next meeting. 

Commissioner Lynn asked how much money was involved and was told about 
$700,000. He said he felt we should charge interest when the airlines 
delay their payments, but was told by Utility Counsel that this could 
not be done. 

Mr. Kaiser, of United Airlines, was asked to make a statement: He 
said as soon as they receive a bill properly established, they would 
pay it. It was United Airlines* contention that the billing was not 
legal under the Raker Act provisions. 

Commissioner Mazzola recommended that the staff meet with the airlines 
concerning possible increase of landing fees to cover delinquent pay- 
ments and to bring their findings to the next Commission meeting. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0152 Resolution awarding Airport Contract 

No. 1000, Garage: Stage IV - Super- 
structure Addition, in the total 
amount of $50,414,395.00, to 
Robert E. McKee, Inc. 4701 San 
Fernando Road West, Los Angeles, 
California 90039, as the lowest 
regular and responsible bidder. 

Mr. Dwyer stated that upon completion of this contract we would have 
the complete North Terminal, the aprons and the Garage. He said that 
six bids were received on July 8, and that the successful bidder was 
the McKee company from Texas. 

Commissioner McDonnell pointed out a particular phase of the program 
regarding the lower level loop road and inquired whether the funds for 
the purchase of this equipment was included in this contract. 

Mr. Lee stated the purchase of all equipment is included in the con- 
tract, except for the chillers. 

-more- 



76 - 67 



Commissioner McDonnell then asked if approval was received for the 
purchase of the chillers. 

Mr. Lee stated staff has submitted one purchase order which was 
previously awarded. 

Commissioner Mazzola asked if this was done through the Purchasing 
Department and was told that a portion of it is, but that the remain- 
ing equipment will be furnished by the contractor. 

Mr. Stafford, Sr. Vice President of McKee, Inc., stated they were 
delighted to have been awarded the contract and related their quali- 
fications, some of which included building airport terminals in 
El Paso, Honolulu, etc. 

Commissioner McDonnell requested Mr. Laity to go through each phase 
of the program and explain further what each job entailed. He 
explained the timetable on the performance of the various jobs and 
how they fitted into the overall program. The Commissioner also 
requested a letter be written to the Commission with a commitment 
for completing the special work simultaneously with the completion 
of the garage structure. 

Commissioner Chester inquired if this firm has agreed with the 
Affirmative Rights Program and was told that they plan to abide by 
this agreement. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if Federal funds have been allocated 
for bid item 50, Lower Level Loop Road, and was informed that this 
work is included under a prior ADAP Grant No. 4, which gives 54% 
Federal aid. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren inquired if the bid figures were thoroughly 
checked, and why there is a great disparity in the range of bids. 

Mr. Stafford explained this is brought about by the quotations from 
the subcontractors, (the general contractor can bargain with sub- 
contractors prior to submittal of their bids) . 

Commissioner Mazzola asked if there have ever been instances in which 
the contractor could be made to lower his bid. 

Mr. Lee informed him that the bids are sealed when submitted to the 
Airport and are opened at a bid meeting; also, that it would be 
illegal to do so. 

Commissioner Chester asked if we can get a guarantee from the contractor 
that they will use people from San Francisco. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the airport does not have the right to say how many 
the contractor must hire, and that we cannot tell them to hire from 
San Francisco or any other Bay Area city or county. It is hoped that 
a good many workers will be hired from San Francisco. 

Mr. Baglin, Utilities Gen. Counsel, stated we cannot dictate to the 
contractors. 

Commissioner Chester added that employment of San Franciscans was 
one of the main items raised by the Board of Supervisors in approving 
the Expansion Program.

Further Business Before the Commission 



Commissioner McDonnell congratulated the staff, Airport Architects 
and consultants for the expeditious revitilization of the program 
following a slow-down of a few years. He expressed the hope we are 
now ahead of schedule. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 4 PM.

Call to Order: 2:30 P.M. 

(Present: Commissioners William E. McDonnell, 

Wallace R. Lynn, and Joseph P. Mazzola. 

Absent: Commissioners William K. Coblentz and 

William H. Chester. 

The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of July 20, 1976 were approved 
and adopted as presented. 



!On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0153 Resolution requesting the Mayor to recommend 

to the Board of Supervisors the adoption of a 
resolution authorizing the Airports Commission 
to submit ADAP Project Application No. 7 to 
the Federal Aviation Administration for a grant 
of Federal funds and to accept a grant offer. 
The application will include the following pro- 
jects: 1, Pavement Overlays - Piers D and E, 
Central Terminal; 2, Lighting Systems for 
Taxiways A, B, C, E, F, L, N, P and V; 
3, New Field Lighting Building: 4, Drainage 
Pumping Stations - Runways 19R and 19L and 
28R and 28L; 5, Partial Reconstruction and 
Overlay of Runway 28L; 6, Acquisition of 
Crash-Fire Rescue Truck and Boat; 7, Recon- 
struction of Taxiway C to Plot 50 Cargo Area; 
8, Entrance Roadway Landscaping; 9, Road 
Graphics; 10, Preparation of Draft Environ- 
mental Impact Statement. 

Estimated total cost of projects is $11,427,800. Total portion of costs eligible 
for Federal funding is $8,570,850. Actual Federal grant amount will be allocated 
subsequent to project priority and availability of FAA funds. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, stated that this resolution was a 
request to approve an application for funds, all of which would be for work on 
the fieldside, and not a part of the Expansion Program. Mr. Dwyer said there 
had been no money available since June, 1975, but recently President Ford 
signed the ADAP funding bill. From this, the Airport can expect to receive 
$4. 5 million if the grant is approved. Since the Federal Government has changed 
the term of its fiscal year, the first fiscal year will end September 30, 1976, 
and this request must be filed prior to that date.

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0154 Resolution awarding Contract No. 1024, 

Remodeling Administrative Offices, Business 
and Finance Division, Fourth Floor, Central 
Terminal, to Martinelli Construction Co. , Inc. , 
1580 Folsom Street, San Francisco, California, 
in the total amount of $135,800.00 

Mr. Dwyer said that approximately two years ago, the Commission authorized 
the remodeling of the Administrative Offices, with the understanding they would 
be permanently located in the Central Terminal. In order to complete the 
project, but still keep the offices functioning, the work was split into three 
phases. Two phases have been completed, and this is the final work to be 
done. Mr. Dwyer explained that upon completion of this contract, the Adminis- 
trative Offices will be in first-class condition. 

Commissioner Lynn asked, for the record, why the Airport engineer's estimate, 
which consistently runs higher than the low bid on other contracts, was about 
25% lower on this contract. 

Mr. Dwyer explained that the Airport engineer's estimate was $110,000, while 
the low bid was $135,800. He expressed the thought that the contractor had 
taken into consideration items which had been overlooked in the engineer's 
estimate. Mr. Dwyer 's opinion was, since the other contractors knew the amounts 
of the bids, it would be futile to deny the bid and start another bidding procedure; 
while this might be worthwhile on a big contract, the amount involved here was 
not enough to cover the cost of the delay on a small contract. 

Mr. Dwyer further stated the Airport staff felt this was a fair bid and recom- 
mended approval of the contract. 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0155 Resolution awarding Contract No. 908, Installa- 

tion of Traffic Signals to The Lowrie Paving 
Company, Inc. , 1321 Lowrie Avenue, South 
San Francisco, CA 94080 in the total amount 
of $103, 135. 50. 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0156 Resolution accepting the work under Airport 

Contract No. 1031, Exterior Painting - Airport 
Maintenance Facility, as satisfactorily completed; 
extending the completion date from February 17, 
1976 to February 25, 1976; and approving final 
payment in the amount of $1,336.55 in favor of 
the contractor, Bill Wright Painting & Decora- 
ting, P. O. Box 8233, Emeryville, California 
94608. 

Mr. Dwyer said the staff was satisfied with the completion of the contract. 

* * * 



76 - 71 



On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0157 This agreement will provide availability of 

medical services at the Airport 24 hours per 
day, 365 days per year, at a cost not to 
exceed $85, 000. 00 for the one year's con- 
tract term. This agreement supersedes one 
that also had a one year term and the same 
maximum payment limitation. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this agreement must be renewed each year and under each 
budget. The Medical Clinic has been operating for a year under the agree- 
ment, offering services on the midnight and swing shifts. Mr. Dwyer said he 
considered the San Francisco Airport Medical Clinic the finest in the United 
States, and he was very glad to renew the contract. Mr. Dwyer suggested 
that Dr. Smookler, who was present, might care to present some statistics 
to the Commission. 

Commission President McDonnell welcomed Dr. Smookler to the meeting, and 
asked him to tell briefly how the Clinic has worked out during the past year. 

Dr. Smookler recited some statistics and unusual cases which had come to the 
medical staff during the midnight and swing shifts during the past year, further 
commenting that the San Francisco Airport Medical Clinic was the only one in 
the world, to his knowledge, to offer such extensive services and hours. 
Further, that due to the increased passenger traffic, the demand for medical 
services had increased proportionately. 

President McDonnell stated the Commission had received many compliments 
from people passing through the Airport. 

Commissioner Mazzola complimented Dr. Smookler, not only for the fine ser- 
vice, but for the atmosphere the Clinic created, referring to its location at the 
Airport, its availability and the comfort offered, saying it was a credit both 
to the Airport and to the Doctor. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Mazzola, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0158 This resolution authorizes a one-year extension 

of the professional services contract with 
Hogan & Hartson, a Washington, D. C. law 
firm, with all other terms and conditions of 
said contract remaining unchanged. 

Mr. Dwyer explained that Hogan & Hartson is a law firm retained in the event 
of legal problems arising in Washington, D. C.

Ir. Dwyer said the purpose of this contract is to improve the road in 
front of United Airlines Operational Base and is needed because of traffic 
congestion in that area. A question was raised as to whether this work 
tfould be torn up by the State Highway construction to be done in approxi- 
mately the same area. Mr. Dwyer replied that the work to be done by 
bhis contract is around the bend from the State work and therefore would 
lot be affected. Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director, Engineering/Planning, 
pointed out the involved area on a map.

plans and specifications and 
authorizing the Director of Air-

Terminal . 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is a major remodeling job in the Central Terminal 
consisting of remodeling the existing Airport Police locker rooms and 
vacated spaces at the second and lower levels. 

Mr. Bagan, Deputy Director for Operations/Maintenance, stated that since 
the Airport expects to hire female police officers in the near future, 
separate locker room facilities will be needed. The work will include 
repair of existing metal lockers, installation of new lockers, upgrading 
the quality of lighting and mechanical air-distribution systems and 
provision for better utilization of the spaces. 

Commissioner McDonnell called for clarification of what appeared to be 
a discrepancy in the number of officers these locker rooms would accom- 
modate. Mr. Dwyer stated the new design was intended to accommodate 
197 officers, which is the full complement of officers needed when the 
North Terminal is completed. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired as to the square footage of the area and 
was told approximately 3000 sq. feet.

Commissioner McDonnell welcomed Mr. Morris Bernstein, the newly 
appointed Airports Commissioner. He expressed regrets that Mr. 
Mazzola could not be present, and praised him for his dedicated and 
effective service as a member of the Airports Commission. 

* * * 

It was requested by Commissioner Coblentz that Item 14 be considered 
first and on motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner 
Chester, the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0184 Resolution approving Interior Design 

Program Report: Phase I dated March 
8, 1976, submitted by Walter Landor 
Associates, subject to comments 
noted therein by City and authoriz- 
ing Walter Landor Associates to 
proceed with Phases II and III of 
the program at a total cost not to 
exceed $70,000.00. 

Mr. Dwyer stated there have been several reviews by staff of Phase I 
and that they are now presenting it to the Commission for final approval 
He said originally the staff felt the entire North Terminal should be 
carpeted. This was modified to recommend the use of tile in the heavily 
traveled areas. There was a delay but the company has finally come up 
with a tile which they recommend not only for its low maintenance 
feature, but also for its durability. 

A representative from Walter Landor Associates showed slides of the 
planned work under Phases II and III, the materials to be used, and 
discussed the qualities of the materials to be used. Some questions 
were raised as to the durability of the maintenance-free aspects of 
the materials selected. These were promptly answered by the Landor 
representative who stated that they visited many airports throughout 
the country to ascertain the durability and maintenance aspects of 
materials used therein. 

Mr. Bagan stated he felt the harder surface would be easier and 
cheaper to maintain than the carpet. A comparison was made between 
the carpet installed in Rotunda A and the carpet planned to be used 
by Landor. The difference was that the Rotunda A carpet is nylon and 
the projected carpet is a type of woven material, which is considered 
to be superior. 

Mr. Kaiser of United Airlines was asked if he felt the selected color 
coordination of the carpet and other materials were satisfactory. 
He answered affirmatively.

trustee to administer the Mayor's 
G.O. Bond sinking fund and further 
provides for the return to the 
Commission of any accumulated 
monies in excess of principal 
redemption, interest and expense 
requirements . 

Mr. Dwyer stated the Mayor asked Airports to set up a Trust Fund so that 
there would be sufficient funds to cover the then outstanding G.O. Bonds. 
This resolution is to authorize the director to enter into a trustee 
agreement.

process for algae removal. 

Mr. Dwyer said these resolutions concern the approval and acceptance 
of Consoer, Townsend & Associates to do the preliminary design study 
for a supplementary report, and for them to do the final design on an 
industrial waste collection system; also to engage the services of 
Metcalf & Eddy to conduct a pilot plant study. 

Commissioner McDonnell expressed some concern as to the length of time 
required to get this project under way. Mr. Dwyer stated this was due 
to certain variables, but that through a series of meetings staff was 
able to readjust the cost. He then asked Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy 
Director for Engineering/Planning to review the project. In so doing, 
Mr. Lee stated the project was authorized in 1973. There was some 
discussion of the flow route of waste to certain collection points 
and the need for a pilot plant. It was pointed out by staff that only 
through the operation of a pilot plant would they be able to make a 
determination as to the installation of the best possible system, as 
well as cost factors. 

Mr. Al Kaiser of United Airlines presented the contention of the air- 
lines that there was justification to install the new system. 

Commissioner Chester asked what would be the location of the pilot 
plant and was told it would be installed next to the oxidation ponds.

further suggested that the item be put over until there was an oppor- 
tunity to discuss it further. Mr. Dwyer, Director of Airports, asked 
Mr. William Paizis, Deputy Director, to explain the matter. He said due 
to the unusual nature of this agreement and the circumstances surround- 
ing it, in which there will be extensive remodeling of the Central and 
South Terminals, the agreement could not be set on a time schedule. 
Also, in this special situation we are asking the bidders to bid on the 
basis of percentage of gross revenues. 

Commissioner McDonnell then asked if there was anyone present who wished 
to apeak on this subject and who would be unable to attend the meeting

expenses. Commissioner McDonnell asked if we have any indication as 
to what the bill will be. He was told that one bill was received and 
Airports staff has requested information on number of hours worked and 
the cost per hour. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked if there were any limitations; to which 
Mr. Dwyer replied they must be at least within reason. Mr. Dwyer 
added we have never made a lump sum payment to any company. 

Commissioner McDonnell added Airport should be sure to nofify all the 
Commissioners before going to court.

Call to Order 2:45 PM 



Present: Commissioners William E. McDonnell, 

Wallace R. Lynn, William H. 
Chester, Morris Bernstein. 

Absent: Commissioner William K. Coblentz 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of September 21, 1976, 
were approved and adopted as presented. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0204 Resolution ratifying action 

taken by telephone poll, autho- 
rizing Director of Airports to 
accept grant offer for ADAP funds. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, explained that Federal legis- 
lation was recently passed which granted funds to various airports 
throughout the country. He listed the projects which would be financed 
by the funds allotted to S.F.I. A. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0205 Resolution approving the final 

plans and specifications sub- 
mitted by United Airlines, show- 
ing the catwalks and tracks to be 
installed in the North Terminal 
for United Airlines automated 
baggage handling system. The work 
consists of installing the cat- 
walks and tracks concurrently with 
the construction of the North 
Terminal Building, while the 
designated spaces for the baggage 
handling system are most accessible. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this item was taken off calendar at the last Commission 
meeting in order to provide the opportunity for a representative of 
United Airlines to be present and explain the details and allay any pos- 
sible fears of a vibration problem occurring, similar to the one experi- 
enced at Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport. At this point, he called on Mr. Bill 
Lawder, Vice President of Properties, United Airlines, who, in turn, 
introduced to the Commission several people who are involved in the 
program of installing the baggage system. They were: Messrs Mel Sharp 
and Herb Kramer of Boeing; Mr. Dave Kursack, Project Engineer for United 
Airlines, and Mr. Mike Porter of the Noise and Vibration Consulting firm 
of Bolt, Beranek and Newman.

Mr. Porter showed slides and gave a brief narration of the work they 
intended to do on elimination of noise vibration and reduction. The 
Airports Commission was apprehensive about the noise created by a 
similar baggage system in operation at Ft. Worth and wanted the Minutes 
to show that United Airlines and the company selected for the instal- 
lation of the baggage system at the North Terminal guaranteed that the 
vibration and noise level would not disturb passengers or create damage 
to the building. 

Mr. Robert Lee, Chief Airport Engineer, stated this assurance was 
covered in the resolution, but nevertheless, the Commission wanted 
formal assurance from United on this matter. This assurance was given 
by representatives of United Airlines. 

Commissioner Chester asked how we could get immediate relief in the 
event this baggage system causes damage to the airport. He was told by 
Counsel that there was no immediate way, but that we could repair the 
damage and bill United Airlines. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked how many floors are involved in this 
operation. It was explained that it was an advantage for us to use 
three floors, (i.e., the arrival, departure and basement) rather than 
the two floors used in Dallas, and thereby help reduce vibration and 
noise . 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0206 Resolution extending for one year 

professional services contract, 
San Francisco Chapter, National 
Safety Council. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this item was also on last meeting's calendar but was 
put over so a representative of the Council could address the Commission. 
Mr. Ivar Larsen spoke, relating some of the aims and goals of the Council 
and how it planned to carry out its successful program at the airport. 

* * * 

Resolution Inviting Bids for Award of Advertising Service Agreement . 

Mr. Richard Guggenhime , an attorney with the law firm of Heller, Ehrman, 
White & McAuliffe, spoke on behalf of TDI's interest in bidding for 
advertising service at the airport. He suggested that the variable be 
the amount of the minimum and not the percentage. This was followed 
by considerable discussion of the figure of 50%, with Mr. Dwyer stating 
that 55.3% was being paid at some other airports; notably Detroit. 

Mr. Joseph Jaconi, an attorney representing Victor Bacigalupi & 
Associates, spoke of Mr. Bacigalupi' s financial ability to bid, together 
with his record of integrity during the past eighteen months in which he 
has been in business for himself. He stated that in his opinion the 
minimum qualifications for bidders (i.e., possessing at least five years 
experience in the past ten years in advertising service at airports or 
other transportation terminal facilities, and that such operations must 
have grossed at least $1,000,000 per year) were too rigid and would 
preclude his client from being able to bid. Counsel replied that it 
was mandatory for the Commission to protect the City by laying down 
certain guidelines for bidders on all projects. 

Inasmuch as the questions of percentages and qualifications were raised, 
together with the Commission and staff's uncertainty about the extent 
of remodeling of the Central and South Terminals, it was decided to 
put this matter over for further study.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0207 Resolution awarding Airport 

Contract No. 774, Landscaping 
Entrance Roads to Watkin & 
Bortolussi, Inc., San Rafael, 
California, in the total amount 
of $767,100.00. 

Some questions were raised as to the placement of the Bufano statue. 
These were answered by the architect, Mr. Kazuo Abey, who stated the 
statue would be in place in about 4 months, and that it would be placed 
at the western end of the landscaped area, facing the airport, so that 
it would be visible to everyone leaving the airport. Mr. Dwyer said 
the project includes a fully automated irrigation system, installation 
of flagpoles and street furniture, construction of sidewalks and special 
accent lighting.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0208 Resolution awarding Contract No.

Facilities, Lower and Second Levels 
Central Terminal, to Moore Construc- 
tion Company, 300 Vicksburg Street, 
Suite No. 1, San Francisco, CA, 
in the total amount of $159,000. 

Mr. Dwyer said there was a protest from the third bidder. The protest 
was referred to the City Attorney who said there were no grounds for 
the protest and recommended award of the contract.

that it is included in the annual Additions and Betterments Program.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0210 Resolution approving the settle- 

ment of the first cause of action 
of the litigated claim of Homer J. 
Olsen, Inc. against the City and 
County of San Francisco, as recom- 
mended by City Attorney and Airport 
staff, and requesting the Controller 
to allot funds and to draw a warrant 
in payment of said claim. 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0211 Resolution approving permit agree- 

ment, Metro Rent-A-Car. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this company has agreed to operate on a trial basis for 
three months. They will be allotted curb space and a telephone. At the 
end of three months, they will be evaluated and it will then be decided 
whether or not to extend their contract. 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0212 Resolution approving the final 

plans and specifications submitted 
by United Airlines showing the

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0215 Resolution approving the substi- 

tution of Cleveland Wrecking 
Company, San Francisco, California, 
as the demolition subcontractor, 
in lieu of Bay Wide Destruction 
Company, San Francisco, California, 
listed in the general contractor's 
original bid proposal for the 
subject contract. 



Mr. Dwyer stated the original subcontractor was unable to execute its 
contract and provide the required bonds with the general contractor. 
The substitution of the subcontractor will not increase the cost to 
the airport of the total work undertaken. 



* * * 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0216 Resolution rescinding bid call, 

public service agreement. 

Mr. Dwyer said when we requested the public service agreement, one of 
the items was the commission to be received by the airport based on 
the sale of greyhound tickets. Not that Greyhound is in negotiation 
with SamTrans for the sale of their rights to this line, it is recom- 
mended that this bid call be rescinded. 



* * * 



Further business before the Commission 



Mr. Dwyer stated he met with the Noise Abatement Committee and that 
there will be further meetings on the subject of appointment of members 
of the general public to the Commission, with a report back to the 
Commission. This was agreeable to Mr. William Hanekamp, who had pre- 
sented a paper on this subject at the previous Commission meeting. 



Mr. Dwyer stated the airport has received notice of the receipt of 
Federal funds in the amount of $4.1 million to be used on aprons for 
the North Terminal. He further stated that these funds cannot be used 
until the EIS is completed and Washington's final approval is obtained, 



Commissioner Lynn asked if there is a time limit for approval or ac- 
ceptance. He was told there was not but that the EIS has to be incor- 
porated into the final report. Mr. Dwyer stated he plans to go back 
to Washington next month to pursue this matter. 



There being no further business, the meeting adjo

City, specifically as listed in 
attached Exhibit "A". 

Mr. Dwyer stated that in the original agreement with the Airport 
Architects the Director of Airports is authorized to approve additional

Absent: Commissioner William K. Coblentz 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of October 19, 1976 
were approved and adopted as presented. 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0227 Resolution awarding Contract No. 1037, 

Improvements to Restrooms, Upper 
Level, Piers D and E, to Leon Carlen, 
General Building Contractor 3232 
Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 
94110, in the total amount of 
$49,300., including Alternate "A". 
Alternate "A" covers installation 
of floor tiles. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, stated the restrooms are in a 
deteriorated condition and need improvement. 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0228 Resolution awarding Contract No. 859, 

Improvements to Water Service, Central 
Terminal, to E. H. Morrill Company,

in the total amount of $27,150.00. 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0229 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications submitted by 
Pacific Telephone showing proposed 
changes to their public telephone 
facilities in the Central Terminal 
and the South Terminal lobbies. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the work will consist of Pacific Telephone removing their 
two telephone company service counters; installing automatic coin and bill 
changing machines; removing a block of fifteen phone booths which are 
located in the South Terminal ticket lobby near the entrance to Pier "re- 
installing ten of these booths at locations along the lobby walls; and 
installing a six-set telephone stand at the site of the existing service 
counter in the South Terminal lobby. There was discussion on the money- 
changing machines and the question was asked whether there would be a 
charge for their use, as is done at Dallas Airport where a customer receive 
only 90C in coins in return for a one dollar bill. Mr. Dwyer replied that 



* * * 



there would be no charge, and that customers would receive full change 
for their dollar bills. It was brought out that at oresent the service 
counter is manned only 8 hrs. a day, leaving the late passengers without 
service. This new coin machine will provide 24 hour a day service. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0230 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications submitted by 
Delta Airlines showing the proposed 
expansion of the inbound baggage hand- 
ling system at the south end of the 
Central Terminal baggage claim lobby. 

Mr. Dwyer said that one of the Airport's problems in the Central Terminal 
is baggage handling due to increased patronage. He said the present 
system is inadequate to handle the passenger growth; that some airlines 
have expanded their baggage handling facilities and that others would 
like to follow suit. He said further that Delta airlines in conjunction 
with other airlines, would like to construct an overhead conveyor from 
the rear of the terminal into the baggage claim lobby, expanding the 
existing baggage claim area, and install a new baggage claim device. The 
work would be done by Delta, in agreement with other affected airlines, 
at its own and sole expense and without rental credit. 

Mr. Robert Lee, Engineering/Planning Director, showed rending of the 
proposed baggage handling system and explained certain phases of it to 
the Commission. 

Some Commissioners questioned the feasibility of putting in a baggage 
system in that particular area where the Medical Center supply office 
is located, as well as the clearance around that for passenger traffic. 
They were advised there would be an 8 to 10 foot clearance around the 
area and that there should be no problem. Upon inquiry, the Commissioners 
were told the two remaining telephone booths would be relocated, but that 
the elevator would remain also, that Delta would be responsible for 
relocating the Medical Center supply office, and that this relocation has 
the approval of the Medical Clinic. 

Commissioner Chester asked how long we would exoect to use this facility 
and was told about 3 years. The Central Terminal will be remodeled 
during this period which will then eliminate the need for this temporary 
facility. Mr. Dwyer stated that installation of this overhead baggage 
handling system is the most economical and expeditious manner of handling 
this troublesome problem. 

* * * 

On the motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, the 
following resolution was adopted: 

Resolution approving the final olans 
and specifications submitted by 
United Airlines showing the proposed 
expansion of the aircraft parts clean- 
ing room for the overhaul shop in 
Building 15 at the Maintenance Base. 

Mr. Dwyer said the work will be done by United Airlines at its own and 
sole expense and without rental credit. 

* * * 



No. 76-0231 



On motion of Commissioner Lynn, seconded by Commissioner Chester, the 
folliwng resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0232 



Resolution approving Modification 
No. 18 to professional services 
agreement with San Francisco Airport 
Architects, to provide additional 
services related to revision of 
contract plans for Airport Contract 
No. 950, Boarding Area H & I and 
Connector, in order to incorporate 
changes requested by United Airlines. 



Mr. Dwyer stated that the actual costs of making the requested revisions 
to the contract documents will be at the sole expense of United Airlines, 
and at a total amount not to exceed $3,225., which sum United has 
deposited with City. 



When agenda item No. 7 was brought up for consideration by the Commission, 
Mr. William K. Jakeman of the construction firm of Robert E. McKee, Inc. 
requested permission to address the Commission on the subject. He stated 
that although the recommendation had been made by the Airports staff for 
the substitution of Fischback & Moore as a subcontractor for Signal Hill 
Electric, Inc. because of the latter* s inability to submit the required 
bond, Robert E. McKee, Inc. now wished to make a further substitution of 
Rosenden Electric in place of Fischback & Moore subcontractor. 

Since this further substitution had not been discussed with Airports staff, 
it was decided by the Commission to take this item off the calendar to 
provide the staff an opportunity to investigate this request for further 
substitution. Mr. Jakeman pointed out that the situation is critical in 
terms of time, and was advised by the Commission that a telephone poll 
would be taken within two days of this meeting, based on staff 
recommendation, which would eliminate the delay involved if the matter 
were to be put over to the next regular meeting of the Commission. This 
telephone poll would then be confirmed at the next meeting. 



Mr. Hanekamp, a private citizen, requested to be heard by the Commission 
on the subject of noise abatement. President McDonnell advised 
Mr. Hanekamp that the next meeting of the Noise Abatement Committee would 
be held on November 5, 1976, which he and other Commissioners would 
attend, and that at that meeting a full discussion would be held on the 
subject of appointing two private citizens to the Noise Abatement 
Committee. As a result, President McDonnell asked Mr. Hanekamp to delay 
his address to the Commisison until the next regularly scheduled meeting 
on November 16th, as it was his feeling that the matter would be resolved 
by that time.

The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of November 2, 1976, 
were approved and adopted as presented. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Lynn, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0233 Resolution approving the substitu- 

tion of Fischbach & Moore, Inc., 
San Francisco CA as the electrical 
subcontractor in lieu of Signal 
Hill Electric, Inc., Mountain View, 
CA listed in the general contrac- 
tor's original bid proposal for 
the subject contract. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, stated this item was previ- 
ously on calendar with a request to change the subcontractor. It was 
since decided to retain the subcontractor as submitted in the previous 
Commission meeting, poll the Commission, and ratify the telephone poll 
at this meeting. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
Agenda Item No. 2 was taken off calendar for further study. Repre- 
sentatives of Landor Associates, the consultants advising on carpet and 
tile in the North Terminal Complex, showed the proposed layout and areas 
that are involved. Some of the Commissioners felt that the vast area 
of space to be carpeted should have some type of design relief rather 
than the planned design of all one color for both esthetics and ease of 
replacement. The consultant stated due to the configuration of the 
terminal, this was felt to be the best carpet and tile configuration and 
that it would present a uniform appearance throughout the terminal. 
Commissioner Lynn then asked if the cost estimate included installation 
and was advised that it did. Also, when questioned about the tile, the 
consultant stated the purpose of the tile in some high traffic areas 
was to save wear and tear on the carpet.

this required changes in utility routing.

Further Business Before the Commission 

Commissioner McDonnell noted that the subject of a "public" repre- 
sentative on the Sound Abatement Committee had been broached to the 
Commission by Mr. Hanekamp, a private citizen, at a previous meeting 
and discussion of the subject had been deferred pending review. 

Commissioner McDonnell set forth the purpose, goals and history of 
the Sound Abatement Center. Each month a public meeting is held, 
preceded by a technical meeting which is closed except to committee 
members or invited participants. The reason for the closed technical 
meeting is to promote free interchange of comments and suggestions 
between the flight and other technical personnel involved and the 
presence of other would inhibit the discussion and impair the work of 
the committee, if not its very existence. 

Captain Huff of American Airlines explained his reaction, as a com- 
mittee member, to enlarging the committee by including "public" 
representation. He felt that the present method was the onlv way to 
maintain a functioning group to deal with these matters. 

Mr. Donald Brink, Area Coordinator for the Federal Aviation Admini- 
stration, endorsed continuing the present method of operating. He 
stated "The fact that the airlines, the airport and other technical 
experts can meet together to work on the problem in a frank and open 
way and then take the product of their labor into the open public 
forum for discussion and feedback is, in my view, one of the major 
factors in the productivity and effectiveness of the San Francisco 
Noise Abatement Center." 

Mr. Hanekamp spoke on the subject and also his request for a noise sen 
in the McLauren Park area. Commissioner McDonnell stated that the 
Commission staff would look into the sensor matter and Mr. Hanekamp 
would be contacted when appropriate. 



There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 4:00 PM.

Call to Order:

Present: Commissioners William E. McDonnell, 

William K. Coblentz, William H. 
Chester, Morris Bernstein, and 
Ruth Kadish. 

Absent: None 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of November 16, 1976, 
were approved and adopted as presented. 

* * * 

Commission President McDonnell welcomed the newly appointed Commis- 
sioner, Mrs. Ruth Kadish, who had been sworn in only that morning. 
Commissioner Coblentz also welcomed Commissioner Kadish, and made a 
motion to allow her to abstain from voting due to unf amiliarity with 
agenda items. Commissioner Chester seconded the motion, which was 
approved without question. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0249 Resolution approving the compromise 

and settlement of a litigated claim 
by Homer J. Olsen, Inc., in the 
amount of $23,950.00 as recommended 
by the City Attorney and requesting 
the Controller to certify funds and 
to draw a warrant for the payment 
of said claim. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, explained the item had been 
taken off calendar several months ago because staff had thought this 
settlement involved a dispute between a contractor and subcontractor. 
The City Attorney's opinion, however, was that Pacific Gas & Electric 
Company was the only utility available and could not be considered a 
subcontractor so the claim was legitimate and could be paid without 
setting a precedent. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 

the following resolution was adopted subject to conditions further stated: 

No. 76-0250 Resolution approving Preliminary "Plan 

A" for finish flooring in the North 
Terminal Complex, and authorizing Landor 
Associates to proceed with the prepara- 
tion of contract documents for Airport 
Contracts No. 980 and 980A. 

Mr. Dwyer explained this item had been taken off calendar at the last 
meeting due to a Commission request for additional information. Also, 
a suggestion had been made that the carpet be a color different from 
the one previously discussed, or the use of two colors to break the 
monotony of a single color tone. Mr. Dwyer said the previous presen- 
tation had been further detailed and asked Mr. Glen Gardner, represent- 
ing Walter S. Landor & Associates, to explain.

76 - 99 



Mr. Gardner said the purpose of his presentation was to gain 
Commission approval for the use of tile and carpet in the terminal 
area, with strips of a different color to break up the larger 
expanses of carpeting. 

Commissioner Kadish questioned the type of fabric, and when told it 
was nylon and nylon fibers, asked about shocks from electricity. 
Mr. Gardner assured the Commission there would be no static problem. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if the fabric was manufactured by a 
number of firms and Mr. Gardner said it was available at several 
places . 

Commissioner McDonnell stated the Commission was now considering for 
approval only the placement of tile, carpeting and the different 
colored strips of carpeting, with Mr. Gardner to come back when the 
exact fabrics and colors were available for approval. 

Mr. Gardner said he would like final approval of the whole design at 
this meeting, and Mr. Robert Lee, Deputy Director for Planning, 
Development and Engineering, suggested that due to the necessary lead 
time, Commission approval be given to the tile and carpet placement, 
with exact colors and fabrics decided later. 

Commissioner McDonnell objected, saying no one had informed the 
Commission there would be different colors of carpet and asked if 
staff had previous knowledge of the plan. Mr. Lee said the current 
presentation was essentially the same scheme as used in the preliminary 
stage, only with a wood floor covering in lieu of all carpeting. 

Commissioner Coblentz said Commissioner Kadish had commented to him 
about the color of the tile planned, and Mr. Gardner explained it was 
called "fawn" and that it had proved attractive and durable at the 
Sacramento Airport, Stonestown Mall, and in some BART station areas. 
Mr. Gardner agreed to furnish exact locations this week to the Commission. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that delay would interfere with time 
schedules. He then reiterated his motion to approve only this part of 
the item; Commissioner Chester seconded the motion. 

A member of the audience, Mr. Ray Thomas, questioned Commission use of 
carpet instead of all tile, which he understood was five times as 
expensive. Commissioner Coblentz enumerated four reasons for carpeting: 
for better durability, maintenance, esthetics and acoustics. However, 
in the baggage areas and at ticket counters where debris was likely to 
be dropped or floors scuffed, tile would be installed. Further, both 
staff and Commissioners had, at their own expense, visited airports at 
Dallas/Ft. Worth, New York City, Tampa and in foreign countries and had 
seen the enduring qualities of carpet, both for wear and for maintenance 
purposes. Mr. Gardner informed Mr. Thomas he had misunderstood the 
agenda item, that the cost quoted for carpeting was per square yard 
while the cost for the tile was per square foot. 

The vote for approval of this item at this time was only for placement 
of tile and carpet and where the light and dark design would be located.

On motion of Commissioner Coblentz , seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 



No. 76-0251 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to call for 
bids for Airport Contract No. 812, 
Reconstruction and Overlay to Runway 
10R-28L. The work in general, consists 
of reconstructing certain specific areas 
of Runway 10R-2 8L by excavating and re- 
placing the deteriorated base courses 
and by adding increased thicknesses of 
bituminous material in order to 
strengthen the runway for wide bodied 
aircraft together with a general 
overlay of the major sections of Runway 
10R-28L with asphaltic concrete surfacing. 

Mr. Dwyer explained this item was a request for approval of the final 
plans and specifications and authorization to call for bids for repair of 
the runway. He explained the work had been delayed due to the absence of 
Federal funds which had just become available and would reimburse 75% of 
the eligible costs. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, approved by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0252 Resolution approving the plans and 

specifications and authorizing bid 
call for Airport Contract No. 783, 
Replacement of Air Handling Units, 
South Terminal. 

Mr. Dwyer explained this item involved relocation of some worn-out 
maintenance units in the South Terminal to a different location for 
easier maintenance. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0253 Resolution ratifying the action of the 

Director of Airports in approving in 
accordance with Airports Commission 
Resolution 70-0044, Change Order No. 
774-1 and requesting Controller's certi- 
fication of Debit Modification No. 1 in 
the amount of $1,712.50. 

Mr. Dwyer said this item was to ratify the Director's action in approv- 
ing the erection of a temporary fence in connection with the landscaping 
of the entrance roads. Commissioner McDonnell asked Mr. Lee the approxi- 
mate completion date of the landscaping contract, and when the Bufano 
statue would be moved. Mr. Lee said contract completion date was May, 
and the statue would be placed in mid- January.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0254 Resolution accepting the work under 

Airport Contract No. 944, Removal of 
Obsolete Pavement Markings, as satis- 
factorily completed; approving and 
requesting the Controller's certifi- 
cation of Credit Modification No. 1 
in the amount of $1,410.00; extending 
the completion date from November 16, 
1976 to November 17, 1976; and approving 
final payment in the amount of $10,340 
in favor of the contractor, Riley's 
Striping Service, 2 312B Bates Avenue, 
Concord, CA 94520.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0255 Resolution authorizing agreements with 

United, Trans World, American Airlines 
and Pan American World Airways and 
other airport tenants on payment of 
disputed electric energy charges. 

Mr. Dwyer explained that Hetch Hetchy, which sets power rates for City 
departments, had twice raised rates. The first raise had been approved 
by the Public Utilities Commission, and the Airport was bound, under 
the Charter, to charge its tenants these rates. The airlines have paid 
their utility bills at the former rate but have filed a lawsuit charging 
the second raise was not properly set. All airlines have been paying 
under protest, except for TWA, United Airlines and American, which have 
not paid for the past year and owe approximately $66,000. These air- 
lines have asked for an agreement in which they agree to pay the new 
rates as of July 1976, without prejudice to their court case. If the 
court rules in favor of the airlines, a refund will be due them; if the 
Airport wins, they will owe the Airport for charges during the previous 
year. Staff recommends approval because the case may be long in the 
courts and outstanding bills could run into the millions. There would 
be no additional costs. Based on the proposed agreement, only the one 
year at the disputed rate would be due. Mr. George Baglin, Utilities 
General Counsel, stated his belief that this was an advantageous agreement 

Commissioner Chester asked if the agreement had provision for interest. 
Mr. Dwyer said it did not, but interest on the amount owed would- be 
requested in the lawsuit.

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0256 Resolution approving Standard Oil name 

change to CHEVRON, U.S.A., INC.

compromising claims which resulted in 
payment under $2,500.00.

Further Business Before the Commission 

A resolution, No. 76-0258, was introduced, seconded and approved, 
honoring Commissioner Wallace R. Lynn, who has served with distinction 
since the inception of the Airports Commission on September 1, 1970. 



Mr. Dwyer related the events pertaining to Yellow Cab and Airporter 
Bus service at the Airport, saying that on November 30, he had received 
a telephone call from Mr. Charles O'Connor, Vice President of Yellow 
Cab, who stated that he was unable to obtain the necessary insurance 
coverage and would halt cab service as of midnight that day. There 
has been no Yellow Cab service at the Airport for a week, but service 
has been adequate, since Mr. Dwyer said he immediately authorized an 
open stand to all cabs on a "first-come, first serve" basis. 

At the same time, the Airporter, which provides bus service between 
San Francisco and the Airport, halted service. Mr. Dwyer reported, 
however, that early in the morning of December 1, Mr. Stephan 
Leonoudakis called to say he was negotiating to purchase Airporter. 
Bus service was restored to normal that afternoon and Mr. Leonoudakis 
has since reported the purchase money is in escrow and the new buyers 
will shortly appear before the Commission seeking approval of the 
purchase. This approval will not be granted, however, until all monies 
owing are paid in full. 

The City Attorney has advised Mr. Dwyer that there are two options: 
to terminate Yellow Cab's agreement immediately and authorize service 
on an independent basis or, secondly, to give Yellow Cab 30 days' 
notice of termination unless the necessary funds are forthcoming. 

Mr. Dwyer recommended the 30 days' notice of termination. Should there 
be a change in the status, such as cancellation by the Police Commission 
of permits and license, however, then the policy would be for an open 
cabstand at the Airport. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if the machinery was available to handle 
such an operation, and Mr. Dwyer replied there would be an interval 
necessary to work out details, but it should be in full operation shortly. 

David Frankel, an independent driver representing the Taxi Drivers' 
Committee for an Open Airport, spoke at length about the advantages of 
an open airport and referred to last year when Yellow Cab was on strike. 
He said he had submitted a proposal then for handling an open cab situ- 
ation at the Airport. Mr. Dwyer told Mr. Frankel his proposal was on 
file in the Director's office. 

John Brandi, of Orange Cab Company, spoke on behalf of the independent 
cab companies, mentioning that many companies and drivers would be put 
on an "assigned risk plan" for insurance which would greatly alter the 
situation for insurance coverage availability.

Mr. Michael Chleyer, attorney for Yellow Cab, asked the Commission to 
consider the recommendation that Yellow Cab be given the 30 days' 
notice, provided for in Section 8 of the agreement. If the situation 
is not mended, or if the permits expire, the Commission would be pro- 
tected because the same agreement section calls for automatic cancel- 
lation. Thus, staff and Director are also given time to work out the 
details for a different operation. Commissioner McDonnell asked 
Mr. Ohleyer if he understood that Yellow Cab was liable for 4.5C for 
each deplaning passenger during this period, while the independents 
are not paying the Airport. Mr. Ohleyer said he understood this was 
the case. 

Mr. Al Morris, President of Veterans Cab Company, also representing 
Luxor and DeSoto, questioned Yellow Cab's ability to pay this 4.5C 
fee in the interim, but Mr. Ohleyer said Yellow Cab is liable as long 
as the agreement is in effect and that the airport is covered by a 
bond. Mr. Morris went on to say that he believed Yellow Cab should be 
given an opportunity to dispose of their permits, but in the event this 
proves impossible, the three companies he represented would have no 
objection to an open airport. 

There was further discussion from Mr. Frankel, Mr. Lloyd Small, of 
Luxor, and an independent driver, Mr. Ray Thomas, regarding bonding, 
insurance and the money Yellow Cab owed. Mr. Dwyer assured the 
Commission that the insurance was only one of the conditions Yellow 
Cab would be forced to meet. 

Mr. Bill Lazar, manager of Luxor, told the Commission that Luxor, 
Veterans and DeSoto met the requirements of a million dollars insurance, 
radios, etc., and spoke at length of the different transportation 
companies working at the Airport. 

A driver, not identified, said Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Nelder had 
said to open the City to all cabs, but Deputy City Attorney James Brasil 
replied this did not apply to the Airport as it functions under a 
Commission . 

Mr. Earl Simonson, independent driver, stated his views that the Airport 
was owned by the City of San Francisco and thus should allow only San 
Francisco licensed cabs. Mr. Brasil replied this was not legally possible, 
the Director does not have the power to prevent all cabs from entering 
the Airport, in view of the contract situation. 

There was some discussion about Yellow Cab's alleged abuses of drivers' 
rights, which Commissioner McDonnell terminated, saying the Commission 
appreciated the drivers' feelings but concentration could only be on 
matters which could be controlled by the Commission. 

Mr. Brasil stated it was always required to give a "reasonable length 
of time" on cancellation notices, and Commissioner McDonnell suggested 
placing Yellow Cab back on the calendar for the December 21 meeting, 
instead of waiting the full thirty days. 

Commissioner Coblentz commended Mr. Dwyer for his prompt action in 
opening the Airport to all cabs in this emergency situation, to ensure 
the proper transportation accommodations for the public. 

Commissioner Coblentz moved to extend the Yellow Cab agreement through 
December 21, contingent upon their licenses and permits being in full 
effect. Commissioner Bernstein seconded the motion, which passed 
without further question. (Resolution No. 76-0259 dated December 7, 1976) 



76 - 104 



Mr. Dwyer requested the City Attorney to prepare a resolution cover- 
ing the necessary points discussed. 

An independent driver asked the Commission to investigate the rest- 
room facilities for cab drivers at the Airport, and Mr. Lee was 
instructed to follow through on this. 



There being no further business before the Commission, the meeting 
was adjourned at 3:45 P.M.

Absent: Commissioner William K. Coblentz 



The Minutes of the Airports Commission meeting of December 7, 1976, 
were approved and adopted as presented: 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0260 Resolution approving the employment 

of Interactive Resources, Inc. of 
Point Richmond, California to pro- 
vide professional services for a 
feasibility study on the use of 
solar energy at the Airport. 

Mr. William Dwyer, Director of Airports, stated that as a result of the 
Commission's authorization for staff to put out proposals for a solar 
energy feasibility study, Interactive Resources, Inc. was awarded the 
professional services contract. He stated that several firms were 
interviewed and Interactive Resources was selected. He then asked a 
representative of the firm, Mr. Tom Budd, to speak on their behalf. 
Mr. Budd related some of the firm's credits and gave a detailed outline 
of the services they planned to perform, such as making an evalua- 
tion of the existing equipment and deciding which portions of it could 
still be used, cost estimates and schematic plans for implementation. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if these cost plans would be specific 
in type and size of equipment and cost so the Commissioners can make a 
judgement to go ahead with implementation. He said it would. 

Commissioner Kadish inquired if this study could be accomplished within 
a 4-month period and was told that it could. Mr. Budd related the 
various groups for which his company had performed these services and 
added that some projects have received grants from HUD as a result of 
their study. He said one of their objectives is to point out oppor- 
tunities for financing by federal agencies. 

Commissioner Kadish stated she would like to go on record as commending 
the Airports Commission for pursuing this means of developing energy. 
It is believed that the airport is the first agency of City government 
to lead the way in developing alternative forms of energy.

76 - 106 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0261 Resolution approving the final plans 

and specifications submitted by Host 
International, Inc. showing the 
proposed modifications to the Central 
Terminal Coffee shop on the first 
floor and alterations to their 
restaurant support and employee 
facilities on the ground floor. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated this item has been reviewed and asked if 
there were any questions. Mr. Dwyer stated there were no basic changes 
made. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0262 Resolution awarding Airport Contract 

No. 792, Overlay Terminal Apron 
between Piers D & E, to O.C. Jones 
and Sons, 1520 Fourth Street, 
Berkeley, California, 94710, in the 
total amount of $150,530.00. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this is a request to make an award of contract previously 
approved by the Commission, and that he recommends the award. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0263 Resolution approving and ratifying 

the action of the Director of Airports 
in approving and requesting the 
Controller's certification of Debit 
Modification No. 8, in the total 
amount of $16,430.25, which incor- 
porates Change Orders 25 - 30, 
authorizing payment for the con- 
tractor to provide for the addition 
of reinforcing steel and change in 
concrete, deletion of phosphoric 
acid wash on miscellaneous metal 
items, alter 12-inch steel channels 
along second level of the south 
window wall and vestibules, deletion 
of gray color additive in precast 
panels at ground level, installation 
of 1,146 feet of #4/0 copper 15 KV 
cable and installation of 4-inch 
high concrete curbs and new doors 
at electrical substation TB. 

Commissioner McDonnell requested Mr. Bob Lee to explain. Mr. Lee re- 
sponded stating the cable was old r found to be faulty and could not be 
used, and therefore had to be replaced. 

* * * 



76 - 107 



On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Kadish, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0264 Resolution approving the employment 

of Tracor Sciences & Systems, Inc., 
6500 Tracor Lane, Austin, Texas, to 
modify and make improvements to the 
existing Airport Noise Monitoring 
System. 

Mr. Dwyer stated the noise monitoring system requires modification. At 
the present time the microphones are exposed to the wind and when it is 
over 20 miles per hour, it distorts the sounds of the aircraft which the 
system monitors. The new system will have the capability of blocking 
out all sounds except the sounds of aircraft. 

Commissioner McDonnell requested Mr. Feener, Director for Noise Abatement, 
to explain some of the items listed in the documents accompanying his 
Calendar. Mr. Feener explained there will be some new wind measuring 
equipment at six of the sites, which will be capable of handling all 13 
sites . 

When a question was raised regarding the McLaren Park site, Mr. Feener 
stated the site was measured and attempts are being made to acquire the 
type of equipment that could be left at the site and which would provide 
the airport with the type of information desired. 

Commissioner Kadish stated when she visited the Noise Abatement Division 
the other day a train went by. She wondered if that noise would be 
included in the reading. She was told that the new equipment would be 
capable of separating the sounds. 

Commissioner McDonnell commented that San Francisco was the only city 
that is well within all the requirements for aircraft noise abatement 
in the State. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Kadish, seconded by Commissioner Chester, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0265 Resolution approving Qantas Sublease 

of Small Office in South Terminal to 
Continental Airlines. 

A question was raised as to whether a profit was being made by Qantas 
in this sublease. Mr. Dwyer stated there was no profit involved. 

* * * 

On motion of Commissioner Chester, seconded by Commissioner Bernstein, 
the following resolution was adopted: 

No. 76-0266 Resolution approving the budget for 

the Construction Management Con- 
sultants, a joint venture of Sverdrup 
& Parcel and Associates, Inc. and 
Stone, Marraccini and Patterson, to 
provide construction management and 
design review services for the period 
January 1, 1977 to December 31, 1977, 
in the total amount of $2,250,000. 

Mr. Dwyer stated this item covers the budget for 1977 of the Construc- 
tion Management Consultants. He added that each year they must come 
to the Commission for approval of their budget, which is reviewed by 
the Engineering staff of Mr. Robert Lee. He was asked to explain why 
there is an increase over the budget requests of last year. Mr. Lee 



-more- 



responded that the late sale of bonds was only for a period of 10 months; 
last year there was a gradual build-up of the working forces to a total 
of 50 people. He said he cut the budget 13% based on the actual expendi- 
tures for this year. It is expected that $59 million of construction 
will be completed and that the Garage and North Terminal should be com- 
pleted by November 1978, and that at that time the CMC budget should drop. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren, a private citizen, failed to see how the pro- 
gressive sale of bonds correlates with what staff is going to do in 1978. 

Mr. Dwyer stated we have sold enough bonds to take care of all these 
jobs even if we have no further sales. 

* * * 

Further Business Before the Commission 

Mr. Dwyer stated at the last meeting the Commission authorized an 
extension of Yellow Cab agreement for two weeks. During that time, he 
said, he and staff have been very busy preparing for a possible alternate. 
He called on Mr. Ohleyer, Attorney representing Yellow Cab, and asked for 
an opinion from him regarding the matter. 

Mr. Ohleyer stated that according to his knowledge, negotiations are 
underway for a sale of the company. He said that he has been informed 
that about $300,000 has been turned over to the Labor Commissioner to 
pay the back salaries. He said they expect to be in operation by next 
week. He also said they expect to petition the court for a reorganization, 
and that their position is to request from the Commission a further 
extension to December 2 8th on that contract. 

Commissioner McDonnell inquired if this would necessitate a special 
meeting or could it be done as an action taken by telephone poll. 

Mr. George Baglin, Utilities Gen. Counsel, stated it would necessarily 
be done by special meeting. 

Mr. Dwyer stated there is a prospective temporary operator for the cabs, 
but there still are some details to be worked out before coming to the 
Commission. He suggested instead of a special meeting to wait until next 
meeting and this would give the Commission an opportunity to get additional 
facts. He stated we would like to have information from the City Attorney 
as to what the situation would be if we extended the contract. He added 
that any extension would be conditioned on the fact that they would pay 
all the back money due the city. Mr. Ohleyer stated that this is not a 
bankruptcy proceeding but a petition for reorganization. Attorneys in 
Los Angeles have filed such petition. 

Mr. Robert Lesley, representing employees of Wausaw, stated that Yellow 
Cab is already beyond the bond penalty. He also wondered why the 
Airporter contract has not been brought up, since it is owned by Yellow 
Cab. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated this would be taken up after they completed 
discussion on Yellow Cab. 

Mr. David Franklin stated he wondered why the airport contract has to 
be contingent upon what happens to Yellow Cab. He said this is the 
third time this year that "Yellow" has been out. Commissioner McDonnell 
stated we have gone over this several times. 

-more- 



76 - 109 



Mr. Jim Allen stated his opposition to an extension of the Yellow 
Cab contract and brought up permits, stating they go back to City at 
midnight. 

Mr. Ohleyer stated the permits do not go back to the City at midnight. 
There is a hearing before the Police Commission which will determine 
what happens to the permits. 

Commissioner Chester, addressing himself to Mr. Ohleyer, stated he 
understood Yellow Cab would be willing to continue to pay 4.5C for 
deplaning passengers. He asked how he could guarantee the Commission 
would get the money. Mr. Ohleyer said they sold 13 cabs to pay off City. 

Commissioner Bernstein, correcting the statement previously made, said 
the money did not come from the sale of 13 cabs in San Francisco. He 
said there was a group of permits held by the bonding office. Mr. Ohleyer 
stated he had just received a phone call, and the attorneys for Yellow 
Cab have filed under Chapter 11 action in court. There was apparently 
a restraining order. The trustee holds those permits. Any action taken 
by the Commission will be subject to the decision of the Court. 

Mr. Baglin was asked what is the effect of their filing. He answered 
that the Commission also has the right to terminate this contract under 
the following condition: "filing of a petition v/hich automatically 
terminates this agreement". 

Mr. Ohleyer stated they did not file a petition to have Yellow Cab 
declared bankrupt. They do not want to put the pension fund in jeopardy. 

Mr. Baglin stated that is a legal matter which calls for invoking the 
powers of a bankruptcy court. 

Mr. Ohleyer stated most contracts usually provide an alternative. We 
don't have that clause in this contract. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that we ask Mr. Baglin to research the 
matter to find out if the petition is for reorganization or bankruptcy. 
It was felt there is an ambiguity in this agreement. It was also felt 
it might be construed as not providing an automatic termination clause. 

The Commission was informed if they wanted to have a declaration that 
this agreement is terminated, it should apply for a judgment declaring 
it terminated. 

Mr. Baglin said it would stay any action of the Commission. It is not 
the option of the Commission to terminate the contract. He said he 
would want to examine any order from the Federal court. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated this looks like a legal problem. At the 
moment we have not received any income other than what is under the 
contract from Yellow Cab. He further reviewed where we stand in the 
matter, stating we have gone over the bond about $25,000. He stated 
the suggested alternative was to put in a short haul stand and one long 
haul stand; and suggested we put it over until next meeting and discuss 
what our options are at that time. Mr. Baglin will have seen the 
documents and will be better able to advise us at that time. 



76 - 110 



Commissioner McDonnell asked Mr. Dwyer whether staff would be able to put 
in an open stand. He advised Yellow Cab representative that if Commission 
sxtends this to the next meeting, that does not obligate us to release; or 
bellow Cab to continue that contract outside the Federal jurisdiction; 
it does not bind the Commission to continue Yellow Cab beyond that date, 
bellow Cab will be obligated up to that time for income, but the Com- 
mission is not obligated to continue the contract beyond that date. 
Mso, when the Commission meets on the 4th, the action should be on the 
third so that the Commission can act on the 4th. At that time, Yellow Cab 
representatives would be reporting up to the third of January regardless 
of what the Commission decides beyond that. Also, the open airport would 
be ready to go. 

Commissioner Chester inquired if that would include the fee schedule, 
and was told it would be a recommendation to start operating an open 
sab stand, on a temporary basis for three months — to be extended to 
3an Francisco cabs only. 

Commissioner McDonnell asked Mr. Baglin what is likely to be the 
position of the Federal court in this type of problem. 

"lr. Baglin stated there is a possibility the trustee might exercise 
lis option of 6 days in which to accept or reject this contract. 

Commissioner McDonnell, asking for clarification regarding the possi- 
Dility that Yellow Cab could be working under that contract and by 
:ourt order it must be kept in court for 60 days. The comment was 
:hat ordinarily the bankruptcy does not infringe on the rights. The 
contract specifies that the Commission can terminate. He asked Mr. 
Dhleyer if he understood that there is a possibility that the Commission 
tfill have an open airport. Mr. Ohleyer replied affirmatively. 

tr. Baglin asked if the Commission wanted to ask Mr. Ohleyer if he 
:hinks Yellow Cab can have the money "on the line" by January 3rd. 

Commissioner Bernstein stated he felt it is the Federal court, through 
:he trustee, that would make the decision. Then the Commission could 
iave an open stand to serve the public. The Federal court will decide 
■/hat Commission action should be. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that Yellow Cab should be given until 
nidnight of the third to notify us. The Commission would then act on 
:he 4th. 

^ member of the audience, Bob Synuch, stated his group would be very 
nuch opposed to any plan that would allow non-San Francisco cabs to 
lse the airport. He said tentative plans for a short line at the 
iirport was unsuccessful and that it created a problem of pay-offs. 

:ommissioner McDonnell felt this was the wrong time to bring up this 
>roblem. 

Commissioner Bernstein, in response to the above, asked the City 
attorney to advise the Commission on the legality of restricting 
:he Airport to San Francisco taxi drivers only. 



76 - 111 



Mike Parrish said it had nothing to do with delays in operation. 
It has created revenue for people who live in San Francisco. He 
said we have no regulation over San Mateo cabs. If we were to 
open the airport to San Mateo cabs, the Commission must take into 
account that we will create a situation that would be out of our 
control. He then asked if this would be put out to contract. 
Commissioner McDonnell stated that would be answered at another 
time. This is a legal matter. 

Commissioner Chester said he did not disagree with what was said 
but he felt this was a matter to refer to counsel. He said accord- 
ing to state laws, one cannot discriminate and dictate which cabs 
can operate at the airport and which cannot. The Commission can only 
act on matters that have already been reviewed and approved by the 
City Attorney. 

Mr. Paul Chase, a Sausalito cab driver said he proposed that airport 
be open to all cabs and he felt it was unfair to have to bring 
passengers from Marin County and have to "dead-head" back with an 
empty cab. 

Mr. Robert Abraham said he felt the Airport and City of San Francisco 
should allow out-of-town cabs into this city and airport. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated at the time of the next Commission 
meeting they will hear from the City Attorney his opinion as to what 
the legal options are for the airport. We cannot move on the subject 
now. Staff is working on it. In the meantime, any practical infor- 
mation which you can submit to Mr. Dwyer's office may be helpful. 

Mr. Earl Simonson asked Commissioner Chester to repeat his position; 
which he did. 

Mr. David Franklin said he would like to know what other cabs would be 
permitted on the airport if Yellow Cab does stay in business. 

Commissioner McDonnell stated the Commission cannot make any promises 
to anyone . 

Commissioner Kadish made the motion that the Commission extend the 
existing agreement until midnight of January third and take action on 
January 4th. 

Commissioner Chester seconded the motion and stated that because of the 
legal ramifications we are postponing action; Commission is extending 
the agreement of Yellow Cab until midnight of January 3rd due to the 
need for legal clarification of the existing agreement. 

Returning to the question raised concerning the Airporter, Commissioner 
McDonnell asked Mr. Dwyer to explain. Mr. Dwyer said that although the 
Airporter is a subsidiary ' of Yellow Cab, it is still operating under new 
owners and that the money is in escrow. One of the commitments is that 
they pay back all the money owed. Mr. Dwyer has sent a letter to them 
requesting that they take some action on this. Mr. Dwyer said he talked 
with the new buyer and there is no immediate call to terminate their 
contract. 



76 - 112 



It was pointed out that the Commission has the right to terminate 
now if it so desires. 

Commissioner McDonnell said he would like to have additional infor- 
mation before the next Agenda as to what the situation is. He added 
he would leave that to the City Attorneys, and that it would be 
brought to the next meeting.
