Following are reports on remaining contracts in the First Stage Development 
Program . 



RB-23 / Fueling System, Satellite & Terminal Areas : Underground piping is being 
installed adjacent to concourse ff 3. All other work is completed and the 
fueling system is in operation serving all gate positions in use in the new 
terminal facilities. 

RB-44, Parking Lot & Lower Level Road : The remaining section of the parking lot 
is being graded and sub-grade is being prepared for paving. Sidewalks and 
curbs are being constructed. It is estimated that the entire parking lot with 
the exception of an area adjacent to the existing water reservoir will be 
completed and in operation in September. 

RB-47, Restaurant Superstructure: Precast wall panels are being installed in the 

lower level. Interior masonry walls are being erected. Structural concrete 
work within the building has been completed and structural steel is being 
erected for the kitchen and private dining room enclosures. Heating and 
plumbing piping and ductwork is being installed thoughout the building. 
Efforts are being concentrated to complete the lower level area at the 
earliest possible date. Work on the overall contract is substantially on 
schedule . 

RB-48, Entrance Road Lighting: Work started on the final phase of this contract 
on June 25th. This work will remove temporary light standards and install 
permanent poles at the old intersection of the entrance road and Mannheim 
Road before relocation. 

RB-49, S?gns / Clocks and Public Address System: The signs and the clock system 

have been completed. The public address system is in operation, but special 
heat resistant speakers remain to be installed in the ceiling area where 
heating elements are located. 

RB-53, Hangar Area Paving: Grading and preparation of sub-grade for apron paving 
adjacent to building *3 is completed. Two gate positions have been paved 
and are now being used by tenant airlines on a restricted basis. Some delay 
has been encountered due to requests by tenant airlines for the addition of 
underground starting systems and other revisions. 

RB-55, Exterior Signing: Bids for traffic and directional signs were received on 

May 1, 1962. Since bids exceeded estimates drawings are being revised and 
this contract will be rebid shortly. 

RB-56, Airfield Lighting, Phase II: Bids for this work which will complete the air- 
field lighting system provided in the revenue bond program were received on 
June 4, 1962. The low bidder was Premier Electrical Contractors, Inc. with 
a bid of $59,454.00. Work was started on June 20th. 



RB-57, Landscaping: Bids were received on April 17, 1962. The low bid of 
$244,620. 15 was submitted by G . Wilken Landscaping Co. Work was 
started on April 25th. Excessive heat early in the year delayed some of 
the planting work. Some shrubbery was installed in the Terminal Area and 
along the entrance road. Remaining landscape work will be completed in 
the next planting season in Fall. 

RB-58, Grading, Topsoiling and Seeding : Engineering has been completed and 

bids will be received in July for this work which includes general grading 
of the airport and topsoiling and seeding in the Terminal and Hangar Areas. 

RB-59, Mail Boxes : Bids were received on April 12, 1962 for mail boxes to be in- 
stalled in the terminal buildings. The low bidder was George F. Moring Co. 
with a bid of $1 1,500.00. Fabrication of this equipment started May 28th . 

RB-60, International Building ^2, Foundations & Structural Framing : Only one bid 
was received on June 5th for this work. This bid which was not felt to be 
competitive was rejected and this contract will be rebid with Contract 
RB-64. Entire International Building will then be constructed as a single 
contract . 

RB-61, Fire Protection System: Bids were received on June 22, 1962. The low 

bidder was S.J. Reynolds Co. with a bid of $387, 1 17.00. Bids are being 
reviewed and a starting date has not yet been established. This contract 
provides new equipment in the old water reservoir for additional fire pro- 
tection, fire sprinkler mains in storage areas in the terminal buildings, and 
other miscellaneous work on the fire protection system. 

RB-63, Central Heating & Air Conditioning Control System: Engineering is pro- 
ceeding for this supervisory control system which will monitor heating and 
air conditioning equipment throughout the terminal area. 

RB-64, International Building Superstructure & Expanded Weather Sta tion: Engineer- 
ing is nearing completion and bids for this work will be solicited shortly. 

Attached is a report received from the City Comptroller showing the activity of the 
revenue bond funds. 



Yours very truly,

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: 

The proceeds from the sale of $lli5,000,000 par value Chicago-0' Hare International 
Airport Revenue Bonds on March 2, 1959 and February 28, 1961 aggregated $ll;l;, 290,851;, con- 
sisting of $ll;2,312,000 principal, $1,153,851; accrued interest and $825,000 premium. As 
much of the money as practicable has been continually invested in U. S. Treasury securities. 
The cash and securities are held by the trust department of The First National Bank of Chi- 
cago. Investment income received on the Interest During Construction Fund to December 31, 
1961 was credited to that Fund inasmuch as the Fund was invested in such manner that the 
cost of the investments, together with income on the investments, provided the exact amount 
required to pay interest coupons on outstanding revenue bonds to January 1, 1962 . Invest- 
ment income received on all other Funds to June 30, 1962 has been credited to the General 
Construction Fund under the terms of the bond ordinance.
