Hangar renters face deadline
Board may allow new timeline for election
By Vanessa Miller
The Iowa City (IA) Press-Citizen
Iowa City Municipal Airport officials did not receive new leases and
insurance certificates from all the hanger tenants despite Tuesday being
the deadline for the required forms.
Airport Manager Ron O'Neil sent out the new leases earlier this summer
in response to Iowa City Manager Steve Atkins' critical review of the
airport's operations. Among Atkins' criticisms were the absence of lease
agreements for 37 of the rented hanger units and the lack of proof of
insurance coverage for all the airport's tenants.
The new standard leases are mandatory for all 64 hanger tenants. They
must include insurance documents that have premise liability insurance
with a $1 million per occurrence limit and list Iowa City and the
airport as being additionally insured. The tenant's insurance coverage
also must be primary, meaning that in the event of an accident inside
the hanger, the tenant's insurance would respond before the city's or
the airport's does.
O'Neil said that he set Oct. 1 as the deadline for return of the leases
and insurance certificates but only received about half of them by the
end of the workday Tuesday.
"I had two or three people call in wanting to know if they had to be in
today and some people saying they were in the mail," he said. "They will
probably trickle in over the next couple of days. I think most people
will be good about getting them in."
O'Neil said that he hasn't tallied the exact total of returned leases or
insurance certificates because some of them came in separately.
"I have a lot more insurance certificates than I have leases," he said.
"Some were sent directly to the city's risk manager, and I don't know
how many she has."
Erin Herting, Iowa City's assistant finance director and risk manager,
said that about 15 insurance certificates have been returned directly to
her. However, she did not receive any Tuesday.
O'Neil said that even though he set Oct. 1 as the deadline, he would
continue to accept leases for a short time after.
"Since I required them by the first of the month, we will give them a
set time they need to have them in by," O'Neil said, adding that if
tenants do not turn them in by that time, they will receive a written
"We will give them a notice that says, 'Turn them in or we will turn the
hanger over,'" he said.
O'Neil said he doesn't anticipate any problems and thinks the required
forms will all be submitted soon.
