Chairman Koppe reported <br /> that they had made an extensive study and that it was not easy to arrive at just <br /> what was the best thing to do. He stated that previously Mr. Harrell had indicated <br /> to the Mayor that he would be agreeable to a 5% charge on the gross receipts, but <br /> that when the committee talked to him l1e only wanted to pay the City $125.00 per <br /> month and wanted to extend the contract to April 1, 1943. Mr. Koppe reported that <br /> Mr. Harrell had made repiars to the shop which had cost in the neighborhood of <br /> $1800.00, put in a cement floor that had cost another $300.00 and was going to buil <br /> a n~w hanger which would cost about $2600.00. Mr. Koppe said it was the committee' <br /> recommendation that Mr. Harrell should pay the city 5% on the gross revenue of ' <br /> the field. Mayor Large stated that Mr. Harrell did have, as many as.fifty students <br />I a t one time but that a: fair average would be from thirty to forty. ~ \Thirty students <br /> at $325.00 each and three classes would amount to $29,250.00 gross ~evenue for a <br /> year.

Mr. Koppe ~xplained ,that the city was furnishing the <br /> Airport and it had cost considerable money as the yearly upkeep, consltsting of <br /> mowing the field, keeping up the runways and other expense, amounted to quite a <br /> sum. ,Councilman Brownson said a 5% charge generally might be all right, but <br /> questioned whether there should be a 5% charge on the sale of gasoline. After some <br /> distlussion, a motion was made by Pennington and seconded by Bond that the Committee <br /> report be adopted and the City Attorney be instructed to draw up a contract that <br /> Mr. Harrell pay the city 5% on the gross revenue of the field and that the Mayor <br /> and Recorder be authorized to enter into such a cont~act with Mr. Harrell.
