Evanston-Uinta County Airport and Fort Bridger Airport Public Notice

PUBLIC NOTICE 

 

FROM The Evanston-Uinta County Airport and the Fort Bridger Airport CONCERNING DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (“DBE”) GOALS

 

 

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Uinta County, as operator of the Evanston-Uinta County Airport and the Fort Bridger Airport, is soliciting public comment from any group or individual wishing to comment regarding Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) programs:

A preliminary DBE goal for Federal Fiscal Years (FFY) 2018/2019/2020 (49 CFR Part 26) has been proposed for both airports. The preliminary goal for the Evanston-Uinta County Airport is 6.50% and the preliminary goal for the Fort Bridger Airport is 4.53%. The preliminary DBE goals were established based on the relative availability of DBE’s in relationship to all available firms in the market area. The Evanston-Uinta County Airport and the Fort Bridger Airports plan to achieve their overall DBE goals via race neutral means (without regard to the firm’s DBE status). Copies of the Evanston-Uinta County Airport and the Fort Bridger Airport DBE goal and rationale are available by email request to karla@distelconsulting.com .

A public consultation to seek input from minority, women’s and general contractor groups, community organizations, and other officials or organizations which could be expected to have information concerning the availability of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged businesses, the effects of discrimination on opportunities for DBEs, and the Airports’ efforts to establish a level playing field for the participation of DBEs will be held prior to submitting the DBE goals to the FAA. The consultation will include a scheduled, direct, interactive exchange with as many interested stakeholders as possible focused on obtaining information relevant to the goal setting process. A series of public meetings was held on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at the Uinta County Courthouse.

Interested stakeholders are invited to attend an additional series of online-only meetings on Thursday, July 27, 2017. The Evanston meeting will be held at 3:00 p.m. and the Ft. Bridger meeting will be at 4:00 p.m. Please contact karla@distelconsulting.com for the online meeting link.

The Evanston-Uinta County Airport and the Fort Bridger Airports also hereby solicit public comment from any group or individual wishing to comment on the above DBE overall goal or rationale. Public comment will be accepted by the Airports through July 31, 2017 and should be submitted in writing to:
