Acting transportation director Kim Conroy says request for proposal for Briscoe Field was issued in accordance with instructions received from the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners in August.
The issuance this week of a request for proposal (RFP) for the potential privatization of county-owned Briscoe Field has been in the works since August according to Gwinnett County Department of Transportation (GDOT) acting director Kim Conroy. “The Board instructed staff to issue the RFP prior to the end of the year,” Conroy said referring to the August meeting in which District 3 Commissioner Mike Beaudreau, District 1 Commissioner Shirley Lasseter and District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard voted in favor of issuing the RFPs. During the August meeting, Beaudreau, who along with Lasseter and Howard voted in May to move the privatization process forward, described the lack of action by county staff over the summer to prepare an RFP as “…

Airport consultant study expected within the next 30 days.
Gwinnett County Transportation Director Brian Allen said the county has not yet determined whether to issue a new request for qualifications (RFQ) from firms interested in submitting proposals to privatize Briscoe Field. In 2010, three firms -- American Airports Corporation, Gwinnett Airport, LLC and Propeller Investments -- responded to the county's RFQ. The issuance of a request for proposal (RFP) would be the next step in the process of privatizing the airport. At his June 11 constituent meeting in Dacula, District 3 Commissioner Mike Beaudreau said his position is that the RFP process should be open to companies other than just those who replied to the county’s RFQ (Request for Qualifications). “We’ll see what offers we get and then we…

District 3 commissioner says he wants to see what offers come in and discuss "fact versus fiction."
Gwinnett County District 3 Commissioner Mike Beaudreau spent a good part of his June 11 constituent meeting defending his recent actions regarding the Lawrenceville airport. Few people were present for the 11 a.m. meeting at Harbins Park, but the majority of those in attendance expressed concern regarding the potential commercialization of Briscoe Field. Dacula resident Randy Taczynski said he believes Gwinnett County is one of the most irresponsible governments in the United States. Taczynski shared several concerns including recent land deal controversies, the Gwinnett Braves stadium and, in particular, the recent controversy regarding the commercialization of Briscoe Field. Taczynski, a homeowner in Apalachee Woods The Glens, said he …

District 3 commissioner Mike Beaudreau proposed substitute motion which does not limit commercialization.
Commercial service at Briscoe Field will remain an option for now. Last month, District 4 Commissioner John Heard proposed a resolution to remove commercial service from consideration at the Lawrenceville airport. The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners voted April 19 to table the resolution in order to hold a public hearing for the purpose of gathering citizen input on the matter. Hundreds attended the April 28 meeting at 12Stone Church in which opponents to commercial service far outnumbered those in support. On May 3, before the commission voted on Heard’s resolution, District 3 Commissioner Mike Beaudreau proposed a substitute motion to direct staff to issue a request for proposals (RFPs) for privatization which could include …
