The board members overseeing San Bernardino International Airport will consider at their next meeting paying subcontractors owed about $4 million for work done on the airport’s main passenger terminal, a three-story U.S. Customs building and a fix made to a bay inside one of the hangars to fit Boeing’s 747-8 freighter while it was undergoing tests there.

A.J. Wilson, the new interim executive director of the Inland Valley Development Agency and separate San Bernardino International Airport Authority, said that subcontractors for each of the projects have been waiting to be paid.

Scot Spencer, the airport’s developer who receives a percentage of funds based on every construction contract awarded, is supposed to submit billing records and documentation as to the exact amount each subcontract is owed. Wilson said he couldn’t explain why Spencer hadn’t submitted the documentation this time.

“We’ve asked him to be timely,” Wilson said.

The Inland Valley Development Agency has overseen the redevelopment of the entire Norton Air Force Base area, including funding construction and operation costs for the airport, while the San Bernardino International Airport Authority has overseen work pertaining to just airport property. Both boards are made up of elected officials from the county’s east valley.
