ACTION LINE: South Gate Visitor Center fixes schedule to meet customer needs

August 27, 2015

Q: Can anything be done about the sporadic arrival of the personnel opening the visitor control building at the South Gate?  In recent weeks, I’ve encountered on at least two occasions the visitor control center being opened late. There are contractors being delayed from starting their work and, in my case, a potential new hire was late for his appointment.

ACTION LINE: Access to Gate 31 pedestrian gate

August 13, 2015

Q: Can you find out why I’m no longer able to use Gate 31 to access my office? I work for the 309th Commodities Maintenance Group in Building 510 and I have line badge for this area. For the past three years, I’ve used this gate; however, recently the organization that controls gate access deleted everyone from their system. When I contacted them to ask why I no longer had gate access, it was explained that there were more than 1,000 individuals in their system and no way for them to know who still had a legitimate requirement to use the gate.

ACTION LINE: Safe transportation of private firearms

July 30, 2015

Q: I have a question in regard to Hill AFB instruction 31-206, specifically, paragraph 5.1: I have a concealed carry permit issued by the state of Utah and I live in base housing. I also ride a three-wheeled motorcycle. Paragraph 5.1 prohibits me from transporting my weapon in my motorcycle from my home while going on or off base. My question then is, how do I legally transport my weapon when going on or off base? Thank you for your attention to this matter.
