Please note that comments submitted in response to this Notice are public record. Before including any detailed personal information, you should be aware that your comments as submitted, including your personal information, will be available for public review. Abstract of Proposed Collection Forms DS–1843 and DS–1622 collect medical history, lab tests, and physical examinations for all individuals applying for overseas positions, including their eligible family members. Forms DS–1843 and DS–1622 are designed to collect sufficient and current medical information on the individual in order for a medical provider to make a medical clearance determination for initial appointment to an overseas assignment. They are also used to determine whether the individual or eligible family member will have appropriate medical and/or educational resources at a diplomatic mission/host country abroad to maintain the health and safety of the individual or family member. The forms were updated to include questions regarding employment agency information for non-foreign service agencies. Once the collection instruments have been approved, the DS–1843/1622 can be used by respondents employed by both foreign and non-foreign service agencies, rendering the DS–6561 form redundant. As a result, the DS–6561 would be discontinued upon OMB approval of the revised DS–1843 and DS–1622 forms. Methodology The respondent will obtain the DS– 1843 and DS1622 forms from their human resources representative or download the forms from a Department website. The respondent will complete and submit the forms offline. Karl Field, Director of Medical Clearances.

On February 12, 2020, the Attorney for the Polk County Aviation Authority requested a release from the FAA to sell a tract of land, 16.06 acres. Buyer, Van Houweling Property LLC, will use the land for development. On May 4, 2020, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the release of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this notice. The following is a brief overview of the request: The Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) is proposing the release of airport property containing 16.06 acres, more or less. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale of the subject PO 00000 Frm 00151 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28135 property will result in the land at the Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances in order to dispose of the land. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for general aviation use. Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect the application, notice and other documents determined by the FAA to be related to the application in person at the Ankeny City Hall.
