Airport Board approves lease agreement



  • Approved a motion to extend the bidding for the replacement of all airport radios to meet new FAA guidelines to reduce bandwidth frequencies at airports by Jan. The bidding was extended to Nov. 27, adding two weeks. The commissioners also approved a motion to allow Collins to accept the winning bid, contingent that it did not go over $10,000, because the radios have to be replaced by the first of the year.
  • Approved a request from the city of Mt. Vernon to remove existing sidewalk near the Summersville Grade School and replace it with new sidewalks. Collins said the airport owns part of the property undergoing the construction.
