Chico City Council Rejects Airport Management Proposal

“On the urging of 13 speakers, the Chico City Council unanimously rejected a proposal from Washington D.C.-based AvPORTS to manage the Chico Municipal Airport… despite a modified proposal for a smaller cost, shorter time span and less risk, which were among the objections cited when the Airport Commission recommended rejecting the proposal in October.”

Chico airport panel nixes management offer

Chico >> After almost three hours of discussion, the Chico Airport Commission Tuesday night said it would not recommend the City Council agree to a long-term management proposal presented by consultant AvPORTS.

Commissioners said they had “concerns” with the proposal’s costs, as well as what the agreement would mean to the community in service and to the city in costs.

CalPilots Editor’s Note – CalPilot’s Paul Osterman states – “representatives of the CalPilots Chapter North Valley Aviation Association were one of many providing input to the commission”.
