South Lake Tahoe Tower Again

Will the Lake Tahoe Airport continue to fly with a control tower?

That’s one of the critical questions to be posed to the South Lake Tahoe City Council at an upcoming meeting. The city’s cost-sharing portion of its agreement with the FAA may almost double from the $120,000 South Lake Tahoe pays a contractor to watch air traffic between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. The hours were cut down to reduce costs, but the FAA has insisted the measure fails to go far enough.

Seem like this question continues to come up every time the tower contract comes up for renewal.
