Stockton Airport – City/County Fighting Over Airport Revenue

Deal on airport reached

The Stockton (CA) Record STOCKTON – For more than a year, Stockton and San Joaquin County fought over the city’s demands to absorb Stockton Metropolitan Airport and a share of its tax revenues in exchange for sewer and water services to a county-planned business park. The dispute, which peaked with a tense joint meeting between the county Board of Supervisors and the Stockton City Council in February 2006, was finally resolved this week when the two sides reached a compromise: The city will provide the development-friendly services without requiring annexation, and the county will back off its stance that decades-old agreements prohibit the city from absorbing the airport property, officials said.
