OCEANSIDE – City officials are one step closer to contracting with a private operator to run Oceanside Municipal Airport, possibly for the next half century. In a 4-1 vote Wednesday night, the City Council decided to negotiate with Airport Property Ventures of Los Angeles, a company formed a year ago by a partnership that includes two former executive directors of the agency that runs Los Angeles International Airport. The company was one of two bidders that made presentations Wednesday.
