FULLERTON – The Fullerton Municipal Airport — Orange County’s last general-aviation airfield — is $3.9 million in arrears for city franchise payments. Founded in 1927, the city-owned airport started paying a franchise fee in 1982 after officials determined local government was financing many airport services, including police, fire, accounting, employee recruitments and benefits and the ordering of goods.
