Oceanside Airport

A deadlock by Oceanside, Calif. City Council means the city will lose $150,000 in FAA funding to build a perimeter fence. “The party’s over on that one,” Alan Cruise, president of the Oceanside Airport Association told the North County Times. Accepting the FAA money would require a renewed commitment to keep the airport — which has just erected new hangars — open for years to come. The grant was lost because council tied 2-2 in the vote on whether to accept funds. Mayor Jim Wood, who would have broken the tie, was unable to attend the Wednesday meeting. Deadline for acceptance was Sunday and no further meetings were planned.
