Buildings and Grounds Committee Minutes
Meeting Snippet: Mr. Zilka said they are occasionally getting jets from Switzerland. He said he is proposing bringing this Committee information on what the cost would be to put another 500 ft. of runway and what the County would capture. He mentioned with the addition of 500 ft., they would sell another 2,000 gallons of fuel. We should work collectively as an operator and County and look for other opportunities for funding to turn this into a profit center rather than a liability, he said. We are a functioning, operating entity, and it wouldn’t take a lot to make this a pretty good profit center for the County, he said. He stated they are looking forward to the tree removal issue. We are still fighting with the person with the tree on Runway 5, he added.
