WOODBINE — Continued support.
That is what Curtis Lee, a member of the Woodbine Municipal Airport Commission, wants from the Woodbine City Council members.
At the Council meeting in late May at the regular meeting, Lee spoke with them, providing an update and asking them to continue supporting keeping the airport open.
Throughout the last several months, Lee said the Commission has been trying to come up with ways to decrease the cost of running the airport while continuing to keep it open.
In the past, Council members have said they want to keep the airport open (and they said it again at this meeting), but want to find ways to make it less expensive to the City to operate.
Lee said the Commission is working on ways to do that.
First, they have applied for a grant to install piloted-controlled lighting. This would allow the lights to be turned on and off by keying the microphone button with the radio tuned to a particular frequency. Once activated, the lights remain illuminated for 15 minutes.
