AVIATION COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Phil Brown, Acting Director of Aviation Department, testified on behalf of this ordinance. This ordinance would authorize a contract that would temporarily hold in abeyance the rent payment and management and operating fees for three (3) months for Southport Aviation. This company has alleged that they have been damaged by the process that the city has been going through with Richards Gebaur Airport. Shortly after the councils action to call the election and to proceed with the master plan of the airport Southport spoke with the Aviation Department asking them to allow Southport to close its business at that time or to assist in their operating cost because they have been loosing money. Southport currently has thirty-eight (38) aircraft based at the airport. If this company was to close its business at the airport those aircraft would have to be moved out quickly and all operations would have to shut down. Staff of the Aviation Department has reviewed the financial report of this company and concluded the Aviation Department would pay their operating cost for three (3) months in the amount of 16,000.00 per month. This would eliminate the deficit that this company has.
