TRI-COUNTY AREA BOARDS CONSIDERING JOINING AIRPORT AUTHORITY
Tuesday, January 21, 2020
ST. CLOUD -- Efforts are ramping up in 2020 to create a Regional Airport Authority to oversee and operate the St. Cloud Regional Airport.
A task force has been charged with pitching the proposal to the Tri-County boards of commissioners. Task force member Brian Myres says each county is being asked to opt-in and would then have two representatives appointed to the board. He says it's important to note, the airport authority board won't be made up of government officials. Myres points to other Regional Airport Authority agencies like in Duluth where business and aviation professionals sit on the board and steer its growth.
