City Council passes
airport master plan
(Continued from Page 1)
Councilman Robert Henry (R-Third Ward) argued that the
section of the resolution should not mean "the airport should hold
off studies on newer items."
"THIS LIMITS improvements which would increase the value
(of the airport) just because it wouldn't meet the financial feasi-
bility requirement," he added.
Councilman Ronald Trowbridge (R-Fourth Ward) suggested
that some improvements could possibly be made before the re-
payment of loans if "the airport can demonstrate it would bring
in money."
Installation of additional safety equipment at the airport also
drew fire from Council. Trowbridge, a member of a committee
which reviewed the findings of the consulting firm, said, "In ap-
proving additional safety devices we would be increasing the risks
of accidents. We're keeping a system which is not as good to
prevent an increase in accidents."
Trowbridge maintained that additional safety equipment
would increase airport traffic, therefore increasing the risk of
accidents caused by "human error".
OTHER COUNCIL members also opposed a portion of the
master plan which calls for replacing a runway which now runs
t north and south to an east-wind crosswind runway which would
provide greater safety for small aircraft. The runway relocation
would increase airport traffic as well as re-route planes} over a
residential district.
In other business last night, Council defeated a resolution to
oppose the development of the B-1 bomber.
Mayor Pro-Tem Louis Belcher (R-Fifth Ward) called the pro-
posal useless because of President Carter's recent announcement
of the purchase of five of the aircraft.
Mayor Albert Wheeler's resolution to support state reim-
bursement to cities for public services provided to tax-exempt
institutions, such as the University, was approved unanimously.
