City Council debates

pros, cons
(Continued from Pae 3)
if the airport would reach a
saturation point within the next
ten years.
One faction of the citizens'
review team stated, "We rec-
ommend the Council reiterate
its stand not to expand the air-
port . . . and communicate to
the federal and state agencies
port as it now is. This should
its intent to maintain the air-
be our 'Master Plan'."
A differing opinion, but also
from the citizens' group, stated,
"The city must provide a plan
that will foster aviation growth
and be responsive to aviation's
developing needs."
THERE WAS also some de-
hate over how much money the
air ortcould contribute to its
operating costs. Chastain con-
tended, "The operating revenues
for 1974 exceeded the oper-sing
expenses by $41,000 . . . and by
1995 there should be a $66,000
profit margin."
But Chastain's profit margin
figures came under attack from
C'ries, "Theae so-called operaing
pr its are close to the break-
even point . . - these are very
bare breakeven numbers."
Chastain emphasized that the
airport needed to have a "5,000
foot-long runway for business-
type aircraft . . . and it has
been established that there is a
great deal of interest in the
airport from the business com-
munity."
THE AIRPORT presently only
has a 3,500 foot runway.
He also pointed out that "5,000
feet is the least amount required
by the FAA for precision instru-
ment approach."
However, Pittsfield Township
and some city residents have
opposed the 5,000 faot runway

ofair port
length because of possible high
levels of noise.
IN OTHER, Council matters,
Councilwoman Kathy Kozachen-
ko (HRP-Second Ward) was
certain at press time that she
would not be able to garner
even the necessary support to
get two of her resolutions onto
the floor.
One resolution called for
"Council to proclaim .its firm
support for Joanne Little in her
struggle for justice at the hands
of the sexist racist classist legal
system . . . and likewise sup-
port the continuing fight of Inez
Garcia and all other victims of
our brutal violent racist male
culture."
Juan Little was arrested in
Raleigh, N.C., and accused of
murdering her jailer, whs al-
legedly attempted to rape her.
Inez Garcia was convicted in
California of murder after she
fatally shot man she accused of
raping her.
COUNCILWOMAN Carol Jones
(D-Second Ward) defended her
refusal to give the motions sup-
port: "What is happening to
Joan Little pisses me off, hut I
just can't buy the wording of
those resolutions . . . her (Ko-
zachenko's) basic point is good
-. b ut she puts in all kinds of
subjective words and conclu-
sions in the motion."
The other HRP motion stated
that, "The United States govern-
ment is waging a campaign of
harassment, attack and murder
against members and support-
ers of the American Indian
Movement . . . We demand an
end to the American govern-
ment's siege of Pine Ridge
reservation, and that all U.S.
troops, including FBI agents
and national guardsmen, with-
draw immediately and unilat-
erally.
