The group is doing better. A few more replacements and they will do even better. There are a few old cranks that go around stabbing them in the booty all of the time, but the cranks will eventually go away also. For the most part the Airport Commission is charged to run the airport and to make it pay for itself. They are not allowed to take money from the city coffers. Its nice that a few good people are willing to put up with all of the BS that some give them. I hear the FAA thinks we have a couple of badly loose crews up here that have a typewriter. These folks probably have forgotten their objective. Maybe thery will grow up before they get too old.

There is NO pay for serving on airport commisson, and NO they do not get insurance free or at all, its strickly folks who are willing to serve. Hopefully folks that wish to see this area grow and willing to put in the extra hours, but recently it seems this group have been on a destructive course. several yrs ago, they had a group that worked to get new industry here, such as Custom pak and afew more, they worked to build the new termnail building, which was all for the good of the communtiy! What has happened in the last 4-5 yrs is a mystery to most, the commissioners do not seem to be working for the community, I think they really thought this airport was going to become a regional "working" airport and have recently found out there is no way that is going to happen. I think they let the "dream" get in the way of down to earth thinking and it has torn this community apart!
As for getting on the airport commission, the mayor elects new ones when the term on a commissioner has expired.( if a person wishes to serve) Cant remember how many yrs they are elected to serve, maybe 5 ??? but they can be relected several times, if the mayor so wishes. Or he/she can ask another to serve when a current commissioner time is up.

So no pay and nothing free, just putting in time to make sure the airport is run properly and hopefully to the benefit of commumnity.
I guees some business men feel some sort of prestige by serving on the commission.

NO pay or any benefits for airport commissioners, just type in airport commissioners on google and read all about their job in running small airports thru out the state.

you have been told wrong!!! research it , you will find they recieve nothing for serving as commissioner, now the airport manager gets paid and others who work at the airport, but the commissoners do not!! They can pay to be on the city insurance program, but again they recieve NO salary for sitting on APC!!

You people are all stupid. The airport commission does not recieve any money at all. The only thing they get is a whole bunch of beef from people who have no idea what they are talking about. How about instead to bitching on topixs you take your sweet self up the the mayors office and ask how to become a memeber and what the benefits are. As for the vehicles they drive its a thing called financing, and not every person on the commission has new vehicles. They have meetings that takes time from their lives, to better our community. FOR FREE! I doubt any of you with a problem would want to give up your time for no financail gain.

calm down and reread my post.. I said it use to be they worked to make the commumity better, but these last few yrs, I dont know what happened to their judgement. it went way off base and instead of helping to improve the community, they cause a split in the community and really for NO good reason. I do agree that several need to be replaced and who knows in time they just might be! When their time is up then the mayor can replace them with someone else, but you must realize that there are not many folks around here who would want to give up their free time to serve, and trust me, you do spend alot of time at night meetings. time away from your families so lets give those credit that serve for at least doing that for NOTHING! no pay, no benefits at all. and many have served for yrs, probably too many yrs, and they need to get off, but then again, finding someone that is willing to give that much of themselves for nothing in return is very hard to do around here.

I don't think they build an airplane with 4 wheel drive. If you are going to learn to drive an airplane, please go to Jonesboro or further so you don't drive into my house. Goof Ball you pilot an airplane, you don't drive it.

Those crooks are playing the whole town off for chumps. They aren't pursuing the upgrades that were "necessary" to get rid of the golf course, so were left with the same airport and no golf course.
