Correspondence between the City and the FAA

Tuesday, September 27, 2016


We were just notified yesterday that the FAA intends to visit us soon (see attached). In response to the FAA’s proposed visit, Mayor Vazquez made the following statement:

“This is an overreach by the FAA. Our priority is putting the community first and exercising our rights as owner and operator of the airport. Now the FAA is clearly on a fishing expedition to protect Washington special interests who fear losing corporate profits. Despite the FAA’s efforts, we will not falter on our commitment to safeguard our community from the negative impacts of the airport until the courts make a final determination.”
