The Carson City Board of Supervisors got a fairly comprehensive view Thursday of what the future holds for the Carson City Airport. Discussions with several applicants who wanted to join the Airport Board of Directors focused on how to move the airport forward in a way that serves the community while not over-doing it. Some would say the airport is getting more noisy by the year.
Several candidates for the vacancies concentrated on raising the quality of services that already exist at the airport while trying to make the airport a better neighbor to all of Carson City. And there were discussions about how the airport could constructively improve the airport’s contribution to the Carson City economy. The newly appointed members of the Airport Board of Directors acknowledged, along with some incumbent members, that they want to perfect what services there are and to work better together toward common goals. In short, keep the airport growing and better functioning based on the total Airport Board consensus during regular meetings rather than “off the record” discussions outside of Airport Authority meetings. In short, they want all issues to be considered by the airport manager FIRST who then would present desirable options to the total Airport Board for discussion and decisions. To be continued, no doubt.
Getting closer to the ground, the Board of Supervisors discussed how and where to place a monument to the history of the V&T Railroad. Several locations just off the downtown and close to Mills Park were discussed including how and where to position the monument displaying a major legacy of Carson City’s history. To be continued.
