Lantana Airport Update
The news at the emergency TAC/CAC meeting last night was not good. The FAA ruled in favor of Errol Foreman's complaint that the County was illegally prohibiting jets from using LNA. This is a final ruling by the FAA and there are no more steps in the FAA process. Although the County could appeal the FAA ruling to the circuit court in Washington DC, the County Attorney is recommending against doing so because of the reported slim chance of success. On this coming Tuesday, February 9th, the Board of County Commissioners will consider approval of a Department of Airports Corrective Action Plan to come into compliance with the FAA ruling by lifting the jet ban -- please see attached document. If the County Commission approves it, the game is over and LAN is open to jets. Please consider attending the Commission meeting on Tuesday to express your opposition to Item #6D-1 / the County's approval of the CAP.
Many thanks to your participation!
