HalfFan 1 year, 4 months ago on Aviation Commission recommends tower funding

Adams said, "All this talk has managed to really confuse me. But I think to invoke the fear of losing UPS is not fair until we have more information. I need to be clear about this before I vote."
Is the tower even staffed when the UPS flights arrive? Someone said its only staffed about 8 hours a day now and the early and late ASA Delta flights do not use the tower. Is that correct?

How many flights use the airport each year. Increase the landing or use fees to cover the amount. Most citizens get no benefit and their tax money should not be used. Of course the avation commission is for funding the tower but let them find the money another way besides holding out their hands only to the taxpayer.

Sure you could perhaps save a little money with an independent fire service, especially if it is a down graded one that causes everyones insurance rates to go up.

The politicans should have the same retirement and health care plans that the public has. Also there should be no laws that do not apply to politicans. Business owners and executives should be taxed at 50 percent of their income that is five times greater than the average that is paid to company emplyees.

Now that the WD is closing maybe Harveys will survive, The only good thing from Wallmart opening is that there gas station competition has loweredf gas at a few stations in the area. Those that complain about gas price being lower in east Albany dont seem to remember that untill the Wallmart opened the gas was always higher on the east side. Historically gas in Albany has been about five cents less than national average. What has happened to change that.

The Wallmart in East Albany does not have anywhere near the food selection that the one near the mall has. The prices at WD are extremely high unless you have their discount card. Because of that I avoided shopping at WD. They were in trouble before Wallmart arrived. Wallmart does hurt other business. The grocery stores at strip malls frequently have agreements with other stores in strip mall not to sell same products.

I dont think that it costs $30,000 to use 30,000 gallons of water. I would guess closer to $300. The article did not report what the cost of the dechlorination of the water is. Also the RiverQuarium has been trying to get the WG&L to approve the well for years.

WOW! Afer 20 plus years of complaints lets hope they do a better job than just replacing a few worn out wooden boards. The repair of the one track at the double crossing at the other end of Mock Rd was actually a good job. They still need to repair the other track at the double crossing.
