Forestburg Municipal Airport

Council has been reviewing options for the future of our municipal airport.  A study has been completed and sets out the required updates and anticipated costs for the site.  A copy of the study is available here or can be picked up at the Village Office.

The current operating budget for the airport is $15,710 which provides for insurance, utilities, licensing, staffing and a relatively small amount for repairs and maintenance ($5,500).  To put this into context, every $5,000 in expenses causes an approximate 1% increase in property taxes rates.

Council is seeking input from our residents as to the future of the airport:

  • What would you like to see done with the airport?

  • Are you will to continue funding the airport?

  • If the airport is closed, what could the land be used for?

Council will be revisiting this issue during the October 19, 2016 Council Meeting.  Comments and/or concerns can be provided to the Administration Office prior to the meeting and can be brought forward during the meeting.
