Board seeks airport authority applicants

Carson City’s Board of Supervisors seeks applicants to fill three of the seven positions on the Carson City Airport Authority.

The authority, which oversees matters pertaining to the capital city’s airport, meets the third Wednesday of every month at the Community Center. Authority members serve 10 to 16 hours a month in the volunteer role, according to a news release. Terms are for four years and will expire Oct. 1, 2017.

Applications for the three slots, which are in different categories, will be accepted until Aug. 30. Interviews are tentatively planned at the city governing board meeting Thursday, Sept. 5.

Slots available are for a fixed-base operator at the Carson City Airport, for a manufacturer, and for a citizen at large from Carson City who is neither a fixed-base operator nor a manufacturer.

The manufacturer must be from within a 3-mile radius of the airport, but cannot be a fixed-base operator there. If no eligible manufacturer representative applies, the city governing board might appoint another citizen member at large.

Applications may be obtained from and returned to the Carson City Executive Offices at City Hall, 201 N. Carson St., Unit 2. The release from city government noted that all applications submitted will be considered public information.
