Airport Commission appoints new Chairperson

Desiree Gearing-Lancaster was unanimously elected chair of the Airport Commission last week.

Also receiving unanimous approval were Tom Reid, vice-chairperson, and Joel Busse, secretary.

Dale Klevgard was appointed airport manager, and Brad Chown was appointed assistant airport manager.  Also during the meeting, Klevgard provided an update on the lighting project, which replaced the runway lights with LEDs, and also installed a new beacon and wind cone.  The project was funded by the Federal Transit Administration, Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Aeronautics and local funds.  A new snow blower is also needed for the airport to help protect the new LED lights. One option is to replace the current end loader the airport has or another option is to place a snow blower attachment to the current end loader.
