Although not set in stone, it
appears the Town will allow the NYSP to set up a "weigh station" on
airport property. As long as approval is given by the FAA, the
project will begin in the Spring. The land that will be

There has been talk of a fuel
farm being placed at the Airport. I have spoken with our
engineers and the amount of money needed, along with other projects
the FAA deems more urgent, will make it very hard to get funding for
