JOINT PUBLIC HEARING
Hagerstown Regional Airport (HGR) Manager Carolyn Motz and staff brought these proposed fees and charges to Public Hearing. The County Commissioners and the Hagerstown Regional Airport Advisory Commission conducted a public hearing to permit any interested person to appear and testify concerning the proposed increase in current charges, rentals, and fees at the Hagerstown Regional Airport. The new schedule of rates and charges, if adopted, shall become effective July 1, 2007. Rents for hangars would see increases of from $5 to $16 per month based on size. Hangar Offices and Combination Office-Hangar monthly rental increases would be seen at a range of $4 to $52 depending on size. There would be no change in tie-down or ramp fees. Landing fees for transient aircraft would increase in a range from $1 to $4 per landing, depending on aircraft size. No one appeared either in favor of or in opposition to the plan, and the rates were approved for adoption pursuant to the budget hearing in May.
