JOINT PUBLIC HEARING: MODIFICATION OF CHARGES, RENTALS, AND FEES AT THE HAGERSTOWN REGIONAL AIRPORT
Hagerstown Regional Airport Manager Carolyn Motz brought this proposal for increases in rents, fees and rates to the Board. The Board of County Commissioners of Washington County, Maryland and the Hagerstown Regional Airport Advisory Commission conducted this 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. T-Hangar rentals would increase an average of 4.5%, and would be seen from $6 to $61 per month, based of hangar size and type. Tie Downs, Ramp Fees and Landing Fees would be unchanged. The new schedule of rates and charges, if adopted, would become effective July 1, 2008. No one appeared to testify in favor of or against the proposed rate structure. The measure was approved by unanimous vote.
