Preliminary budget

| Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2007

An apparently balanced preliminary budget for Joseph A. Hardy/Connellsville Airport was circulated to Fayette County Airport Authority members Tuesday but not released to the public.

The board plans to vote on the 2008 spending plan in November. Neither expenses nor revenues were discussed during yesterday's monthly meeting.

Airport Manager Sam Cortis said the budget "is in the black for the first time since anyone can remember." He said new tenants and increased revenue from hangar rentals contributed.

Solicitor Mark A. Rowan and member Mark Wasler, who conducted the meeting in the absence of board President Jesse Wallace, advised Cortis not to release the budget.

Public panels release preliminary budgets for review as a common practice.
