    The City of Salem Common Council met in regular session on Monday, September 8, with all members present.
The minutes of previous meetings and all claims were approved unanimously.
    Citing a lack of specific details in a request by Salem Municipal Airport Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) President, Bill Barnett, for the Council to grant the BOAC the authority to begin negotiating a lease/purchase of the existing airport for special weekend events and the eventual sale of the facility, Salem Mayor David Bower said that the Council would have to take the request under advisement.
    In telephone interviews with members of the BOAC, it was learned that multiple meetings between Bower,
Common Council President, Wally Turkhorn, different BOAC members, and the respective attorneys for the BOAC
and the Common Council have taken place in preparation for Barnett’s request on Monday night.
    “I’m not quite sure what happened Monday night,”said Barnett in a Wednesday morning interview, “I thought
we had an understanding--an agreement in concept.  All we were requesting was the support of the Council to begin
the negotiation process.”
