Fate of Salem Airport still “up in the air” PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00
    Monday evening, July 13, the Salem Common Council and the Salem Municipal Airport Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) held a public hearing for the purpose of receiving input from citizens on the proposed sale of the Salem Municipal Airport.  
    Approximately half a dozen people choice to comment at the meeting.  Of those, only one spoke in favor of selling the old airport.  The others either spoke against the new airport or asked questions about the construction of the new airport—neither subject was the purpose of the Monday night meeting.  Earlier this year, a public hearing was held by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the BOAC to receive public comment on the construction of a new airport to the north of the current facility.
    Salem Mayor David Bower explained that the city and the BOAC are in negotiations with Lucas Oil for the purpose of coming to an agreement for use of the old airport facility.  As has been reported earlier, Lucas Oil plans to develop a drag racing facility on the old airport runway.  In addition, speculation about the connection between the Lucas Oil plans and expansion of the facilities serving the Salem Speedway seem to be increasing.
    Bower explained that any money received from the sale of the existing airport would, by law, have to be used in one of two ways.  First, the money could be used as the local match for the new airport facility or it would have to be returned to the FAA to repay the agency for money spent over the years maintaining and improving the current airport.

Commissioners say no additional funding for ambulance service PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00
    The Washington County Board of Commissioners met in regular session on Wednesday, July 15, with all members present.  The minutes of previous meetings, payroll, and all claims were approved unanimously.
    Jim Steggeman and other representative of the EMS Advisory Committee reported their recommendations to the Commissioners for streamlining the ambulance service in light of the current financial situation at the hospital.
    According to Steggeman, the current level of three full time ambulances and crews on duty at all time is not sustainable with the current budget.  Steggeman explained that it would take somewhere in the neighborhood of $400,000 per year to maintain the current level of service to county residents.  It should be noted that the county is required to provide emergency medical service to the community but the level of that service is not spelled out by statute.
    Steggeman asked the Commissioners to approve the closing of the Pekin ambulance station as a cost saving measure noting that the Pekin area would be serviced by ambulances and crews stationed in Salem.
    Commissioner Lana Sullivan and County Attorney Tom Scifres were quick to respond that it was not the Commissioners' place to approve the closing of the Pekin station.
    “We were not asked to approve the opening of the Pekin station so I don't think it appropriate for us to be asked to approve its closing.” commented Sullivan.
