Mayor sacks Air Board PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 22 April 2009 00:00
    The Washington County Edition received a copy of a letter dated April 14, 2009 and signed by Salem Mayor David Bower.  In the letter, the mayor cites Indiana Code and reasons for removing members of the Salem Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) as of the date of the letter.
    The specified reasons for the mayor's actions are as follows:
1.As a member of the Air Board, you have participated in decisions to incur project expenses for the new Airport Layout Plan prior to the award of any FAA grant therefor.  Consequently, the City of Salem, Indiana has been threatened with litigation in writing because the expenditures have not been paid.
2.As a member of the Air Board, you have participated in decisions to continue to incur project expenses for the new Airport layout Plan without having finalized the terms of a proposed lease or sale with Owen Thompson, Thompson Promotions, Inc., or any other entity to which Owen Thompson is a majority owner, which is intent to be the funding vehicle for the local match of the development of the new airport.
3.As a member of the Air Board, you have not acted to protect the City's financial interests in the collection of hangar rent from the fixed based operator which had remained delinquent for a period of at least 12 month.
4.This is an apparent lack of mutual trust and confidence between the Board of Aviation Commissioners and the elected officials of the City of Salem, Indiana.
