Creswell airport updating leases

CRESWELL — Area pilots and aviation enthusiasts in recent weeks have been airing out concerns with the Creswell City Council about the City’s operation of the airport. The main concerns?  Updating lease agreements and ensuring they are equitable. 

Bjorn Dahlen, pilot and owner of Pacific Aviation, initiated complaints at the Nov. 14 council meeting in an effort to have leases corrected. The City conducted an investigation with Jim Piper, finance manager and Shelley Humble, airport manager who prepared a memo addressing Dahlen’s concerns. They presented their findings at the Nov. 28 work session.  . . .
