March/April 2020 Newsletter
FROM THE MANAGER
The last month has been challenging to say the least. I hope this letter finds all of you safe and healthy. As information and directives from local, state, and federal agencies comes in daily, we have been working to balance daily business operations with customer and personnel safety. We erred on the side of caution by temporarily reducing our business hours until we could implement safety protocols to protect our customers and employees. We believe we have taken the necessary precautions and have returned to normal operating hours of 7:00am to 7:00pm Monday through Friday, and 8:00am to 6:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
I want to thank all of you for patience and understanding during these uncertain times. All normal services are available to customers however, we will no longer have cookies, popcorn and mints available in the FBO. The crew car is also available for use with certain precautions, namely increased sanitation efforts.
As you are aware, the city has been attempting to finish installing taxiway lighting for a few weeks now. The weather continues to be a factor and has delayed the project. Once complete, it will be a very nice improvement. We will continue to inform you of closures as we receive the information from the city.
Please continue to monitor our emails and newsletters as new orders and requirements are being put in place daily. We will strive to keep you updated as best we can.
Please stay safe and healthy!
