The Waterloo City Council last(Mon) night unanimously approved the purchase of two pieces of equipment that will improve…and speed-up…the process of repairing the city’s pothole-filled streets.
On the Waterloo Regional Airport front, council members gave third-and-final reading to a site plan, a 40-year land lease, and property tax incentives for a new hangar southwest of the terminal. The 12,800 square foot building will hold private planes owned by local companies “A-Line EDS and POS,” and the project faced opposition from next-door neighbors Livingston- and Kingfisher Aviation because of the distance from their hangars. Airport Manager Keith Kaspari had some of what he called “colorful,” communication with the companies, but was adamant that approving the project was the right thing to do.
For the record, Kaspari says the distance between the two hangars will be 180 feet, 13 feet more than required by the FAA.
