Hey people this just off the wire. Re the Club President......
How one can be charged like we were a Controlled Aerodrome is just plane silly......
Talked to Vicki today about the Aerodrome running costs
Seems “FMC key tasks ($36897) is airfield maintenance –mowing, spraying, painting tyre markers and also includes looking after parks in town!
“FMC Ready Response” is one offs like the new truck park – $9,908!?
Paying 15% of running costs was Vicki’s idea and was not taken up by the Council.
The $3/square meter is a based on New Plymouth users paying $4.50.
Hawera aerodrome has the same mowed area as Stratford (10ha) which is mowed commercially for $7877/year but not to the same standard as Stratford.
I have booked an appointment on Monday with the Mayor to explain this before a council meeting on Tuesday when hopefully things can be changed.
We think that $2/square meter is a fair lease rather than the $3 they are proposing.
