Your Board is working with the City on the latest issue - site security. The City may start opening the gate at 8AM (not 7AM) and locking at 4 or 5PM until a better solution is found - perhaps keys or combinations for those early and late fliers. If you are locked out or locked in notify an ARCC officer or the city .
Contracts to re-surface the runway and lay concrete in the pit area have been signed. Waiting for Santa Fe to transfer the CIP money the board helped obtain in 2019-2020.
