Airport plans: Friedman Memorial (KSUN), Hailey, Idaho

HAILEY, IDAHO (KMVT-TV) The Hailey City Council has wrapped up half a dozen meetings to take comments about what to do regarding the next step for Friedman Memorial Airport. The open house discussions have allowed local residents to ask questions and give their input, as well.

Earlier this year the FAA suspended the environmental impact statement process.

What that means is that "all" of the options can be re–evaluated and get more community input.

Airport manager Rick Baird says "From my perspective as the airport manager, I don't care if we fix it at the existing site, or whether you fix it at a replacement airport site, you just have to fix it."

The city council will meet again at 5:30 next Monday night at city hall.

Then the Friedman Memorial Airport authority will meet next Tuesday evening in the Sun Valley inn's continental room beginning at 5:30. The city of Hailey and Blaine County will also participate in the meeting.
