TEXAS: Officials eye leases at Nueces County airport

Nueces County commissioners aren't high on the low prices for hangar space at the county airport.

A one-year lease for a maintenance hangar is $65 a month, they discovered Wednesday when asked to approve a lease as part of their consent agenda, a list of mostly routine housekeeping items usually voted on all at once.

Commissioners Joe McComb and Mike Pusley said the price seems too low.

County officials have been trying to make the airport a revenue generator after it struggled from 2005 to 2010, spending $166,000 more than it brought in. A recent uptick in fuel sales helped stem that trend.
