Packed house greets Kalispell airport discussion

KALISPELL- Over 100 Flathead Valley residents packed the Kalispell City Council Chambers on Monday evening to voice their concerns again about the possible expansion of the city airport. So many people attended the hearing that monitors had to be set up in the lobby just to accommodate the overflow crowd and folks on both sides of the issue weighed in with comments. While the project was not up for a vote, an update on the master plan was given by Stelling Engineers. Those who spoke against the proposed expansion suggested Glacier International Airport was sufficient to handle additional traffic. But those who back the changes spoke about the boost to Kalispell's economy and improved safety to the city airport that the plan would bring.
