The Houston City Council has unanimously adopted a policy governing the rental of hangars at Houston Memorial Airport. The vote came last Tuesday night during a closed session.
The matter has stirred controversy among hangar users at the airport on the western edge of Houston. An earlier decided ordinance was revoked, but discussion continued to linger on the direction desired by the six-member council.
The new policy goes into effect upon expiration of any hangar agreements already in place. The council and its airport committee will oversee the rent charges based on the condition of the hangar and square footage.
The council also set the monthly fee for new hangars at the airport at $165.
