Public Input Sought for New Airport Terminal Name


The City Council is now accepting suggestions from the community on what to name the airport’s new terminal. At its July 23 meeting, the council received two name requests — Jack Rickard, a former mayor and judge, and Dwight Murphy, who served on the original committee that selected the airport site — but voted to delay any action. The City Council will resume its discussion on the matter October 30, and residents who wish to recommend a name should write a letter or send an email to the Airport Director by 5 p.m. on October 11.
