Mr. Murrell reported that he is working to get internet service and cable to the area. Mr. Joe Love stated that the airport did have meetings with Cox a few years ago but the cost proposed by Cox was cost prohibitive. The board told Mr. Murrell that they would help him in any way they could to get Cox out here.
Mr. Brian Miller was also pleased with the new directional signs to Route 17 and I64 that the city installed at the end of Airport Drive. He appreciated the city’s quick response to our request for these signs.

Mr. Brian Miller suggested we think of things that could include other than aviation events like Wings and Wheels that would bring cars out for viewing as well as the airplanes. We need to advertise that we have a friendly airport here and we welcome everyone. The board members discussed what we as an authority can do to improve our community’s perception of the airport. Mr. John Beaulieu suggested having a customer forum or community forum where the customers or the public come to learn about the airport.
