Idaho airport: No projects anticipated after amendment passage
BOISE, Idaho: On November 2, 2010, Idaho residents voted on a measure that would allow airports in the state to take on debt for endeavors that would improve facilities and equipment. The debt would be have to be paid off using airport revenues instead of using taxpayer money. Even though the measure, also known as HJR 5, was approved by voters, Twin Falls airport officials don't see any projects in the foreseeable future.
According to Twin Falls County Commission Chairman George Urie about the amendment, “It’s a good tool, but I don’t see anything in the immediate future to use it on here. It’s just another tool in case there is something they are looking at.” Urie also serves as the county liaison on the airport advisory board.
