City Council Turns Kalispell Airport Decison Over to Voters
Unable to reach a decision on whether or not to upgrade the Kalispell City Airport, the Kalispell City council has decided to place the issue on the November ballot. The public has shown a lot of involvement in the preceding thus far, likely because the northward flight path to the airport leads directly over the city. In February, a plane was forced to try to land on a city street and ended up crashing into a home causing nearly $50,000 in damages. That crash, will likely weigh heavily on voters minds as they vote on what to do with the airport. Kalispell’s interim city manager and city attorney, Charles Harball went into all of the details with KGVO News. You can hear that interview in the audio box below.
