Council to consider appraisal of airport

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council is considering hiring an outside firm to conduct an appraisal of Majors Field Municipal Airport.

The Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on approving a professional services agreement with Airport & Aviation Appraisals Incorporated, for an appraisal of the airport with a respect of the lease of the airport.

The vote is included under Tuesday’s regular session agenda, with begins at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street.

Details as to the costs involved under the agreement, or who is the subject of the airport lease, were not included as part of the information packet which was presented to the Council and made public on the city’s web site. As part of the contract, both sides will also sign a confidentiality agreement.

The Council voted in February to approve a non-disclosure agreement with L-3 Communi-cations Integrated Systems, prior to negotiations starting on a new lease agreement for the defense contractor at Majors Field.

In January, Council voted to grant a professional services agreement with Taylor Olson Adkins Sralla Elam for legal matters with respect to the airport lease.

The airport covers approximately 1,500 acres. L-3 leases much of the airport property from the City of Greenville, with the original lease agreement reached in 1977. The lease agreement is up for consideration again in 2017.
