County appoints new Airport Advisory Committee

Home Government County appoints new Airport Advisory Committee

The Colusa County Board of Supervisors on Sept. 1 appointed seven members to the newly restructured Airport Advisory Committee.

The previous committee of about 15 members was officially dissolved, and a new committee was formed to adhere to bylaws the county created on Aug. 4 that requires at least four of the seven members to have aviation experience, said County Counsel Marcos Kroph.

The county received 10 applications to fill the seven-member panel. The seven will serve staggered terms, which were assigned by draw.

“I really appreciate the candidates coming in and actually talking to us,” said Board of Supervisors Chair, Denise Carter. “It was terrific.”

Supervisor John Loudon, also a member of the interviewing committee, said it was a new experience for him to help select the members, and that he was pleased to announce the “Magnificent Seven.”

The new committee is composed of Mike West, Gene Muir, Toby Reading, Peter Lindquist, Sherman MacPherson, Clinton Jewett, and Bill Abel.

All seven members are local pilots, and most were members of the former committee.

The Colusa County Airport was built in its current location in 1960, with an initial informal committee formed to advise the Board of Supervisors as to its operation. The committee consisted largely of volunteers who donated time and money to improve the facility.

The new Airport Advisory Committee will continue to serve as the Airport Land Use Commission, as it has done since the 1980s, and will be charged with reviewing all projects proposed to be built in or around the airport.

County officials said the restructure to a more formal committee was necessary to allow for better compliance with the changing regulatory environment, and to comply with the California Public Utility code.

The new committee met for the first time on Monday. They selected Mike West to serve as the group’s first chairman and Peter Lindquist to serve as vice-chairman.

The committee will meet every other month on the second Monday, officials said.
