At Tuesday’s meeting of the Morris City Council, a resolution was approved to designate a St. Paul firm as the airport engineer for the Morris Airport. City Manager Blaine Hill described the council’s move as “a paperwork thing” on the KMRS Community Connection.
“The FAA requires that every five years you solicit qualifications from engineering firms that want to be your airport engineer,” Hill explained. “And actually, we only received one proposal, and that was from TKDA. There’s not a lot of engineering firms that do airport engineering to the level that we’re working on airport projects.”
This week, the City was notified that the FAA is OK with the Environmental Assessment that was done for the upcoming airport project and that it sees no issues that need to be addressed.
