Spokane City Council member Amber Waldref last night sponsored a resolution in favor of keeping the Felts Field air traffic control tower operations going, despite impending Federal sequestration cuts that would shut it down. The Council approved the resolution 6-0 as there is agreement that air traffic control at Felts is critical for safe operations, for defense and life safety, and other flight activities vital to our regional economy.
Today, Councilmembers will take the resolution to Washington, DC to speak to legislators there about it. This will happen as part of the annual delegation organized by Greater Spokane, Inc. that travels to D.C. to visit with federal legislators to advocate on behalf of Spokane issues.
