Happy early Independence Day!

 

Since we have been unable to hold our quarterly Airport Advisory Board meetings of late, we have been using this time to seriously consider other ways to foster more user-friendly communications with each of you when we get the green light to resume in-person meetings.

 

Below you'll find a link to a very short survey that could help guide us in preparing a recommendation to the City. The basic question we're attempting to answer: is the existing Airport Advisory Board Meeting structure the optimum format for open, two-way communication with our users and tenants?

 

Please give us a hand by taking two minutes to complete the survey and provide your feedback, and thanks for taking the time to support San Marcos Regional Airport.

We hope you all have a safe and relaxing holiday weekend.

 

Fly safe,

AIRPORT TO RECEIVE FUNDS FROM CARES ACT

San Marcos Regional Airport was awarded $157,000 as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic (CARES) Act approved by Congress. The funds, awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration, are meant to support continuing airport operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Airport revenue over the coming months will be closely monitored to determine how best to utilize the funds. Any funds not used for operational costs may be used for capital projects or as a match to any federal grants received in the future.
