Section 155.290 Conditions For Building Facilities.

[R.O. 2009 §2.96.340; Ord. No. 4095 §5(E), 1980]
New hangars or other new required space facilities for an operation will be built by the City only if the applicant agrees to sign a lease which will at least fully amortize the investment in the facilities in twenty-five (25) years or less and then only if the surety on the lease is sufficient to enable the City to pay for such facility so constructed. No buildings may be constructed on the airport unless the plans and specifications therefore are approved by the City and a contract entered into with the City providing for the location of building, the use of land, the payment of taxes, the control of building by the City and such other contractual provisions as the City may see fit to impose for the protection of the public interest.

Anyone using the facilities of Sikeston Memorial Airport shall do so in a prudent and safe manner in accord with applicable Federal aviation regulations. The City reserves the right to bar or limit the activities of any person or entity at Sikeston Memorial Airport in the interest of public safety.
