The public is invited to a meeting October 6th where a bylaw to authorize the sale will be presented and they can ask questions and submit written comments to council.

Offers to buy the property need to be submitted by October 14th. Anyone who wants more information can get a package by contacting the clerk.

The airport will continue to operate as the sale is processed.
