Staff recommends approval of the Ordinance amending Section 2-162 of the Code of Ordinances pertaining to the Leesburg International Airport Advisory Board.
At the August 27, 2007 City Commission meeting, an Ordinance was approved amending the residency requirement for members of the Airport Advisory Board. The new ordinance requires members to reside within a 20-mile radius of the intersection of Main Street and US Hwy 27 in Leesburg. At that meeting, staff was requested to revise that Ordinance to expand the residency requirement to include the option of either living within the City’s utility area or within the 20-mile radius. The attached ordinance includes that revision.
1. Approve the ordinance amending the Code of Ordinances Section 2-162, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Members of this Board volunteer their time. There will be no fiscal impact to the City as a result of this change.
