Creswell to Fight FAA Discrimination Complaint
February 15, 2012
CRESWELL, Ore. — The Creswell City Council passed a motion to fight a discrimination complaint filed with the Federal Aviation Administration.
The complaint forced the city to reconsider its commitment to the municipal airport.
That legal issue started in 2006 when the city banned skydivers from the airport, citing safety and liability issues.
The owner of a local skydiving company disagreed, so he filed a discrimination complaint with the FAA in December.
“Nobody here wants to close the airport. This is not what this is about. This is about how we move forward,” said Creswell Mayor Bob Hooker.
Mayor Hooker says despite being unable to solve the conflict with negotiation, the city has the support to fight the complaint.
He says he doesn’t expect a ruling until December.
