Department which gave the city until Dec 20 to rid the airport of exclusionary contracts at the airport or turn over ownership of the 900acre land and reimburse a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration The city obtained ownership of the airport from the federal government in 1969 with the condition that it maintain a policy of competition for airport services and leases TxDOT officials have said the current exclusionary clause in Harriss leases are in violation of FAA regulations TxDOT investigator Jim Cummins responded with a written statement that his office was not aware of the eviction notice but that measure alone would not ensure that the city is in compliance However the statement indicated that TxDOT is pleased with the citys efforts so far City officials said the eviction is another step in the process of complying with TxDOTs request Harriss has two leases with the city and also has a sublease with New Braunfels Aero whose 1970 contract with the city includes most of the airport land New Braunfels Aero leased its land to Engine Components Inc of San Antonio which iif turn leased most of its land to Harriss City officials said they are in mediation with ECI and New Braunfels Aero to remove the exclusionary clauses in Harriss contracts Bill Cassel president of CasAir Aviation filed the original complaint on March 15 to TxDOT Cassel has a lease with ECI for one hangar which prohibits him from selling aviation fuel at the airport Waldrip Horse FUNERflLHOME Jack T Jack T Taber USAF Retired took his final flight home on Dec 5 having served his
