turn over ownership of the 900 acre airport and reimburse an FAA grant of The money has been spent already on various capital improvements including an overlay of the airports three runways TxDOT in previous statements has indicated it is pleased with the citys efforts so far and does not anticipate retracting the airport land or grant On Dec 16 TxDOT notified the city that it does not expect it to settle the matter but wants to know the citys course of action by Dec 20 The city said they are trying to reach a resolution with Harriss and the other parties and need more time to schedule
