Lake Charles Airport Authority Approves $2M Budget
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — The Lake Charles Regional Airport Authority has approved a budget package for 2015 with total operating expenses projected to be $2.06 million with revenue at $2.23 million.
Airport officials tell the American Press some of the larger expenses on the operating side are several pieces of capital equipment for maintenance of the grounds. The airport also will add two full-time positions in its Public Safety Department.
An increase in total revenue of 15 percent can be anticipated for the maintenance fund.
Heath Allen, executive director, says the Airport is currently home to more than 30 tenants operating in several different business classifications.
