Napa County Lake Berryessa Airport Renovation Project: The Action Behind The Scenes | Local News
Before the supervisory board votes on a staff recommendation, the county will reveal the names of all referees. Supervisors will review the staff’s recommendation in open session before giving their final approval, the statement said.
“I have never been so optimistic about Lake Berryessa as I am now,” Pedroza said on Monday. “I am very excited about the future of the lake, of sustainable economic development, which works for the residents of Napa County and Lake Berryessa.”
Napa County Airport is a separate issue behind closed doors. In this case, the county is looking for another fixed base operator for the airport, in addition to long-time operator Lynx FBO Network.
Once again, closed session agendas identify the party the county is negotiating with as “the company to be selected.”
The county’s goal is to redo part of the WWII airport it calls the “Skyport to Wine Country”. The airport located near the South County Wetlands serves business jets, charter and freight flights, as well as private jet owners.
An additional fixed base operator would build an additional terminal. This would provide additional hangar space, refueling and other services.
“In order to maintain its bargaining position, the county does not disclose the names or number of companies that respond to (request for proposals) until the selected company has committed to all points of agreement and to the rental language, ”said director of public works Steven Lederer.
