This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers

We were happy to see so many of you (17% of the total number who took our informal poll) say your airport is considered a vital community resource and report that local officials are always looking for ways to improve it.

The most popular choice, according for 35% of responses, was that most people recognize its value and importance, though there are detractors.
