CHILLICOTHE, MO – During a short meeting of Chillicothe Council members last night, steps were taken to ensure orderly business at the city airport.
Attorney, Robert Cowherd, notified council members that airport officials desired to ensure better control for aerial applicators performing crop spraying. The change is mainly to ensure part-time users of the airport know the basic rules and regulations regarding insurance and environment. Council approved delegation of authority to airport management for entering into contracts with aerial applicators, ensuring adherence to regulations by pilots and companies using the airport for that purpose. City Administrator, Darin Chappell, indicated there had been problems with pilots not being “as fastidious” as the city would like them to be.
