In a press release issued today, the FAA announced that it is taking legal action over the 2003 closure of Meigs Field which could result in penalties against the city of Chicago. Too bad it has taken the FAA so long to act. Maybe if they had taken action sooner, Meigs could have been saved. Well, it is nice to know that Mayor Daley may actually suffer some consequences for his underhanded deeds.
For more information about the legal action, you can contact Greg Martin or Tony Molinaro Phone: 202-267-3883 or 847-294-7427 at the FAA’s Great Lakes Region office.
