The Adirondack Regional Airport in Harrietstown.
Town of Harrietstown officials are looking to neighboring municipalities that benefit from the Adirondack Regional Airport in Lake Clear to help the town make it economically feasible.
The town is inviting local government officials and the public to an open forum at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, March 21 in the Harrietstown Town Hall to discuss the future of the airport.
“The meeting format will provide basic information regarding the airport, its services to the traveling public, operation and what options are being considered to address the continued operation of the airport,” stated a letter from the town to other government agencies and organizations, including the Adirondack Association of Towns & Villages.
The town is currently facing “critical issues” with the operation of the airport that will impact residents, visitors and users of the airport.
“While the Harrietstown Town Board, must ultimately deal with the financial, service, and operational issues, we know that it will impact on the region, we believe you should have the opportunity to share your thoughts before the town makes any evaluative decisions,” the letter stated.
Both the public and representatives of regional governments will have the opportunity to ask questions, offer comments, and make suggestions.
