Gwinnett Citizens Airport Panel Complete
Lasseter makes choices to the 11-member panel reviewing Briscoe Field privatization.
The 11-member citizens panel that will review Gwinnett County's Briscoe Field privatization process is now complete. District 1 Commissioner Shirley Lasseter, made her choices Tuesday, naming Terry Britt and Nickie Summers.
Other commissioners had made their choices earlier in October, when the board also authorized consultants IMG to begin assisting the county with the RFP process for the airport.
"Neither one of them have a dog in the fight other than to do what's best for Gwinnett County," Lasseter said of her appointees.
No meeting date has been set by the panel, and the county is not sure when it formally will issue RFPs. Commissioners currently are thinking of continuing to operate the county-owned airport as a general aviation airport. Commercial passenger service could be proposed by a potential operator as part of a long-term vision.
