Special Section: LA/Ontario International Airport
ONTARIO – City officials will not know the fate of its proposal to gain control of LA/Ontario International Airport until August when a subcommittee of the Los Angeles City Council meets again.
The council’s Trade, Commerce and Tourism committee was expected to have an interim report of Ontario’s proposal done by the end of June, but the meeting was postponed to July.
Now, Ontario officials have learned the subcommittee isn’t expected to be in session until next month.
Back in March, the subcommittee directed Los Angeles City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana to analyze Ontario’s proposal and determine the fair market value of ONT as well as the process to sell or transfer the airport to Ontario.
“We’re not going to let that stall us,” said Ontario Councilman Alan Wapner, who has been the city’s liaison on the issue.
“I want to make sure it stays in the forefront.”
The completed report was expected within 90 days, which would have occurred in in the middle of this month.
News of the delay is not exactly a surprise to Wapner.
