Mayor Ahumada to Hold Meeting on Airport Deal

Sunday, April 10, 2011 - 10:35am

The Mayor of Brownsville spoke out after the city commission held off on a deal that would bring international flights to the city.

On Tuesday, the City Commission tabled an item for 25 days, although the airline deal was included as an action item. The proposed airline, Fly Frontera, would offer service between Brownsville and the Mexican cities of Monterrey and Tampico. Charter Air Transport and Public Charters are requesting $2 million dollars in subsidies and incentives from the city. During the city commission meeting, the president of Pan American Airways complained that city officials were looking for personal gains in the proposal.

The mayor is holding a town hall meeting at the Amigoland Convention Center in section 3 on Wednesday at 6 PM and residents are welcomed to voice their concerns.
