Commissioners reject airport privatization proposal

Story Link:

The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners moved to reject a public-private partnership for the lease, operation, and improvement of Gwinnett County Airport-Briscoe Field during its June 5 business session. The board also moved to withdraw the preliminary application to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), pursuant to the FAA’s Airport Privatization Pilot Program. In a letter dated July 5, the FAA confirmed the removal of Briscoe Field from the privatization program.

These actions cease all efforts for potential privatization and commercialization of the Briscoe Field airport.
