Springdale Commission Considers Airport Renovation

Posted: February 22, 2013 at 4:44 a.m.

Robert Carter, left, and Chris Stecklein eat lunch Thursday at Flaps Down Grill inside the Springdale Municipal Airport. The restaurant is looking in to expanding the size of their space. The restaurant’s capacity is 49 people.

The city Airport Commission will try to cut a wish list of terminal improvements to reach a manageable cost.

This story is only available from our archives.

$550,000 for resturant renovation. For that amount of money, sounds like you could build a new resturant at the Airport. I agree with Mr. Johnson, I didn't think we were in the resturant business. Something also sounds fishy, Mr Adams said expansion was discussed before he agreed to open the resturant, who did he talk with, and what kind of a deal was made to open the resturant. According to the news article, Mr. Adams owns the resturant why should the City pay for resturant renovations? Is this resturant so busy that it is going to produce enough revenue to pay for the 550,000 it is going to cost to renovate? If Mr. Adams pays rent at the Airport, when the renovations are done his rent should go up a whole lot. If I find an old building on Emma Ave, will the city renovate the building for me, so I can put a resturant in? Just asking.

No, you have to be a member of the famous "Good Ole Boys Club."

I believe some time ago a poster named Rumple predicted this very thing would happen. There is a lot of dirt that needs swept out at city hall.

Hillary is Rumple. It's really just getting sad at this point.

A high fiber diet would be beneficial.

Have a great day.

Look at the photo, it states it is at lunch time these two guys are the only ones in there. Why would this amount of money be spent for a failing business ? Something is bad wrong with this whole thing. There has to be more to this than what has been reported, but again the news just hits the surface of a story and overlooks the obvious. What is wrong with asking questions ?
