County, FAA could be headed for 2015 showdown

Huron County Airport Authority board member Jeff Savage said the next year will determine much about the future of the facility.

"I think next year's closings for the raceway will bring a lot of things to a head," he said.

Summit Motorsports Park uses the airport runway a few times per year to exit vehicles during large events.

Savage said, as part of the conditions on receiving Federal Aviation Administration approval for this year's closings, the FAA wants to see two things take place before considering 2015 closings.

"One condition is the FAA wants to see the crack-sealing on the runway done," he said. "That could cost $70,000 and if it isn't done, that could jeopardize the closings."

The second condition is the FAA wants to see a plan that doesn't require the closure of the runway to exit vehicles.
