An ordinance authorizing the City of Mansfield to enter into a lease agreement with Niss Aviation for Fixed Base Operator (FBO) services at Lahm Airport was approved Tuesday night by Mansfield City Council.
The lease is a component part of actions that will see the company invest $2 million into the facility to create a “fuel farm,” build a new hangar, and provide professional staff in the Lahm Airport terminal.

When the lease came up for consideration Tuesday evening, Councilman Phil Scott repeated comments he made at the last meeting focusing on the oustanding opportunity this proposal provides for the City of Mansfield.
One question was posed by Councilman Jon Van Harlingen, who inquired about the status of the actual lease agreement. Public Works Director David Remy responded that the lease agreement was completed at 4:00 PM that afternoon, and included some 25 to 35 pages. He assured Council members that the agreement was in a final form.
Among other actions, Council held its first official reading on its 2021 Budget, and also approved an ordinance removing the one way traffic restriction on Diamond Street from First Street on the south to Sixth Street on the north.
