FAA Fines Chicago Over Meigs Demolition

Tue Oct 05, 2004 4:53 am

The FAA is fining the city of Chicago $33,000 for its demolition of Meigs Field and says it is investigating whether federal funds were improperly diverted to pay for the destruction of the lakefront airport. The city however, failed to give the FAA a required 30-day notice before it shut down Meigs Field.

The FAA is also investigating whether $1.5 million was improperly diverted from the O'Hare Airport Development Fund to pay for the demolition.

Opps! Sorry for posting this again. I looked through the first 2 pages of this forum before I posted this and didn't see that post. I guess I just missed it. Next time I will use the search function instead.
