Welcome to a new Tacoma Sun column called King for a Day. The column where you take on important decisions facing the city.
Here’s today’s situation: You’re the king of the city. The city is strapped for cash and has an airport it doesn’t know what to do with. Should you sell it? And if so, for how much? On September 16, 2008, our city council and mayor will have to decide exactly this.
Here is the text of the resolution:
Authorizing the execution of a purchase and sale agreement with Pierce County and the Peninsula Metropolitan Park District, in the amount of $5,000,000, for the Tacoma Narrows Airport and all associated real, intangible and personal properties.
