R. Kaufman, president of; the board, was authorized to ex- i ecute a contract with the low' bidder, R. E. Heidt Construe-! tion Co., when federal and state < funds are assured for the project. Kaufman told the board the Louisiana Department of Public Works had allocated $110,000 * * * towards the construction b u t that he had not yet received official notice of the action. The Federal Aviation Authority had previously agreed to match funds up to $250,000 for the construction of the runway, The president said there was about, $140,000 in the airport building fund to take care of the remainder of the runway costs. Airport Manager William (Bill) Dumatrait told the board the addition of the runway could possibly increase the revenues of the airport. Although the prevailing winds * * * at the airport are north-south, in many months of the year the cross winds make it unsafe for small craft to land at the field, Dumatrait said. With the new runway, there could be an increase in t h e number of small craft using the services of the field which would add revenues in hangar rental and the sale of fuel. Calcasieu Parish Police Jury members were guests of the board at the regular monthly meeting. | Kaufman asked the jurors to consider the operations of the airport at deactivated C h e n- nault Air Force Basfe as competition for the municipal airport. The police jury operates portions of Chennault and is also the parent authority of the municipal airport board. • Traffic operation at the Lake | Charles Municipal Airport con-! tinued to show Rains over 1963; although air carrier traffic has' decreased by almost 20 per cent.
