City panel drops permit requirement for fueling aircraft from private tanks


WILLMAR -- Pilots would not be required to obtain a city permit to fuel their aircraft from private portable fuel tanks under regulations proposed by the Airport Commission and approved Tuesday by the City Council's Public Works/Safety Committee.

City staff had proposed the permit be included as part of the airport's minimum standards for aeronautical activity. The Airport Commission opposed the permit proposal.
