There's going to be a change in management services at the Kincardine Airport, come April.
The new firm, which provides similar services at airports in Owen Sound and Hanover, replaces Evans Aviation, which had been the operator of the facility for the past 10-years or so.
Outgoing manager Blake Evans says he's disappointed with the decision but says he's quite proud of the work his company did such as the negotiations that resulted in a major rehabilitation of the main runway.
Mayor Anne Eadie appreciates the effort of Evans Aviation over the years, but the town policy called for others to compete for the job, along with Evans.
She says besides Evans Aviation, three other firms answered the Request for Proposals with Stephen Rouse of Phoenix AMG being the successful applicant.
The Phoenix proposal also states they can offer savings on fuel through bulk buys with its other operations; plans on offering charter flight service to Kincardine; creating an aviation school and providing an on-site food truck to improve the customer experience.
Evans says it was a good run and hopefully the airport will carry on providing top quality services to the municipality.
