To prepare for the arrival of the new $1 million Aircraft and Rescue Firefighting Vehicle, the England Authority Board of Commissioners declared surplus and excess the 1995 ARFF vehicle to be replaced. As surplus property, the vehicle will be bid to secure the highest price possible for disposal of the property.
Working to improve safety at AEX, the England Authority Board of Commissioners fully funded the projected cost of the Wildlife Hazard Mitigation Project. This project is presently out for bids with projected award of contract by end of February. The project will remove approximately 300 acres of trees on the Westside of the Airpark.
England Airpark took another step forward with the England Authority Board of Commissioners fully funding the projected cost of the new Rental Car Access Road presently out for construction bids. This exciting project will open industrial access to over 50 acres of property.
England Airpark is happy to announce a new two year lease with IPC that will enable the continued support of business operations and support of the Proctor & Gamble complex. IPC came to this community approximately eight years ago and has created over 50 jobs. Thank you IPC for choosing to locate in Central Louisiana and at England Airpark.
