Longmont Airport and the City of Longmont (Airport Proprietor)

LONGMONT AIRPORT NOISE COMPLAINT LOGS

The Chairman of the Airport Advisory Board analyzed and summarized the 2014 airport noise complaints.  His “analysis” resulted in many complaints being classified as “invalid.”  Do you believe this kind of analysis and clear attempt to delete complaints will encourage or discourage people from taking the time to register a noise complaint?
