FAA Dismisses Complaint Against Kent County, Michigan

On March 28, 2013, the FAA Director of the Office of Airport Compliance and Management Analysis dismissed a complaint filed under FAR Part 16 by two FBOs against Firm client, Kent County, Michigan.  The complainants are two FBOs at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.  They alleged multiple violations of the Grant Assurances in connection with the County’s consideration of a request by a third FBO to lease property at the Airport.  The Director rejected each of the claims and found that the County had complied fully with the Grant Assurances in its consideration and negotiation of the lease.
