South Central Regional Airport: Money is being spent and lives are being disrupted. With NO representation

The city of Pella, the city of Oskaloosa, and the county of Mahaska have joined forces to create a 28e agreement. They have created a committee of appointed, not elected, officials to facility an airport project. This committee of non-elected officials have the right to condemn land in order to build an airport. They have already laid the plans out without representation of the people who are being directly affected by this project. We need YOUR help in getting this process stopped. We MUST say NO to these types of projects when no representation has happened. Please help us speak out. Join our mailing list for more info.
