City acquires airport

POSTED: February 6, 2017 8:27 p.m.

The city council on Monday voted to acquire an airport owned and operated by the Elliott family, a prominent local family that includes NASCAR drivers Bill and Chase.

After an executive session to discuss land acquisition, Council Member Caleb Phillips made the motion to "accept the airport acquisition agreement between the city and the Elliott family with the land and airport being at no cost to the city."

The motion also authorized Dawsonville Mayor James Grogan to sign the agreement.

Council Member Angie Smith seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously, with members Mike Sosebee and Jason Power also voting in favor.

The Elliott family will continue to operate the formerly privately-owned airport as normal. The airport is located four miles northwest of the city of Dawsonville.

Future plans for the airport were not announced at the meeting.
