Council ratifies Elliott airport agreement
Placeholder Image
The Dawsonville City Council voted Monday to ratify an agreement that transfers ownership of a portion of the Elliott Field airport runway to the city. The agreement hinges upon a grant from the Federal Aviation Association and the Georgia Department of Transportation, which if attained would allow the city to purchase the rest of the runway as well as surrounding airport property from the Elliotts. The agreement states that if the city and Elliott family cannot agree upon the purchase price of the additional acreage by Nov. 1, 2017, the land will automatically revert back to the Elliotts.
