The draft Sussex County Air- port policies document, if adopt- ed, would formalize various rules for use of the general avia- tion field near Georgetown, said Jim Hickin, airport manager. The document largely formal- izes policies already in practice. "The policies ensure Sussex County is meeting state and fed- eral requirements for operations of the airfield," said Hickin. "Most importantly, they provide the flying public and citizens of the county a better understand- ing of how the county manages this important facility." Among other things, the docu- ment sets rules for aircraft oper- ations, fueling, long-term vehicle parking, accident reporting and commercial activities. The poli- cies document is currently in draft form and must be approved by Sussex County Council. The county wili hold a public hearing at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 1Z in council chambers. County staff also will be available to dis- cuss the policies at a quarterly airport committee meeting at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 7, inside the county's administrative of- fices West Complex, 22215 DuPont Highway, Georgetown.
