Appeals court denies legal challenge to commercial flights at Paine Field
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - A state appellate court has denied a legal challenge looking to stop commercial passenger flights from coming to Paine Field in Snohomish County.
The Everett Daily Herald reports that the state Court of Appeals Division I on Monday denied the challenge from the city of Mukilteo and the Save Our Communities neighborhood group.
The city and the neighborhood group had asked the courts to review an option-to-lease agreement Snohomish County had approved for the company Propeller Airports.
The county contract, approved in 2015, gave Propeller three years to design and secure permits for a two-gate terminal at Paine Field.
Mukilteo Mayor Jennifer Gregerson said Monday that it was too soon to know if the city will take further action.
