Council clarifies membership of the Mount Gambier Regional Airport Strategy Committee

Council wish to clarify that contrary to The Border Watch article 05 March 2019, the proposed membership of the Mount Gambier Regional Airport Strategy Committee (MGRASC) has not been endorsed by Council. The decision on membership was suspended on 18 February 2019 for further consideration and review before determining a final resolution.

Council are looking for a future report to come back to the next Council meeting 18 March 2019 to discuss the membership structure of the Mount Gambier Regional Airport Strategy Committee (MGRASC), based on preliminary discussions the CEO, David Singe has had with Regional Express Airlines (REX) staff in Adelaide.

Mayor Richard Sage stated that “REX, being our valued partner and regional carrier, will be an integral part of the MGRASC, with the final proposal yet to be ascended to by full Council. It is paramount that our joint partnership with REX continues to strengthen and add value, with increased flights in and out of the region enhancing our combined efforts in this joint venture. We are looking forward to the future with the Mount Gambier Regional Airport redevelopment project commencing shortly.”

Mayor Sage hopes to meet with the REX CEO and REX Board of Management in Sydney later this week to work on this initiative.
