BRAWLEY — The City Council here agreed Tuesday to enter into a contract with Richard Klemm of El Centro to become the city's airport manager/fixed base operator.
The council unanimously voted to allow City Manager Jerry Santillan to negotiate and enter into an agreement with Klemm.
The other candidate was Jamie Pankratz of Brawley.
In November the city airport commission recommended Klemm to the council.
In other city business:
· The council agreed to spend $39,734 for police radars. The money comes from a state Office of Traffic Safety grant. The equipment to be purchased includes 11 in-vehicle radar units, a radar speed-monitoring trailer and two hand-held radar units.
· The council awarded a contract to A&R Construction of Brawley to reconstruct sewage pump lift station No. 1.
Lift station No. 1, on Ninth Street south of Malan Street, receives sewage from the most southwesterly portion of the city and will serve the Brawley Gateway project.
