Fast Focus 'Future of Vista Field:' It must make money to stay open

February 24, 2013 

If the airport doesn't make money, close it and sell or lease the land for some other purposes. Right now, Vista is losing $200,000 per year of taxpayers' money. In 2013, I'll pay $73 in property tax on my West Richland home to the Port of Kennewick, for what? When do I start receiving tangible dividends on my investment? Sorry, but the lighthouse doesn't impress me.
