Salem taxpayers are also guaranteeing a profit for the airlines that could cost taxpayers $1.2million.
Salem is once again subsidizing Keizer and other users of Salem services. Most airports charge a fee for the use of a municipal airport. This contract prohibits charging a facility fee, so if an expansion is needed, Salem taxpayers get to fund that. Salem only collects eight cents per gallon of aviation fuel. This is another way to subsidize those that use the airport.

While it is nice to have passenger air service in Salem, it would be much more equitable for all if the users of the air service paid for the service instead of having this service subsidized by all of Salem's residents.
