After much discussion, county commissioners voted unanimously on Feb. 19, to rent Randall Terry an existing commercial hangar at Cleve Randolph Field.

The action was recommended by the airport advisory committee.

On January 2, Terry requested the county use existing Florida Department of Transportation grant money to construct a 60” by 60” hanger to house his business, TP Transport LLC. At the time, he was renting a t-hangar at the airport but said he needed a bigger space.

He offered to pay $500 monthly for the building and requested a 20-year lease.

Commissioners voted not to grant Terry a lease but to move ahead with requesting bids to construct a new commercial hangar.

At the Feb. 5 meeting, five bids on the construction project were opened but all exceeded the available funds, $190,000.

The lowest bid, $196,000, came from Sperry and Associates of Tallahassee.
