The Logan-Cache Airport is an extremely valuable resource to the Cache Valley community, according to Airport Manager Lee Ivie who presented a report on the airport and its activities to the Cache County Council Tuesday evening.

Ivie said the airport is not just a playground for aircraft enthusiasts. He said the airport makes the area more accessible and it provides a wide variety of services. In fact, it brings in $170,000 in property taxes with Logan and Cache County each contributing $80,000.

“We feel like we are holding our own, as far as operating expenses that way,” Ivie explained. “In addition to that, we have land leases, we have our building that we lease and we get roughly $90,000 from that. Land leases, building leases, fuel fees, landing fees (also contribute).”

Ivie said there are six corporate jets at the airport flying to all parts of the world. He said 47 jobs are directly based at the airport and there are six corporate jobs as well.

Ivie said there is a current effort to help the public become better informed about airport activities.
