Fly-in at Chetek Municipal Airport

Land rental fees for privately-owned hangars are increasing at Chetek’s Southworth Municipal Airport. Pictured above, at the 2016 Chetek Flyin and Boat Show, a Piaggio Royal Gull amphibious flying boat taxis while a “Huey” Bell Iroquois helicopter circles the airport. In the background sits a Piper Cub.

The City of Chetek met for its monthy meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 15. One of the agenda items involved a tabled agenda item for hangar lease renewals from the October council meeting. During its October meeting, the council mentioned needing further deliberation on lease amendments before going forward with the renewals.

City council members said they have been made aware of lease agreement violations including some hangar lessees who may be using the spaces as a residential space.
