Sac affirms air cargo decision

Last Tuesday’s Sacramento County Board of Supervisors’ meeting was a formality to move forward with the decision to expand Mather Airport’s air cargo operations previously approved on Aug. 12.

Critics claimed the project failed to follow California Environmental Quality Act guidelines; however, after more discussion on Aug. 26, the county’s Mather Airport 20-year Master Plan and Environmental Impact Review was re-approved with the same 3-1 vote. Supervisors Don Nottoli, Jimmie Yee and Phil Serna supported the plan. Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan was the only no vote. Supervisor Susan Peters abstained from voting because she owns property in Mather.

The expansion has received criticism from El Dorado County residents and officials.

El Dorado County District 1 Supervisor Ron Mikulaco told Village Life, “I’m very disappointed in Sacramento County’s decision to proceed with this. As a representative from District 1 I’m encouraging all my colleagues to keep their options open.”
