Gwinnett Commissioners may postpone airport vote

LAWRENCEVILLE --  A decision on whether to allow ticketed passenger service at Briscoe Field may have to wait a little longer.

A Gwinnett Board of Commissioners votes is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday, but a resolution may be introduced to delay the vote so that more residents can voice their opinions.

The issue at hand is whether to begin to allow larger passenger planes, seating up to 140, to fly in and out of Briscoe Field, which currently serves only coporate jets and small commercial aircraft.

Commissioner John Heard, who is scheduled to introduce the resolution, opposes allowing large passenger planes into the airport.
