NORTH NORWICH – Chenango County has contracted with a new engineering consultant for planning and improvement projects at the Lt. Warren E. Eaton Airport in North Norwich.
After interviews with four potential companies, one of which was the county’s longstanding contractor, C&S Engineering Companies of Syracuse, the Chenango County Airport Steering Committee selected Clough Harbour & Associates of Syracuse for a period of five years. The Federal Aviation Adminstration provides guidance for airport managers in the selection of professional consultants for grant programs.
Steering Committee member Matt Giltner said C&S Engineering came in third place after the oral and visual presentations of all four companies were evaluated. “They could have been more aggressive in meeting the needs of our airport based on the sequence of projects undertaken and the local economy,” he said. C&S has been the county’s airport consultant for more than 25 years. President Rodney Schultes could not be reached for comment on the selection process.
