The Iberia Parish Airport Authority has voted to create a new lease for hangar rentals at LeMaire Memorial Airport, the Daily Iberian reports.

The agenda item, which legal counsel Dean Wattigny said had been discussed for many months, is an attempt to comply with state law regarding bidding, the newspaper reports.

“This is an item we’ve been discussing for a while. As you know we need to comply with state law for public bids on LeMaire hangars,” Wattigny said.

The changes will set rents at a fair market value, and also change the lengths of the leases.
