Naples Airport takes legal action to stop FAA closure

CREATED Mar. 26, 2013

NAPLES, Fla. - The Naples Airport Authority is taking legal action to stop the closure of its control tower in May by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The city is seeking a stay to the FAA's decision to close 149 towers across the country.   The closure are due to budget cuts from the sequester.

FOX 4 News has reached out to the Lee County Port Authority and Charlotte County Airport Authority to see if they plan to take a similar action.

The tower at Page Field in Fort Myers and at the airport in Punta Gorda are scheduled to close on April 21st.
