Town council made the decision to move toward the sale of the Rimbey Airport following an in-camera discussion at its regular council meeting, July 25.
Mayor Rick Pankiw says approximately two months ago the Town of Rimbey was approached by a group looking to purchase the airport.
The offer was too low for council to accept; it did however spark a discussion from council on whether or not they had an intent to sell the airport.
Earlier this summer the airport was appraised and council set the reserve bid at $125,000.
“The reason we did that, as a council, we had to decide what we’d be satisfied on for the resident of Rimbey,” said Pankiw.
