Fall 1999 – Aircraft noise abatement issues (yet again!)

By T. Sinclair (Tory) Jacobs

A recent article from the BHA News on Aircraft Noise Abatement was forwarded to Miami-Dade County Manager Merrett Stierheim. He responded with the request that his letter refuting some of BHA’s statements be published in the BHA News. You’ll find

Stierheim’s letter along with our latest resonse below.

We are encouraged to have finally gotten the County Manager’s attention…that is, if we really have his attention as yet. Often, CEOs don’t even read letters, but just pass them along to appropriate department heads for action, comment or response…and even when they sign the response, it goes out unread. Naturally, these busy executive depend on staff. ..they just cannot stay abreast of all issues under their purview.

We believe that when the top county officials finally realize what is, or is not, going on at Miami-Dade Aviation Department, MIA will no longer be the only major U.S. airport without a Noise Abatement Program in place.

Outrageous, isn’t it?
