I am writing on behalf of the Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce to express our gratitude for a job well done by Dave Carman, former manager of the Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport.
Dave implemented a number of important projects, including the critical instrument landing system, plans for the new runway safety areas, a realignment of Airport Road, designs for a 48-kilowatt solar array, and developed plans for hangar development on the west side of the airport.
The projects and improvements Dave Carman shepherded are too many to mention here, but suffice it to say that we are truly grateful. We can only hope to find a replacement of his caliber and commitment to the greater Rutland community.
THOMAS L. DONAHUE
(CEO, Rutland Region
Chamber of Commerce)
