MARTINSBURG - Rick Wachtel, chairman of the Eastern Regional Airport Authority, came "hat in hand" Monday to the Berkeley County Public Service Water District seeking a share in revenue the water district will get by leasing space on a water tank in the Airport Authority's business park for cellphone antennae.
"We want to share in the revenue, because we are literally always broke," Wachtel
"We're looking for any source of revenue.
"As it became known to us that Shentel wanted to place antennae on the tank, Airport Authority members requested that I not sign the agreement with the water district," Wachtel
Rhoe asked Wachtel
"No - I don't think so," Wachtel
answered, adding that the decision would be up to the members of the Airport Authority
