October 12, 2021 Good Morning Truckee: Truckee and Reno Airport Updates

September 27, 2021

The October 12th Good Morning Truckee will focus on both the Truckee Tahoe Airport and the Reno Tahoe International Airport.

Kicking it off will be Kevin Smith, the General Manager of the Truckee Tahoe Airport for over a decade. Kevin will discuss the latest happenings at the airport, the new Airport Community Team (ACT) and more. The ACT is a monthly virtual public forum established to discuss items of public interest and provide information between the District, airport users, and the general public. 

Next will be Daren Griffin, President and CEO of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. He took the post a little over a year ago, in challenging times for the aviation industry when COVID-19 triggered a steep drop in passenger counts as well as the loss of flights. Daren will discuss the current passenger and flight levels, safety measures in place as well as airport projects in the works.

Viewers can participate through Zoom, watch the livestream at Truckee.com/GoodMorningTruckee, tahoe truckee media.org, or on Suddenlink Channel 18. The session will be recorded and available for viewing at a later date.

If you have any events coming up or announcements of interest to the community, you can email them Lynn@Truckee.com by Monday, October 11th at 5:00 pm and it will be read at the end of the program. Or if you are on Zoom, you can make your own announcement. Announcements should be able to be read in one minute or less.

Good Morning Truckee is a community forum to provide timely, relevant information on a variety of topics. It is open to the public – everyone is invited free of charge. It is held the second Tuesday of every month virtually from 7:30-8:30 am.

Whether you are new to the community or have lived here for years, hearing from our leaders in the community is an enjoyable way to stay on top of important issues, connect and engage. One of the great things about living in a small community like Truckee is that you can personally know your leaders and work with them to make a difference.
