    The airport board is working on new design parameters for hangars and some concerns were voiced. the way the lease works is that the lessee will build their hangar and have a 20-30 year lease at which time the hangar would revert to the County. The concern the county commissioners have is that a post frame structure may be at the end of it's life expectancy at this point and they would be left with an unusable structure that would need to be removed. What are the thoughts of some of the experts in this area?
