WALL TOWNSHIP — The township planning board Monday night unanimously granted Monmouth Executive Airport final approval for improvements designed to comply with standards set by the Federal Aviation Administration [FAA].
According to the plans submitted to the township, Wall Herald Corp. will tear up the current runway and taxiway, reducing the runway width from 125 feet to 100 feet, and relocating the current taxiway.
“It took a long time,” said Matthew Dolan, attorney for Wall Herald Corp. following Monday’s vote. “There were a lot of issues brought up by the township and the objector and we worked through all those issues and we can hopefully move on from here.”
The objections were raised by the owner of a nearby property, who was represented by Ronald S. Gasiorowski, of the firm, Gasiorowski & Holobinko in Red Bank. On Monday night, however, attorney Gordon Gemma, of Gemma Real Estate Services, said he was standing in for Mr. Gasiorowski.
“My client is going to consider all his legal rights and remedies upon consultation with his primary lawyer. Tonight I just stepped in as a favor to a friend,” Mr. Gemma said after the hearing.
