Winooski City Council says no to F-35s

WINOOSKI, Vt. -

Winooski city councilors are saying no to the F-35-- for now.

In a unanimous vote Wednesday night, the Council moved to ask the Air Force to remove Burlington from the first round of base selection.

The Council says it has asked the Air Force questions about environmental impacts that have not been adequately addressed. Mayor Michael O'Brien says without those answers, it makes it difficult to support the proposal. He says the city could reconsider the issue if it gets the information it has requested.
