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.
