  • Sacramento County airports director John Wheat said the system plans to cut costs by 15 percent — about $14 million annually — over the next 18 months, the Sacramento Bee reports.

    Faced with a drop in passengers, Wheat says his staff is looking to cut expenses at Executive Airport and Mather Field, and Sacramento International Airport, saying, “Everything is on the table.” He declined to rule out layoffs, but said he hopes to reduce costs through attrition, the Bee reported. The decision to no longer use Executive Airport as an airfield for private planes also is something officials are analyzing, Wheat said.
