Witchita's Choice for Airport Work Has Troublesome Past

The firm that Wichita city staff has selected to manage the building of a new airport terminal is part of a network of companies involved in an ongoing federal and state corruption investigation at Los Angeles International Airport

Mayor Carlos Mayans said he wants to know more about the company before approving the contract.

"We must always try to work with ethical partners," he said. "We want to have a qualified applicant, that conducts business in an ethical way."

Council member Sue Schlapp said, "I can't stand in judgment on any of that (information) at this point."

But she said she would expect a full report from the city staff.

"I'm under the assumption that's being done at this time," she said.
