Mukilteo to fight Paine Field airline flights

The  Associated Press

MUKILTEO — The Mukilteo City Council voted Monday night to appeal the FAA decision allowing commercial air service at Paine Field.

Mayor Joe Marine told KING a lawyer hired by the city will file the appeal in federal court.

A Federal Aviation Administration study determined that commercial flights would not significantly increase noise, traffic or pollution in the area. Paine Field is located in Everett but borders Mukilteo.

The airport is owned by Snohomish County and is largely used by Boeing and other aerospace operations.
