Could the Toledo Express Airport become privatized?

During the Toledo News Now/Toledo Free Press mayoral debate Wednesday, Mayor Mike Bell confirmed that city leaders have had discussions about privatizing the airport.

Bell stressed the discussions are in the early stages, but said he would be open to a private entity taking over operations.

Councilman Mike Collins, also running for mayor, said he would also be open to the airport being privatized, saying the Port Authority is currently losing money running it.
