SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to abandon Tatum Airport and release the State of New Mexico from the Grant Assurances, and change the status of the lands at the Tatum Airport.

The State of New Mexico as owner of the airport that is on state owned land filed notice with the FAA to permanently abandon Tatum Airport, Tatum, NM. As a result of this request the state will make restitution in the amount of $27,362.00 for the fencing installed by FAA Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Grant in 2002 (one and only AIP Grant at this airport) by investing the same amount of funds in an AIP project at Navajo Lake Airport, Navajo Dam, NM. Prior to the 2002 Grant being issued, Tatum Airport was not federally obligated. This abandonment will result in the lands of the Tatum Airport being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the AIP Grant Agreement Grant Assurances.
