Council backs airport contracts

May 10, 2008|DAN WEIKEL

The City Council on Friday backed the airport commission's approval of a $41.5-million architectural design contract related to the expansion and modernization of Los Angeles International Airport.

Council members decided earlier this week to review the hiring of Fentress Architects after questions were raised over whether airports director Gina Marie Lindsey had improperly influenced the hiring of the Denver-based company as well as of DMJM Aviation Inc. of Florida.

Lindsey and two high-ranking airport executives have told City Council committees there was no attempt to manipulate contracting procedures for projects at LAX.

The review was one of several recent inquiries into the Fentress and DMJM contracts.
