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.

To offset a 13% drop in passenger volume last year brought on by a worsening recession, the city's Airport Commission voted Monday to increase terminal rents at LA/Ontario International Airport. The falloff in air travel led to a marked decline in revenue from landing fees, concessions and parking, and that forced Los Angeles World Airports -- which operates the Ontario facility, together with Los Angeles International and Van Nuys airports -- to urge commissioners to increase rents in the facility's terminals by 15% from $131 per square foot to $150 per square foot per year.
