In July 2015, the City Council requested the City Attorney to prepare a legal opinion as a companion document to a study to determine the feasibility of constructing and operating a Federal Inspection Facility at the Long Beach Municipal Airport. The requested opinion was prepared (“City Attorney’s Opinion Regarding Federal Inspection Station” (FIS)- October 4, 2016) and has been distributed to the City Council and has also been posted on this and other City websites.

Since the distribution of the above referenced opinion, the City Attorney’s Office has received a written legal opinion from the FAA dated October 18, 2016, that is relevant to the discussion regarding a FIS facility at the Airport. A copy of the FAA opinion may be accessed by clicking the link below.
