Yesterday, McCarran Internal Airport announced that they would be increasing their fees for parking and ground transportation for, among other reasons “because of the county’s budget deficit“. This is complete BS. Per page 6 of the 2007 Financial Report of McCarran Airport/Clark County Department of Aviation “The Department comprises a single enterprise fund of Clark County (the County), and operates as a separate self sufficient enterprise of the County“ (emphasis added). Continued reading of the 2007 Financial Report tells us that all money used for the operation of the airport is gathered through the fees the airport charges and all revenue gathered is used for the airport. If the airport wants to raise fees, fine, but don’t BS us by telling us that it is because of budget cuts.
