   (D)   The prevention of these airport hazards should be accomplished to the extent legally possible, by the exercise of the police power without compensation.
   (E)   The prevention of the creation or establishment of airport hazards and the elimination, removal, alteration, mitigation, or marking and lighting of existing airport hazards are public purposes for which political subdivisions may raise and expend public funds.
