§ 131.03  SCOPE OF AUTHORITY.
   (A)   The Airport Manager shall, at all times, have authority to take such reasonable action as may be necessary to enforce these regulations and to efficiently manage the Airport and its operations. The Airport Manager may prohibit aircraft landing and taking off under any circumstances which the Airport Manager deems such landings and takeoffs likely to endanger persons or property, except for emergency landings.
   (B)   The Commission is charged with the duty of investigating, studying and making recommendations to the Monroe City Council pertaining to the construction, enlargement, improvement, maintenance, equipment, operation and regulation of the Airport, as enacted in Chapter 32 of the Monroe Code of Ordinances.
   (C)   The Airport Manager reserves the right to periodically review and revise, if necessary, the rules and regulations contained herein. Such revisions would be promulgated only when found to be in the best interest of the City, the Airport lessees, and others directly or indirectly concerned with aircraft operations of the Airport. If any portion of these regulations shall be invalid or unenforceable, all other portions shall remain in effect and be construed to the purposes hereof. In any contingencies not specifically covered by these rules and regulations the Airport Manager shall be authorized to make such reasonable rules, orders, and decisions as may be necessary and proper.
   (D)   These regulations are not intended to amend, modify, or supersede any provision of Federal, State, or local law, or any specific contractual agreement of the City with which they may conflict; provided however that these regulations shall, insofar as possible, be interpreted so that no such conflict shall exist. If State or Federal requirements exceed the intentions or expectations of this Chapter, then the more stringent standard will apply.
   (E)   The Airport Manager or his authorized representative shall have authority to close the Airport or any portions thereof to air operations whenever he considers such action necessary to avoid endangering persons or property. In event the Airport Manager or designated representative believes Airport conditions to be unsafe for landings or take-offs, it shall be within the responsibility of the Airport Manager to have issued a NOTAM closing those areas for aircraft use or any part thereof.
   (F)   The Airport Manager or his authorized representative shall have the right to deny the use of the Airport or any portion thereof to any specific aircraft or to any specific class of aircraft if in his opinion the use of the Airport or any portions thereof by such aircraft might be likely to endanger persons or property or constitute a nuisance.
   (G)   The use of the Airport or any of its facilities in any manner shall create an obligation on the part of the user thereof to obey all the regulations herein provided and adopted by the City. The privilege of using the airport shall be upon the further condition that any person, persons, corporation, partnerships, or others desiring to use the same as a Specialized Aviation Services Operation (SASO) shall furnish a policy of indemnity against personal injury and property damage in a reasonable sum as the City shall require, all said insurance to name the City as additional insured, and the policy shall also contain a section stating that the City shall be informed, in writing, by the insurance carrier thirty (30) days prior to cancellation of the required insurance.
