S'port airport parking company "Nationwide" out next week

Shreveport, LA (KSLA)-  Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover has vowed to do everything he can to get the 700 hundred thousand dollars owed the city in airport parking fees. The company that is currently operating the parking at Shreveport Regional Airport must be out by four o'clock Tuesday on July 6th.

Nationwide parking has been under bankruptcy protection since February, making it impossible for the airport to get its share of money collected every day.

A ruling by a bankruptcy judge in Denver on July freed the City of Shreveport and the airport authority from the remainder of the contract.

The mayor said they intends on taking legal action to get the 700 thousand dollars owed to the city.

"Whenever you have gotten money that's been taken away from you, you can never be confident that you're going to get it back unless you see it sitting here on the table and know you're big enough and bad enough to take it back from the guy who's trying to hold it from you," said Glover.

Mayor Glover says the city is currently reviewing four proposals from parking operators and that the chosen company would serve on a month-to-month basis until a long-term solution is finalized.
