Well, to fix the problem would cost the city $110,000...so either pony up the money to fix it or live with a shorter runway. If they float some bonds and raise taxes at the airport a little bit I'm sure it can be paid for.
The city of Danbury seems to be very laid back, with anything to do with the airport. The one thing I do know is if the airport is closed, many, many people will not be happy. After all there are 15 FBO's here
