Brent is twice a member of the BOAC.  He was on the board several years ago and then left.  In 2018 Mayor Evans asked him to return and assist in the development of the airport.  Brent was the owner of Freedom Lawns for many years.  His knowledge of equipment and repairs is a valuable asset for the airport.  He is a pilot and his knowledge of the aviation is a great help in the decisions made by the board.
