The Sun Valley Air Service Board was created through a Joint Powers Agreement adopted by Blaine County and the cities of Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley in 2012 and 2013 in preparation for the successful voter passage of a 1% increase in Local Option Tax in the three cities. The Agreement was extended for an additional five years (to May 15, 2024). The Joint Powers Agreement creates a board of limited powers with the purpose of retaining, improving, developing and promoting commercial air service to Friedman Memorial Airport. The board is a separate legal entity, and will include voting representatives from each of the three cities and a nonvoting representative of Blaine County. Board members include Mayors Peter Hendricks, Martha Burke and Neil Bradshaw and County Commissioner Muffy Davis.
