PUNTA GORDA — Bruce Laishley leaned forward and patted his general manager on the back seconds after hearing Smugglers had received the bid for a proposed a multi-use event center on airport property.

The Charlotte County Airport Authority voted 3-2 — with Kathleen Coppola and Robert Hancik dissenting — Thursday to negotiate a proposed lease agreement for $14,922 a month with Smugglers Event Management, co-owned by Laishley.
