§8-29B-3. Rules and regulations; penalties.
Each airport operator shall have plenary power and authority
to manage and control the airport under its jurisdiction, to
promulgate rules and regulations concerning the management and
control of such airport and to enforce any such rules and
regulations so promulgated. Any rules and regulations promulgated
shall be printed and posted in a conspicuous public place on the
airport premises. The violation of any such rule or regulation
shall constitute a misdemeanor, and any person convicted of any
such violation shall be punished by a fine of not less than five
dollars nor more than one hundred dollars or by imprisonment in
jail for a period not exceeding thirty days, or by both such fine
and imprisonment. Justices of the peace of the county shall have
concurrent jurisdiction with the circuit court and other courts of
record having criminal jurisdiction of any misdemeanor offenses
arising under this article. Violation of any such rule or
regulation which also constitutes the violation of any federal or
state law or municipal ordinance may be prosecuted and punished as
a violation of such federal or state law or municipal ordinance
rather than under the provisions of this article. It shall be the
duty of every airport operator in this state to promulgate all
rules and regulations deemed necessary for airport security.
