C. All activities at the airport must comply with airport, City of Sunnyside, State of Washington and federal laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations.

No burning or dumping of any material shall be permitted without approval of the Airport Manager.

H. No person on the airport shall store or stack material or equipment in such a manner as to constitute a hazard to personnel or property.

All stored or stacked material shall not obstruct any imaginary surface regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

I. Tenants, licensees, and grantees shall be fully responsible for all damage to buildings, equipment, real property, and appurtenances in the ownership or custody of the City caused by negligence, abuse, or carelessness on the part of their employees, agents, customers, visitors, suppliers, or persons with whom they may do business.

L. No person shall conduct business operations at the airport under a business name the same as or deceptively similar to the business name of any other tenant previously established at the airport.
