ST. CLOUD – Allegiant Airlines has reconsidered their plan to temporarily suspend air service between St. Cloud and Mesa, Arizona later this year.

During his State of the City Address today (Tuesday), St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis says they will continue to offer one flight a week between August 14th and October 9th.

Last month Allegiant had announced that they were planning on suspending flights for about six week, during what they say is a slow period for air travel.

Allegiant has offered two flights a week between Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona and the St. Cloud Regional Airport.

The city of St. Cloud and St. Cloud State University are beefing up the police presence on campus.  Kleis announced a new police partnership with the University.

Kleis says the University will be adding the officers already later this month.

Kleis is making another pitch to area cities to join the Regional Human Rights Office.  Last fall St. Joseph dropped out of the program, leaving St. Cloud as the only city supporting the office.  Kleis offered the neighboring cities a no-cost option.

Kleis says after the two-and-a-half month period has passed, if area cities are interested in continuing their partnership he’ll figure out a way to help pay for their participation.
