Grant Funding for Airport
Paul McDonald from Clough, Harbour and Associates stated to the Board that there is grant money available for the Airport Capital Improvement Plan through the FAA. Paul stated that one thing that was not done was to blast rock out of the south end of the Airport Strip and grade it off and then they can apply for the resurfacing of the blacktop. The cost to the taxpayers would be around $10,000.00, and you can have it done in one year or over several years. If the Town can help out it will save the taxpayers even more money. The Board will give it some thought and get back to Clough, Harbour and Associates.
