Thursday, July 05, 2012

Officials announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration is awarding the airport an $8 million grant.

"We're very pleased to receive it and thank the FAA for their support."

Linda Cutler is with the airport. She says the money is the latest installment in a series of grants the FAA has pledged for continuing construction projects.
 
"The Big Build is actually still going on. Although the buildings are finished, we are continuing to do refinements such as the demolition of the old Terminal B, continued expansion of aprons for overnight parking for aircraft, things like that."
 
The FAA has pledged $60 million in total with the last payment due to be paid in 2015. The grants are part of the FAA's "Airport Improvement Program."
