Airport hangar project won't take flight
Placeholder Image
A new maintenance hangar for Warren County Memorial Airport has suffered its last and final rejection.“This project is dead,” said County Executive Herschel Wells. “As of right now, it is. Unless they want to come back later, they don’t have the money.”The county Budget and Finance Committee met Jan. 14 and rejected the airport’s proposed funding mechanism of transferring $50,000 from its current gasoline fund and using $40,000 the county provided for a different project and combining those moneys with $83,000 the airport currently has to generate $173,000 to construct the building.Because bids were accepted for the project, the county Financial Management Committee had to reject those.
