Warren County Memorial Airport director Richard Crawford has submitted the airport’s quarterly report to County Executive John Pelham and members of the Warren County Commission.
In a letter, Crawford stated the airport has generated over $269,700 in sales and rent year-to-date for fiscal year 2013-14.
Crawford said the apron project at the airport is now complete. He said the cracked asphalt has been removed and new asphalt has been laid.
“In April of this year, the final seal coat and permanent markings were applied. The airport will benefit for years to come with a safe and sound aircraft taxing area for pilots and ground equipment,” said Crawford.
Crawford said the terminal building has been named after Joe and Betty Howard.
“In May, bids were placed for additional equipment and a new coat of paint for the community hangar,” said Crawford.
He said a John Deere Gator has been used for many years in providing ground maintenance at the airport but is in need of replacement.
“A new Universal Terrain Vehicle or UTV is in the process of being purchased,” said Crawford.
According to Crawford, it has been 10 plus years since the community hangar has been painted. That project has been bid and bids will be reviewed by the Financial Management Committee.
