Warren County Memorial Airport has had its donation request officially cut by an additional $50,000 by members of the county’s Budget and Finance Committee.The funds would have been used for construction of a maintenance shed, an item tabled during the committee’s last discussion in May. Between then and now, the county’s legal counsel has determined the county cannot construct a building with the intent of allowing another entity to use it. In the case of the shed, airport manager Richard Crawford told committee members in May a portion of the building would be used by Centertown Volunteer Fire Department.“We can’t build something out there and let another entity use it,” said County Executive Herschel Wells of the word he received from legal counsel.
