Approximately one tenth ($67,000) of the Airport's operating budget is provided by the County general fund. The balance is provided by aircraft fuel sales, land leases, hangar rents, landing fees and other miscellaneous service charges.

Major improvements to the Airport, including infrastructure and equipment, are funded through Federal and State grants with the County providing approximately five percent of the total costs


As a result of accepting these Federal grant dollars, the County is obligated to maintain the Airport for a period of twenty years from receipt of the grant.
