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.
