Airport Needs New Fuel Tanks

Last updated on Wednesday, January 18, 2012

(BEDFORD) - Robert Daggy, who serves on the Virgil I. Grissom Municipal Airport board, asked the Lawrence County Commissioners to appoint a representative to a newly formed sub-committee.

The committee will look at the airports budget and modernize it so the airport will be able to maintain repairs at the facility. The airport is not allowed to save money for repairs because it is county run.

Commissioner David Flinn will serve on the committee. Daggy hope to have two county council members to also serve.

Daggy says the airport is in dire need of new fuel tanks. The 100 low lead tanks are leaking. Daggy says the tanks are more than 20 years old and need replaced.
