Legislature Accepts State Airport Fund Agreement

Tuesday, April 6, 2010
The Legislature, by unanimous vote after little discussion, accepted, through a supplemental grant agreement, a nearly $32,000 grant from the New York State Department of Transportation, as half of the non-federal contribution toward six projects at Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport. (Legislator Jim Dennis was excused.) The Federal Aviation Administration supports 95% of the total project costs, with the other half of the non-federal share funded through airlines fees. Funded projects include preparation of the airport's "Green" Master Plan, purchase of three pieces of equipment, obstruction removal, and engineering design for a sand storage building.
