MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) — A two-year project to make improvements at the Morristown Regional Airport has been completed.
The work will improve pilots' ability to fuel and allow the city's airport commission to move ahead and finalize the contract with its chosen fixed base operator.
Assistant City Administrator Buddy Fielder told The Citizen-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1oy06Ys ) the work moved aviation gas and jet fuel tanks above ground.
Fielder says the bulk of the funding came from state and federal grants.
While the local match varied from grant to grant, the average local match was about 15 percent of total cost of the project, between $1.1 million and $1.2 million.
