Marshall County Airport getting funds for fuel farm
Senators Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker last week announced the U.S. Department of Transportation has released $4,495,260 in funding for airports across the state of Mississippi.
The Marshall County Airport will receive $71,918 for the construction of a fuel farm. The new fuel farm will generate additional revenue for the airport.
Senator Cochran said, “Infrastructure improvements to our state’s airports will provide needed enhancements to their operations, help stimulate the local economy through construction, and will hopefully spur greater incentive for tourism. I am pleased to hear federal funding will be provided to so many regions of our state.”
Senator Wicker said, “These federal dollars will provide for needed airport infrastructure improvements across Mississippi. In addition to increasing efficiency, safety, and security at our airports, these infrastructure projects will provide an economic boost in communities across the state.”
