Gibbs Announces $2.8 Million FAA Grant for Knox County Airport

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congressman Bob Gibbs announced the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded $2,842,060 to the Knox County Regional Airport for improvements and rehabilitation of the airport's runway.

Congressman Gibbs released the following statement:

'As Ohio's economy grows and expansion continues into Central Ohio's rural communities, easy access to assets such as airports makes those communities more attractive to prospective businesses. Knox County Regional Airport's runway was in need of major rehabilitation in order to remain competitive for economic development opportunities. I applaud the FAA in recognizing the value the airport adds to Knox County.'
