Grants Approved to Benefit Gillette Airport

(Gillette, Wyo.) The Gillette-Campbell County Airport applied to the commissioners this morning for a $5000 grant, and it was unanimously approved by the board. The money will help put on an airport open house some time this summer. They hope to feature the new shuttle service that will be available to passengers. Last year's air show drew a huge crowd. Twice as many people turned up when they were only expecting about 2500 to attend. The airport hopes to repeat that success this year. Skywest Airlines also asked for an extension on their revenue agreement, through June of 2017. It was approved by the board, contingent upon approval from the Wyoming Department of Transportation's Aeronautics division. #county17 #news -- *Brenda Kirk* Community Maven for | 614.940.7121 Twitter | Instagram | Facebook PitchEngine™ | *Connecting Communities* | Twitter | Facebook
