Madison Airport Gets Federal Funding

The Madison County Airport is getting $600 thousand dollars in federal funding. Congressman Andy Barr made that announcement on Wednesday. Last week, Governor Steve Beshear announced the airport and EKU’s aviation program would get 1.1 million in state funds for expansion and improved facilities. The airport is planning for a new hanger for EKU’s aircraft and an expanded parking lot. Madison County, the city of Richmond and the City of Berea are also giving money for the renovation plans.
