A federal grant application could be on its way to the Huron County commissioners in the upcoming months.
At Tuesday's airport authority meeting, the airport board members approved sending a federal grant pre-application to the Federal Aviation Administration. The federal grant could be worth as much as $400,000, provided the county commissioners approve it and the county can find a 10-percent match.
The county commissioners have not signed grant applications for the past few years, but things could be different in 2013 as new Commissioner Tom Dunlap begins his term in January.
A story about this and other matters discussed at the airport board meeting was published in Wednesday's Reflector.
