Just as Washington’s airport is going to see upgrades in the near future, Fairfield’s airport will also receive funds to update its equipment. Congressman Dave Loebsack says it is one of five airports in his district to receive the funds. He says $76,000 will go to purchasing new snow removal equipment that will increase the useful life of the equipment and allow it to be maintained and ready for use during any inclement weather. Loebsack says making sure area airports have the tools necessary to ensure Iowans can travel safely is a top priority.
Mt. Pleasant’s airport will also see funds to make some general improvements.
