Airport Commission sets
goals for new year

The Walnut Ridge Regional Airport Commission discussed several improvement opportunities at Monday night's meeting. In addition to physical improvements, such as clean ups, the commission also discussed financial goals.

Cavenaugh said the revenue from the farmland could then be used for matching grants for improvements, which have previously been paid for through bank loans.
