FAA awards grant for airport work
The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded a $270,000 grant for the Greenwood-Leflore Airport to widen its taxiway.
Airport manager Bardin Redditt told The Greenwood Commonwealth that the grant requires the airport’s owners, Leflore County and Greenwood, to match 10 percent of the money.
The grant will fund the project’s design and the first phase of construction.
