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.
