Loebsack Announces $351,000 for Mount Pleasant Municipal AirportWritten by Theresa Rose on April 8, 2015
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that the Mount Pleasant Municipal Airport will receive a $351,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration grant program. The funding will be used for the full rehabilitation of the current Runway 15/33 lighting system that has reached the end of its useful life and requires rehabilitation to enhance safe airfield operations during low visibility conditions.
“Our local airports play a critical role in allowing our communities to grow, as well as fuel additional economic development in the region,” said Loebsack. “I am pleased that the Mount Pleasant Municipal Airport is receiving this competitive grant, which will allow the airport to continue functioning safely and effectively.”
