Airport seeks funding for repaving project
By Christen Coulon
McNairy County’s Robert Sibley Airport is hoping to begin a long overdue airport repaving project sometime in the near future. The project’s cost is estimated at $1.3 million by the engineering firm Askew Hargraves Harcourt and Associates, Inc.
There is state and federal money available to cover 90 percent of the cost and the remaining $130,000 of the funding will have to be matched locally.
