The Osage Beach Board of Aldermen has approved for Nick Edelman to go ahead and further investigate a matter that will combine airport funding. Right now there are 2 airports that each receives $150,000 in funds from the federal government allocated my MODOT aviation. The purpose Edelman says is for allocating the money as needed and not doing a major project in sections.
This would allow the two airports to come together with a total of $300,000 in one pot and the money be allocated where it is needed. The money does not have to be paid back but it does have to be used or it will be taken back. Edelman will investigate further and acknowledges that Osage Beach will be the first in Missouri to do this, there is precedence in Michigan.
