Busselton seeks wa govt support for jetty revamp
Dakota County Public Utility Commissioner David Closser said a $2 million project to transform the old Staunton Ferry terminal could include a new runway.
“We have a number of aviation-related improvements that we’re trying to get through,” Closser said on Tuesday.
The pilot project would include constructing a new runway along the South Dakota border.
The terminal would be an important part of the state’s long-term aviation infrastructure that would also include the Staunton Center Airport and a new, 2.9-mile runway running to North Dakota, Closser said.
One option is building a runway, he said, but the Staunton Fer바카라ry terminal would still need the aid of the Federal Aviation Administration, which could mean another five years of study.
Another proposal would use federal funds to upgrade and extend the terminal’s parking lot. The airport is the state’s only dedicated runway.
If the federal government funds the project, “It would be very difficult because the parking lot does not meet the physical capabilities of it,” Closser said.
The airport would have to make a difficult call about whether to build in that area, said Peter Reilke, executive director of the North Dakota chapter of the United States Marine Transportation Association.
“We’re not going to put a runway in Staunton,” Reilke said. “We’re not moving there.”
He believes the airport could go forward but said he is not sure why the project would require federal money.
The FAA would have to approve the project, which could take years. “I doubt it’s feasible,” Reilke said.
Some airport staff and area officials believe the new runway is the best option.
“I’m confident it’s a good project and I’m confident it’s feasible,” said Dave Loeser, director of aviation programs and operations at the State Board of Aviation Commissioners, which oversees the county.
Alderwoman Pam Dabowak said at the county meeting on Tuesday the county has received a lot of support for the project. “There’s been a lot of support,” she s예스 카지노aid, “and so we feel quite 슬롯 머신confident.”
However, she did not know how much the airport would pay for the project. Closser said they are seeking funds from the Department of Transportation’s airport division, which oversees airport construction.
“We’re expecting a fair amount,” Closser said,
