Hawley announces nearly $500,000 for improvements at GC Airport
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today announced that Genesee County Airport will receive $498,750 for construction of a new storage hanger as part of the Aviation Capital Grant Program. $10 million was awarded to 20 applicants across the state through a competitive application process.
“I am pleased to announce that Genesee County Airport will receive nearly $500,000 for upgrades to its infrastructure,” Hawley said. “The airport is an economic and commercial hub for Western New York and very important to the residents of Genesee County.
"I will support any measure that increases airport safety and allows patrons more efficient and comfortable travel. We still have many upstate infrastructure projects that deserve attention and I will be fighting to make sure we receive our fair share.”
Additional grants will be distributed through the Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization competition after the application and selection process has been completed.
The Aviation Capital Grant Program... now there is a novel idea for spending taxpayer money. But, it's "very important to the residents of Genesee County"... really, how many of us?
How many potholes would $500,000 fix?
Privatize the airport... please!
didn't the local taxpayers foot the bill for a new terminal over there? millions of dollars if i'm not mistaken. ought to take the 500 grand and put it towards something we all use like our infrastructure.
well obsolete means no longer used. from that I get that the bridge is so unsafe that it is closed. maybe we should fix the bridges.
