The state awards an $800,000 grant to construct a new fueling facility at the Oneonta Municipal Airport. The funding is part of a $23.6 million investment in 31 airports statewide to support safety enhancements, modernization of facilities, operational improvements and local business development. Through this initiative upstate airports will continue to improve their facilities to better serve the public, while retaining and creating well-paying aeronautical jobs. The State DOT will immediately begin working with airport project sponsors to expedite the delivery of these improvements.
