County Commissioners to Take Action on Airport Budget Amendment Request

SWEETWATER COUNTY– The Sweetwater County Commissioners will meet Tuesday, October 16, at 8:30 am at the Sweetwater County Courthouse Commissioners Chambers.

Airport Budget Amendment Request for Modernization Project

The commissioners will take action on a budget amendment request from the Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport. The airport is asking the county for an additional $711,111 for the design of the Commercial Terminal Modernization Project.

The county commissioners tabled this resolution at the September 18 meeting, as they said they felt “very uncomfortable” with the request.

Commissioner Don Van Matre told Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport director Devon Brubaker that he did not want the request to fail, so the best they could do was delay the decision.
