Cole County weighs contribution for airport
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Cole County Presiding Commissioner Marc Ellinger is asking his fellow commissioners to join other business and government entities in giving financial support to the Columbia Regional Airport to help attract a new airline to the area.
At Tuesday’s County Commission meeting, Ellinger said he’d like the county to contribute $100,000 in reserve funds because he sees this as an economic development issue.
Columbia officials reported Sunday they had reached their goal of $3 million.
