Proposed Airport Near Sioux Center, Orange City Receives $1.18 Million Grant
Date posted - August 31, 2012
Senator Tom Harkin says that the federal government will kick in $1,187,563 to buy the land near Maurice needed to construct the airport, which has been in the planning stages for more than ten years. The proposed new airport would have longer runways than the current airports in Orange City and north of Sioux Center. The longer runways would better serve business aircraft. After it’s built, the towns would close their current airports.
Senator Harkin says the new airport would help the Sioux County economy continue to expand and add quality jobs. The Senator sits on the transportation appropriations subcommittee.
