Nearly $100,000 in grant money from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is allowing Neil Armstrong Airport officials to move forward with the beginning stages of a terminal replacement project.
The grant, along with nearly $5,000 in matching local funds from the Auglaize County commissioners, is to help design and plan utilities as well as design drainage rehabilitation for the Neil Armstrong Airport, outside of New Knoxville.
