Mitch Garner told Allen County commissioners Tuesday an additional hangar or two is needed at the county’s airport southeast of Iola.
“All the hangar space is rented,” holding about 15 airplanes, and several owners are interested in having the protection of hangar space for their planes, said Garner, whose department, Public Works, oversees airport operations. Garner was airport director before taking Public Works reins nearly a year ago.
“Sounds good to me,” said Commission Chairman Jerry Daniels. “If we want to keep the airport viable, we have to meet needs.”
