More Money Flows To Airport, Again
(Image via KGNS website)
Henry Cuellar made another announcement of the airport receiving federal funds. The money is to go toward improvements. I'm going to start keeping track of these FAA grants because it seems like it's an all too common occurrence.
From the scant blogging I've done on this subject, there was:
The video interview in 2008 where Cuellar talks about money for the airport.
The post about $11.5 million in 2009 for the airport.
There was the photo op of 2010, with a big $6.9 million check in tow.
A grant in 2011 for $3 million.
And in 2012 I wrote about the list of grants the city gets, FAA monies included.
So it appears that these monies are ours for the taking. Every year, Henry Cuellar and our local officials gather at the airport and take another photo to commemorate another hefty grant. You would think they would get tired of this ritual.
