Murray Receives Airport Grant

Jul 3, 2013

Murray’s Kyle-Oakley Field Airport has been awarded a $128,000 Federal Aviation Administration grant for updating the airport’s master plan. Matching grants from within the state bring the total money for the project to more than $140,000. Kyle-Oakley Field Airport Manager Johnny Parker says the master plan is a road map for development of the airport, required by the FAA every five to 10 years.  Airport officials will have to be contracted with an engineering firm for the planning work.
