That the Grant Offer referred to is incor- <br /> porated -herein by reference and a copy shall be filed in <br /> the office of the Clerk. <br /> Mr. Wayne Reynolds, representing Blue Ridge Aircraft, said the <br /> apron is in dire need of repair and, if another winter goes by as <br /> it is, it will become a safety hazard. <br /> Mr. Bange explained that this is the final result in Council ' s <br /> effort to obtain FAA and State funds to improve some of the facili- <br /> ties that are deteriorating. The original figure was around $80, 000 <br /> Town cost. With this grant and additional money from the State Cor- <br /> poration Commission, the Town' s share will be $31 , 995, which has al- <br /> ready been over-appropriated. Mr. Herrell emphasized the fact that <br /> none of this money is coming from the taxpayer' s pocket, it comes <br /> from rental of the airport over the past years. Mayor Newman said <br /> it is quite obvious that no money has been spent on the airport. <br />
