Aviation commission approves contract changes

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Dougherty Aviation Commission Friday night approved changes to the contract for the final phase of the airport improvement project.     

The main portion of the work will be demolishing the old terminal. The initial bids came in over budget, so the commission approved taking out some things in the original plan.     

The city commission must sign off on the changes.  

"The folks that travel out of here it's very inconvenient, the way we have things set up and we understand that...but we're hoping that we will soon be able to recommend a contractor and if we get that approved then we can maybe move forward," said Yvette Aehle.       

Airport officials hope to begin demolition work in January.
