Moultrie airport receives grant to improve runway

Posted: Updated:

Planes flying into Moultrie Municipal Airport will soon have a smoother landing.

The City Council approved a grant for the Airport Authority to help re-surface part of the main runway.

It hasn't been updated since the nineties. The project will include sealing up cracks in the runway. 

"You have more and more pilots start to complain about it. I noticed it as a pilot flying in and out of here. We don't want to become unsafe. When we become unsafe no planes want to come in here, no business come in here," said Alan Mathis. President of EOA.

The project will cost a little over $500,000.
