CAMILLA, Ga. (WALB) - Camilla’s airport is getting two brand new hangars, which could bring new industries to the town and more job opportunities to the airport.

The City Council has been working on the $140,000 project since February.

Camilla City Council said the Georgia Department of Transportation and The Federal Aviation Administration will be paying for the other hangar, which means it will not cost the local taxpayers.

The open space near the nearly completed hangar will be where the free hangar will be placed.

City Manager Steve Sykes details how this will benefit the city.

“This gives us an extra resource to attract and recruit existing business, to grow or new business to locate here,” said Sykes.
