Airport project will take flight with first $4M from FAA (09/01/2013)
By Chris Rogers

Winona will receive an initial $4 million in federal funding and roughly $20,000 from the state of Minnesota for improvements to the municipal airport. City officials were waiting eagerly to learn whether appropriations from the U.S. Congress to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) would trickle down to the Winona project. The city already made arrangements to bond for the project without voter approval and paid for initial engineering and other expenses earlier this summer. Now, the three-phased project has the green light.

In interviews with the Winona Post, FAA officials explained that once a multi-phase project receives its first round of funding, the FAA will fund the rest sooner or later. That means that, with this first allotment, the entire airport project should be funded. It is still possible, FAA officials said, that funding delays might cause the project to take longer than its three-year schedule.
