City of Mansfield Airport Committee Chairman, Don Bryant, applauded the efforts of U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown today and welcomed the announcement of an award for $6.5 million dollars in federal funding for Mansfield's Lahm Airport.
"This was the result of Airport Manager Mark Daugherty, City Engineer Bob Bianchi, and several members of the Mansfield Airport Commission." Bryant stated.
"I've been made aware of several issues on airport property since becoming chairman in January. The one thing that I find needing immediate attention other than meeting the Federal Aviation Administration standards on signage, are the repairs needed for our runway."
Mansfield Lahm Airport receives mostly commercial traffic, but Bryant wants to see operations expand and says he hopes "more private companies will consider developing business at Lahm Airport in the near future."
