Buckeye Airport receives $275,000 grant
The Buckeye Municipal Airport was recently awarded a $275,000 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to rehabilitate and replace 17,500 square yards of asphalt and concrete and 11,000 square feet of taxiway at the southern end of the airport.
In addition, the grant money includes a backup generator for the administration building and fueling facility. This will ensure the airport maintains operational readiness of essential services during a power outage.
