Philip Municipal Airport to receive $50,000 in federal funding for environmental impact study

The Philip Municipal Airport will receive a $50,000 federal grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for airport enhancements.

This grant will provide federal funds to study potential environmental impacts of a purposed land acquisition at the Philip Municipal Airport. The environmental impact study will involve federal and state authorities, and environmental experts, including archeologists. If possible, the purchase of areas at each end of the airport will be done, not to increase the length of the runway, but to expand the clear zone.
