TUPELO — One month after requesting and receiving money from the city of Tupelo for taxiway repairs, the Tupelo Regional Airport Authority Board makes another request, this time for $1.2 million.
In a specially called meeting of the Tupelo City Council yesterday, WTVA TV reports airport executive director Joshua Abramson stated their case: The money, paid from the city in increments of approximately $140,000 over 20 years, would go toward capital improvements for the airport.
Abramson says the vast majority of that would go toward a taxiway used primarily by the airport’s largest tenant: Universal Asset Management.
The council agreed to make a decision later this week on whether to approve the request.
