Western Nebraska Regional Airport Approves Fire Station

The Western Nebraska Regional Airport board approved the lowest of three bids at just over $1.5 million dollars to Anderson Shaw Construction for a new building as part of the airport’s fire station, reports KNEB.com.

The building is needed to provide federally required space to accommodate the large size of the new firefighting apparatus the airport purchased last year.

This project would be one hundred percent federally funded, with ninety percent coming from the airport’s federal A.I.P. funding, which is the million dollars the airport receives annually based on required boarding numbers.
