Airport receives CARES funds
The Wilbarger County Airport received $816,840 in Coronavirus Aid, Relieve and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding from the Texas Transportation Commission.
The funds were awarded during the July commission meeting.
CARES Act dollars are provided to extend some relief to municipalities, organizations, and individuals that were economically affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding for the Wilbarger County airport will help support pavement improvements. The county expects to put the project up for bids later this summer or early fall.
