By a 13-4 vote, Taylor County Board Supervisors recently petitioned the state for financial help in expanding the Taylor County Airport.

The vote came following a public hearing several days earlier in which the proposed airport expansion was both opposed and supported.

Previously, he board had approved a six-year airport improvement plan that would, among other things, call for the lengthening of the existing north/south runway and the development of a new paved east/west runway.

At the present time, the east/west runway is only a grass strip unable to handle anything but the smallest aircraft. In order to develop the east/west runway, however, a portion of Oriole Drive between Airport Road and Pine Avenue in the Town of Deer Creek would have to be closed, and the proposal is opposed by many town residents.
