Shelby Announces $76,417 for Brewton Municipal Airport

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation has awarded $76,417 to the Brewton Municipal Airport to construct a hangar and a fuel farm.

“Expanding the infrastructure at the Brewton Municipal Airport will allow the airport to further meet the needs of the growing community,” said Shelby.” Currently, the hangars at Brewton Municipal Airport are fully occupied and there is a waiting list to accommodate additional aircraft. This funding will allow the airport to construct an additional hangar to accommodate the expanding airport.  Additionally, the funding will be used to update the airport’s existing fueling with a new 12,000 gallon fuel tank, a fuel dispensing system and a spill containment area.”
