|FAA gives Monroe $1 million for airport project|
The city of Monroe secured another $1 million in federal funding for the new terminal project at the Monroe Regional Airport.
U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, and Mayor Jamie Mayo announced Wednesday that the city was awarded a $1,006,966 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for the terminal project.
The funding will be used in the designing process to replace the 40-year-old terminal.
Mayo, along with representatives from the Greater Ouachita Port, Monroe Chamber of Commerce and University of Louisiana-Monroe are in Washington, D.C., beginning Wednesday, for a three-day lobbying trip.
In a previous interview with The Ouachita Citizen, Mayo said the airport terminal project will remain the focus among city officials, as they hope to secure $7 million for the project this year.
Mayo hopes to have the $30-million terminal completed by 2010.
"It is outstanding news to learn that this project has been awarded a $1-million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration," Mayo said. "We thank the members of our federal delegation for all of the hard work and support they continue to show as we move this project forward."
He said the 10-person delegation that's in Washington will continue to meet with federal representatives to lobby for support for several projects to "improve our local infrastructure, education and spur additional economic development."
Alexander has repeatedly said the Monroe Regional Airport terminal is one of the top projects for the region. He said the state's congressional delegation will continue to work to secure additional funding to complete the project.
"Enhancing and strengthening the Monroe Regional Airport in order to achieve the full economic benefits this airport can bring to the region is a goal we have shared and worked toward together for some time, and this funding from the Department of Transportation will give the Monroe airport the means to begin the much-anticipated process of building a new terminal," Alexander said.
