Sen. Gresham announces grant for Hassell
(NASHVILLE, TN), September 18, 2009 — Local State Senator Dolores Gresham said today she has been informed by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) that a $77,400 grant has been approved for the Hassell Field in Wayne County. The grant is available through TDOT’s Division of Aeronautics.
“Access to airports are essential to the economic development of our county, as well as use for local citizens,” said Gresham. “This grant will assist us in making needed improvements.”
Gresham said the funds from the aeronautics grants will be used for property acquisition and design and construction of obstruction lights. The grant was recommended by the Tennessee Aeronautics Commission.
“I’m very pleased that this grant will enable us to make these improvements,” added Gresham. “We will continue to work to bring our tax dollars back to Wayne County.”
