Hagerstown Regional Airport plans to use $12,298 in leftover revenue from a past passenger facility charge to finish repainting lines on taxiways this year, Airport Director Phil Ridenour said Monday.

At that time, the passenger facility charge was increased from $3 to $4.50 to raise $308,000 to pay for construction of a building to house snow removal equipment, to buy snow removal equipment, and to buy a wheelchair lift device, according to Herald-Mail archives.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The Senate Appropriations Committee has passed spending legislation that includes $19.5 million for taxiway improvements at Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport, U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd's office announced Wednesday. The taxiway project is the last to be funded as part of the $280 million transformation of the Air National Guard facility for the 167th Airlift Wing's new C-5 aircraft mission, according to a news release. The current taxiway was designed for small- and medium-weight aircraft and requires structural upgrades to make it serviceable to accommodate the conversion of the base to the much heavier C-5 aircraft, of which 10 are now stationed there, according to Byrd's office.
