GRANT COUNTY: Airport to partner with ORAVI

Yesterday in Grant County Court, Grant County Regional Airport Manager Haley Walker requested the county partner with the Oregon Aviation Institute (ORAVI) in order to apply for a Rural Oregon Airport Relief Program (ROAR) grant. Walker said the Newport, Oregon airport would also be a partner, and if efforts are successful, the groups will look into some type of commercial air service out of John Day. This is just in the preliminary stages; we’ll follow along the grant application process and keep you updated.
