Federal funds likely for county airport runway
GEORGETOWN — During his final meeting before retirement, Sussex County County Administrator David Baker presented county council with some good news. He told council Dec. 13 transportation officials could provide partial funding to help the county reach its goal of extending the county's airport runway to 6,000 feet.
Baker has been working with county staff and state and federal officials for months to develop a funding plan for the nearly $25 million project at the Georgetown airport.
