(BONHAM, TEXAS) -- Jones Field in Bonham is set to receive some nice improvements thanks to a $40,000 grant just approved by city council.

The routine airport maintenance program or RAMP is a TXDOT grant that will provide money for needed runway maintenance, including sealing cracks on the runway.

$18,000 will also go toward a new fuel pump and new paint to improve runway safety and hangars.

The airport is home to 47 private planes and a commercial plane for spraying agriculture.

Airport officials say they're excited about the grant and the chance to improve the airport and attract new business.
