SHERMAN, TEXAS -- Sherman City Council has unanimously voted to disband the Sherman Municipal Airport Advisory Board.
Sherman Mayor Bill Magers says the board has not been functioning for more than a year.
He also says that the council hasn't been following their advice to subsidize fuel prices and use government funds to build hangars.
Magers says this doesn't mean they're closing the airport; only the taxpayers can vote to do that.
Magers says in about three years, voters will have a big decision to make about the airport.
"We can spend $500,000 to a million dollars to maintain the runway and repair it on the hook with federal dollars, or we can pay off the note and go a different route," Magers said.
Magers adds that the Sherman airport is a great asset, but voters will have to decide how they want to spend their tax dollars.
