PARIS, TX-- The city of Paris has taken the first step to bring several new hangars to the city's airport.
The council unanimously approved a resolution that allows the city to enter into an agreement with TxDOT, to fund construction of a 10-unit T-hangar at Cox Field Airport.
The total project cost is about $1.2 million, but the city is responsible for only 10% of that cost which will be spread over two budget years.
"The engineering 10% is due this upcoming budget year, and the following construction money due in the following budget year after that," said Director of Engineering Shawn Napier.
Napier says the resolution will now have to be approved by the TxDOT Transportation Board. The airport currently has a waiting list of 23 who want to rent hangar space at the airport.
