Montgomery County to Fund New Airport Terminal

By Chris Taylor

Clarksville, TN – Montgomery County, Tennessee Commissioners yesterday approved over a million dollars to fund construction of a new terminal at its local airport, but with stipulations. The Airport Authority must brief commissioners with quarterly capital projects reports and the county will hold onto the appropriation until it is needed and will require invoices when money is withdrawn. Commissioners voted 20 to 1 to approve the appropriation. The dissenting vote was cast by District 5 Commissioner Robert Gibbs. He tells the Clarksville Leaf Chronicle he doesn't think spending extra money in this economy is a good idea.
