At Mondays meeting the St. Cloud City Council approved a service agreement with Wisconsin Based Mead and Hunt to begin design improvements at St. Cloud Regional Airport.

Mead and Hunt will design and expand hangers as well as bringing the runway taxi lane up to Federal Aviation Administration standards.

Airport Director Bill Towle says he is confident that construction will begin once a grant to MnDOT is approved. Design services will cost $471,000 with the city responsible for five percent or about $23,000.

The airport is looking to add to the 60 hangers on site, and would like to rent and lease the spaces to corporations. Construction is expected to begin by November 2019.
