Aviation board considers purchasing nearby land

Follow The Republic:

COLUMBUS, Ind. - The city’s Board of Aviation Commissioners is willing to spend up to $500,000 to buy land near the end of one of its airport runways.

The purchase would help Columbus Municipal Airport keep the 35-acre property clear of development that could potentially interfere with flights, airport director Brian Payne said.

The $500,000 figure for the land is what owner Centra Credit Union representatives believe it’s worth, aviation board president Caleb Tennis said.
