WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Bellefontaine Regional Airport has been awarded $150,000 by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to purchase snow removal equipment, including a snow removal dump truck with plow and spreader attachments.

“This is great news for Logan County,” Brown said. “These improvements will enhance the capacity and safety at Bellefontaine Regional Airport during adverse weather conditions. These federal dollars will go a long way in sustaining travel in and out of the airport for area residents and businesses.”
