At their meeting Nov. 18, the Chariton City Council approved the resolution for the Airport Capital Improvement Plan (ACIP) for fiscal years 2021-2027 for the Chariton Municipal Airport.

The Chariton Municipal Airport has an Airport Capital Improvement Plan that’s submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on a regular basis. The ACIP allows for the City of Chariton to plan for the future of the airport and it also helps the FAA plan on where they will allocate their future funding resources.

Dave Joens of JEO Consulting was present at the meeting to give an overview of the projects that are planned for the airport until 2027.

There are no airport projects planned for the current fiscal year, FY 2019-20. For fiscal year 2021, there are plans to put in a 5,000-gallon Jet-A aviation fueling system with an automated credit card reader. The total estimated cost of this project is $265,000.
