New agreement would fund expansion at Clark Regional Airport

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new agreement has been reached in the fight for funding an expansion at Clark Regional Airport.

Jeffersonville, Clarksville, Clark County and the Ogle Foundation will all put money into the airport fund. 

Clark Regional needs to raise $750,000 to secure a $10 million federal grant to add a new runway. 

Mayor Mike More vetoed Jeffersonville's initial $400,000 contribution saying the money came from funds designated for widening Holmans Lane.

The new deal reached last night allows both projects to move forward.
