Council approves renovation work for Wharton Regional Airport (KARM), Texas

The Wharton City Council on Monday gave the go ahead for renovation work for Wharton Regional Airport.

 The council approved an agreement between the city and BLS Construction of El Campo in the amount of $14,900 for the work. Of that amount, half of the costs for hangar improvements can be included in the 2012 Routine Airport Maintenance Program (RAMP) for reimbursement, City Manager Andres Garza Jr. said in a report to council members.

“Three hangars will be rehabilitated and the terminal building in this project,” Airport Manager David Allen told council members.

The project includes removing faded tin and replacing it with new tin on the three hangers. On the terminal building, the project includes removing wall tin and replacing it with panels.

Allen said he wanted to get the project started as soon as possible so it could be completed by Aug. 31. He also told council members that things were going well at the airport.

“All of the hangars are rented,” Allen said. “The airport is doing well.”
