EL DORADO, AR - The city's Economic Development Board has approved funds for an airport hangar project.

On Tuesday, the board heard proposals from the Airport Commission, one concerning a video sign for Industrial Park sign, and a proposal from a local business owner.

The Airport Commission presented a hangar project to take place at Goodwin Field for the board to consider.

They asked the board for $850,000 from the board, which was granted.

This project has been in the works for a year and once completed is expected to cost $1.8 million.

The other proposals brought before the board, including construction on a boat factory, were put on hold until the August 14 meeting.
