North Memorial Air Care renews 10 year lease at Redwood Falls Municipal Airport (KRWF), Redwood County, Minnesota

North Memorial Air Care has based its helicopter ambulance services in the Redwood Falls Airport, and agreed to another 10 year lease with the city to stay in its current hangar.

However, the site needs upgrading, and the city council approved improvements at their Tuesday evening meeting.

The previous agreement with North memorial Health Care calls for their current 70 x 80 foot hangar to be leased for $2,333.33 per month, not including taxes or utilities.

The new improvements will be paid in part by North Memorial Health Care, which will add $666.70 per month, bringing the new total to $3,000 per month, or $36,000 per year.

The planned improvements include remodeling the crew quarters, with a base bid of $41,476 from Redwood Building Center Contracting LLC of Redwood Falls.

Supporting quotes include $12,201 for flooring from Brighter Home Store of Redwood Falls.

The council also approved the transfer of $80,000 to the airport project fund from the Redwood Area Hospital to finance the interior and exterior remodel.

A Minnesota Department of Transportation Aeronautic grant will cover up to 80 percent of the exterior remodel (estimated cost $65,527), with a 20 percent local share of $16,381.
