A grant in the amount of $35,143.03 had been awarded by the New Jersey Transportation Division of Multimodal Services’ Airport Improvement Program for replacement of the ceilometer, which is used for weather monitoring for landing and takeoff, and REIL (Runway End Identifier Lights) Unit, which are used in airport navigation.
