County Signs Grant Agreement For Johnson County Airport (KBYG) Wildlife Fence

Johnson County's Commissioners voted to allow Chairman Bill Niovotny to sign a grant agreement that will help fund the construction of a fence at the county airport designed to keep wildlife from wandering onto runways and colliding with or creating a hazard for aircraft.

The grant amount was just under $366,000 and came from the US Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration.

The commissioners discussed the grant and the agreement before voting to accept it.

The county accepted a separate Federal grant earlier this year for just over $173,000 for the fence project.

The funding for the project will be 90% Federal dollars and 10% local county match, according to earlier discussions on the project.

Also announced was that Hout Fencing of Worland had the winning bid of roughly $247,000 and was awarded the perimeter fencing project at a recent Airport Board meeting.
