City expects delays for its new airport

City Manager Steve Howerton suspects economic pressures will force the project to build a new airport in Ennis back several years.
He points to an ailing federal funding source — the Airport and Airway Trust — as the reason for the potential delay.

“I cannot speak for the FAA, but it appears that funding for the Ennis Replacement Airport will not be available in the near term,” Howerton said. “Most funding will have to go to the commercial and passenger airport system.”
