The Pella Municipal Airport will be undergoing some repair work later this year, following the approval of an engineering contract on the project at last week’s Pella City Council meeting. The contract for the rehabilitation of runway 16/34 at the Pella Airport is with Snyder & Associates in the amount of $42,266.

Coupled with an estimated $190,000 in construction costs, the project is expected to carry an estimated $232,000 price tag. However, entitlement grants from the FAA are expected to cover 95 percent of the expenses for the replacement of approximately 1,850 square yards of pavement at the runway.
