The Pulaski County Commissioners and the county council will soon be discussing the possibility of purchasing one-third ownership of the Pulaski County Airport after a representative for the town of Winamac approached the commissioners and explained the town is looking to divest their interest in the airport.
The county is currently two-thirds owners of the airport, and if officials decide to proceed with acquiring the town’s ownership, they would become full owners. However, the town’s representative told the commissioners that he is looking for thoughts and ideas as well.
The town currently shares one-third of the cost of maintaining and operating the airport, which is typically between $15,000 and $30,000 a year. Commissioner Larry Brady said he would like to table the discussion and bring it up at a joint meeting between the commissioners and the council.
