$3.5 Million Award for Erie and Ottawa County Airports
In late August, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D-OH-09) released the following statement after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced a series of grants totaling $3,541,777 for the Put-in-Bay Airport and the Middle Bass Island Airport. The grants were made available to regional airports due to the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act, supported by Rep. Kaptur, and signed by President Biden on March 11, 2021.
“Our regional airports play a vital role in supporting the local economy and connecting our communities,” said Rep. Kaptur. “I am excited to see the American Rescue Plan living up to its promise, and delivering the resources Northern Ohio needs.”
The announced FAA grants include:
- $147,381 for the Put-in-Bay Airport to reconstruct a terminal building.
- $2,888,618 for the Middle Bass Island Airport to rehabilitate an apron, runway, and taxiway.
- $359,605 for the Kelleys Island Land Field Airport to conduct an environmental assessment.
- $146,173 for the Kelleys Island Land Field Airport to rehabilitate a runway and reconstruct lighting.
Return of the Haunted Put-in-Bay Bar Crawl
Plan for an evening of thrills and chills as William G. Krejci and Viktoria Zakharova, hosts of the Haunted Put-in-Bay Ghost Walk, lead guests on a spooky lantern-guided bar crawl through downtown Put-in-Bay on Saturday, October 16th. Hear about the haunted history of such places as The Park Hotel, Topsy Turvey’s, and Hooligan’s, all while enjoying refreshing adult beverages. Other locations will also be visited along the way.
The whole thing steps off at 7 p.m. at the Boardwalk Dock, and runs until around 9:30 p.m. This event is open to anyone age 21 years or older and is free. Attendees are responsible for purchasing their own drinks. Halloween costumes are highly encouraged.
