Watertown Regional Airport

The Watertown Regional Airport Terminal Project remains on-track.  Mayor Sarah Caron says the original bid came in lower than anticipated at $10.2 million. The federal grant is for $12 million which had allowed them to add another little piece into the project.... 

The mayor says the airport board will be opening those bids on Friday during a special meeting. The council will meet afterward to award the bid.  

The Mayor says the passenger boarding's are doing okay to Denver, but the Chicago flights boarding's are down currently because of COVID.... 

One of the items discussed at the Watertown City council meeting this week was the fuel farm, which is run by the Fixed Based Operator, ATY Aviation.... 

Having additional fuel on-hand means that Watertown will become a regional stop for more flights....  

Officials say they expect at least a minimum of 10% increase in fuel sales in the short term with additional fuel capacity.  They say an even greater increase in sales is expected as the new customer base grows.
