Agreement reached on repayment for land at old airport


WILLMAR -- The city of Willmar and the state of Minnesota have reached an agreement for the city to repay state money used to acquire about 700 acres of land for the old airport.

State law requires a municipality to repay the State Airports Fund if any airport land acquired with state money ceases to be used for aviation purposes. The city opened the new airport on Sept. 5, 2006, and the old airport was closed and is being developed by the city into an industrial park.
