Old airport terminal is now steps from being torn down


WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council approved motions Monday declaring the old airport terminal unsafe and requesting the Federal Aviation Administration to release the decades-old terminal to the city so it can be demolished.

The motions were based on a consultant's analysis that showed the old terminal had extensive mold and structural problems that city staff estimated would cost between $600,000 and $1.3 million to bring up to code.
