The Macon County Airport Authority board held its monthly meeting Tuesday afternoon. Erik Rysdon was in attendance to provide updates to the board about a variety of issues. Rysdon, a project manager at W.K. Dickson, an engineering, planning, and design firm out of Charlotte, is leading the runway widening project. The contract was recently awarded to Reeves Construction. He is also the board's go-to when other issues arise or new projects come about.
As far as the widening project is concerned, Rysdon told the board that the Division of Aviation (DOA) had not gotten back to him about approval as of yet, but that it should be coming soon.
