Lethbridge Airport Gets Federal Funding For New Snowplow Truck

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The federal government is providing almost 188-thousand dollars for a new slowplow truck at Lethbridge Airport.

 

It will replace the old 1980 model they have now which is nearing the end of it's life.

 

The funding comes through the Airports Capital Assistance Program. Through ACAP, the airport has received more than $8.8-million for 9-projects, including today's announcement . Earlier this year, the airport got funding to replace the runway condition reporting system and a snow blower.

 

County Reeve Lorne Hickey hopes this investment will help attract new airlines to Lethbridge. He says discussions with WestJet are ongoing and they expect their next announcement will probably be towards the end of January.
