Chillicothe Airport expansion

Expansion of the Chillicothe airport was one of the main items discussed at this week's Chillicothe City Council meeting.

The Council approved an agreement with the Missouri Department of Transportation to purchase an easement on land at the airport. Chillicothe City Manager Ike Holland says they plans to extend the length of the runway at the airport to accommodate for larger planes coming in and out of Chillicothe.
