PORTALES, N.M. (KRQE) – Federal money has been granted to the Portales Municipal Airport to build a fuel tank.
The airport got a grant of nearly $432,000 to build a 12,000-gallon fuel tank.
Officials said with new tanks, the airport will be able to sell fuel. With that extra money, they hope to become financially self-sustainable.
The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration.
