Total revenues still are at 102 percent of budget while expenditures have been kept at an 85 percentage level.

On Wednesday the board voted to approve their 2017 budget. Projects on the horizon for the fiscal 2017 budget year include improvements to the parking ramp, taxi way improvements, and two new passenger loading bridges.
