This week, we wanted to share with you the upgrades that are being installed at the Charlo regional airport.
Currently, we are in the process of replacing our runway lights. This upgrade is one of many that have happened at our airport since 2020. These upgrades were divided into two phases, the first phase having been complete at the end of 2021. The runway lights are a part of the second phase of the electrical system rehabilitation.
In May 2021, we shared the announcement regarding the funding our airport received from the government of Canada for the completion of these two electrical system rehabilitation phases. Here is an excerpt from that announcement:
“A contribution of $567 600.00 for the first phase of the electrical system rehabilitation, which began in June 2020 is ongoing until the end of 2021. The second phase of the electrical system rehabilitation will receive a contribution of $1 543 300.00 during the years 2021-2023. Continuing in the years 2021-2023, a contribution of $467 500.00 will be received for the wildlife fence replacement.”
