Local Control Towers to Remain Open Temporarily


By Aimee Burnett

Hailey, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) We have good news for local control towers here in Idaho.

That's because the Transportation Department is keeping 149 control towers at small airports open at least through September 30th.

Included on the list are the control towers in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Lewiston and Hailey.

The transportation secretary has determined there is enough extra money, under a bill passed by Congress last month, to keep the towers open through the end of the budget year.
