Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) On Tuesday the Twin Falls City Council met for their weekly meeting.
And on the agenda were two items that stood out that could have a big impact on the local public.
First was for the beginning process of the renovation and construction for a new terminal out at the magic valley regional airport.
Manager Bill Carberry asked the council to approve an FAA grant in the amount of $380,000 for agricultural services.
And also, approve an agreement for design, bidding and construction services in the amount of $386,000.
“This project is really about curing current deficiencies we have there… get the check baggage out of the lobby and behind the wall. To put restrooms in a new hold area… to expand the hold area. So this is a good project for the community and its all but funded entirely by the FAA, which makes it very good.”
Said Airport Manager, bill Carberry.
the council also gave the green light to the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department to continue construction on the Snake River Canyon Rim Trail.
Totaling almost $89,000, the parks department will now begin the process of extending the pillar falls portion of the trail, about one thousand feet east.
And also 600 feet west on the Knievel Jump Site Trail.
