AIRPORT IN HILLSBORO CLOSED

 

Hillsboro’s Municipal Airport closed May 10th when its owner, Hillsboro Energy, decided that the grass runway landing was unsafe. The airport had been in existence for 42 years but the land was sold to Hillsboro Energy years ago with the company leasing the land to the city of Hillsboro. A replacement landing strip was proposed but not followed through. A proposal was made to build an alternate airstrip or use the airstrip in Litchfield, but there was opposition to both proposals.

 

Hillsboro Energy wants to develop the land for commercial use. According to Hillsboro Mayor Bill Baran, this was a tough decision for the closure of the airport, but the possibility of over 200 jobs for the Hillsboro area from the coal mine would bring in more money to the town and county.
