MOBILE – U.S. Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Alabama today announced the award of funding to the City of Atmore from the United States Department of Transportation for improvements to Atmore Municipal Airport.
The funding, totaling $150,000.00, will be used to fund the acquisition of additional land adjacent to the runway for the purpose of providing a standard safety area and runway protection zone.
