Emmett celebrates end of runway project
Local economic development officials joined pilots and community leaders Wednesday (Oct. 14) in Emmett to celebrate completion of a runway reconstruction project at Chuck Sawyer Field, the city's airport.
The $600,000 project is a culmination of about five years of work that has significantly improved the airport as an economic centerpiece for the community.
JV DeThomas, administrator of ITD's Division of Aeronautics, joined Emmett resident Lt. Gov. Brad Little, to cut the ceremonial ribbon. The widow of Chuck Sawyer (for whom the field is named) helped helped celebrate the project's completion.
