FAIRBANKS (AP) -- The city of Delta Junction is in line to receive $1 million in federal funds for maintenance of city facilities and streets, including the existing landfill and the airport.
The money comes through the Office of Economic Adjustment, with another $13 million in federal requests still waiting for approval.
Of the maintenance money, $250,000 is earmarked for airport improvement, $128,000 for buildings and fencing, $100,000 for the airport and $100,000 for the landfill.
Pete Hallgren, city administrator, said the $13 million requested of Title 10 funding is working its way through the system.
Those funds would be used to mitigate the impacts of the National Missile Defense Test Bed Project on the community. Included in the request is money for emergency vehicles and equipment, paving and a new landfill.
The federal defense appropriations bill that includes funding for missile defense passed the Senate and went on to a conference committee last week.
