DANBURY, Conn. -- After more than a year of political squabbling, the Danbury Municipal Airport may soon have a restaurant on site for the first time since 2007, according to newstimes.com.
Local officials had long supported a plan to replace the restaurant that burned down in 2007, but concerns over the loss of FAA funding stalled the initiative, the newstimes.com said.
City Council member Jack Knapp and Airport Administrator Paul Estefan recently visited the FAA offices in Massachusetts and received a verbal confirmation to move forward with the plan, newstimes.com reported.
A similar restaurant at the airport in Oxford attracts many amateur pilots out on day trips, the story said.
