Big decisions are ahead of the Menominee County Board after last night’s board meeting when commissioner Larry Schei addressed the board with financial documentation and what the future direction of the airport really means for the tax payers in the community.

Schei says, once they lost their sponsorship all grandfathering for the airport through the F-A-A and M-DOT AERO was lost.
