No runway expansion at Saratoga Co. airport

Posted Monday, June 9th 2014 @ 5pm

Before an overflow crowd, the Saratoga County Buildings and Grounds committee rejects the plan to extend the runway at the Saratoga County Airport.

Proponents were looking for a 300 foot extension that would bring the facility's main runway to 5,000 feet.

People who against the extension said it would displace some families and a hospice that  eases a building from the county on Rowland Street.
