The Searcy Airport Commission was hoping last week to be awarded $1.1 million in “discretionary” funding from the Federal Aviation Administration in order to replace its taxiway lighting.

“As you all are aware there is discretionary revenue that sometimes if an airport doesn’t spend all of their money, they will reallocate that money to airports that want it,” Searcy Municipal Airport Manager Roger Pearson said. “We’ve made it known, as you all know, that we want it and we have asked for some time now, ‘Please, keep us in mind. Please keep us in mind.’”
