The Federal Aviation Administration Award will fund the OC Municipal Airport's property purchase and tree removal from that property. 

(Aug. 2, 2019) The Ocean City Municipal Airport has been awarded a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration Awards to remove trees from the runway approaches.

According to airport manager Jamie Giandomencio, the grant of $173,578  will reimburse the city for the purchase of the property the trees were on and the efforts to cut down the trees. The six-acre property, purchased in fall of 2018, is west of the airport. The property was purchased in order for the airport to remove the trees as they encroached closer to the runway.
