    Just wondering-It has been widely published that a lot of airports from the largest to even the smallest received money given to the airline industry as part of one of the covid-19 relief packages. How much did Winsted Airport get out of this and if they did why is it kept such a secret? I would like to hear from the airport commission and/or the Winsted city council on this matter.

    The CARES Act provided $20,000 to the City of Winsted to cover airport operations costs. The City is planning on using the $20,000 to offset the costs of the fueling station replacement project that will still require additional general fund tax dollars due to the $45,000 estimated project costs. These funds and their use are no secret it was publicly discussed at a Council and Airport Commission meeting.
