  • Jul. 6, 2011 6:00 p.m.

The village of Masset plans to start construction of a new airport terminal this fall, after hearing that it will be receiving $400,000 from the provincial government for the project. The $400,000 grant through the “Towns for Tomorrow” program was the final piece of funding for the terminal, chief administrator Trevor Jarvis said. The village has been planning the new building for a while and will hold a public meeting to review the design before it advertises the tender, Mr. Jarvis said. Meanwhile, the village is trying to get its airport certified by Transport Canada and will be introducing a “safety management system”. “We’re trying to create an organization-wide safety management plan that has not only our village staff but other users of the airport. all working together with the same goals and objectives, to operate the airport safely,” Mr. Jarvis explained. “We’re hoping to have that done soon.”
