Monticello needs an airport like I need another tax hike! What a waste of time, effort, and funds if the city continues to pursue such a wasteful task. there is an airport in Champaign/Savoy, one in Decatur, and one in Bloomington. Is it really necessary or is it a pipe dream for some rich people in the area to have more of a playground? I recently heard that some city board members actually went to Washington D.C. to view airport information, site planning, etc. What a joke....did the city of Monticello pay for this trip? If so, what a boondoggle and why would we as citizens allow it to continue. I would vote those people out next election with a quickness.
