The Lake Wales City Commission gave City Manager Ken Fields permission to execute an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for $218,189 for the lake Wales Airport rehabilitation at the commission meeting Tuesday night.

In 2013, the commission gave permission to the city for providing funding for construction of the airfield improvements bringing the total share of the project cost for FDOT to the figure. The city hopes to receive additional funds from the FAA, who is sharing in the cost of the improvements, so construction can begin by July 1.
