City Council members in Chadron, Neb., have rejected a $184,000 FAA grant for Chadron Municipal Airport due to a dispute over problems associated with recently installed aviation fuel tanks. The FAA grant would have been contingent on hiring Olssen and Associates, who installed the tanks, to revise and update the 15-year-old airport layout plan, and without that plan, the airport will not be eligible for federal assistance, but the city may be in litigation with Olssen over the fuel tank issue.
