WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand have announced nearly $750,000 in federal funding for Chautauqua County/Jamestown Airport.
The funding was allocated through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Chautauqua County Legislature already approved the funding during its August voting session.

The total cost of the project is just over $850,000 and the county’s share of the project totals just over $21,000.
