During the Oct. 6 meeting of the Hannibal City Council, approval was given to a $17,540 change order pertaining to the taxiway/ramp expansion project at Hannibal Regional Airport. During the Oct. 7 Airport Advisory Board meeting it was announced that much money will not be needed after all.

Reportedly a change order in the amount of $17,540 was needed to relocate some water lines. Because MoDOT Aviation would reimburse the city 90 percent of the cost of the project through grant funding, the city's 10 percent share of the cost would have amounted to $1,754.

During the October Airport Advisory Board meeting, John Noble of Jviation, the city's airportengineer, revealed that 50 feet of pipe wound up being where it was supposed to be. While a different pipe fitting had to be purchased, no pipe had to be moved, thus a change order savings.

Aside from some final concrete painting, the taxiway/ramp expansion project at the airport is now complete.
