TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Board of Directors has approved $120,000 to help close a budget gap at the Texarkana Regional Airport.

Airport officials say the funding will close about half of the projected $266,000 shortfall for next year, and Texas-side officials have chipped in the remainder. Airport Director Stephen Luebbert said the facility was self-sustaining up until recently because of fewer military flights heading to the nearby Red River Army Depot in Bowie County, Texas.

The Texarkana Gazette reported that the board voted Monday to appropriate $120,700 for the airport. In September, city leaders in Texarkana, Texas, agreed to give $146,000 to the airport, which serves both cities.
