The Board of County Commissioners last week gave themselves a Sept. 29 deadline on making a decision on whether to proceed with a $74 million expansion of Carroll County Regional Airport. The expansion plan has been studied for years, and would include extending the runway from its present length of 5,100 feet to 6,400 feet to accommodate larger aircraft.
