MONROE - The Monroe Municipal Airport has promising financial totals to round out 2016, thanks to increased jet fuel sales and added amenities previously unavailable to flyers. Tom Miller, chairman of the Airport Board of Management, said the facility's new terminal, completed in 2014, and cab service from the airport to neighboring municipalities has increased airport use. Increased fuel sales have also bolstered the airport in recent years.
