Stonewall Co. landowner negotiates with Commissioners

News Staff's picture

In a slow negotiation process that has stretched on for over a year regarding the construction of a new hangar at the county’s airport, the Stonewall County Commissioners are no closer to reaching a solution after Monday morning’s meeting than they were last July.

Last year, landowner Brian Snodgrass contacted the Stonewall County Court, requesting access to the county-owned airport from his neighboring property. Snodgrass owns the land to the north and east of the airport. Land west is farmed and owned by another individual.

The Airport has a single entrance via County Rd. 204, a dirt road about a mile northeast of Aspermont. The 80 acres of land the airport sits on was once part of Snodgrass’ estate before the county purchased it from the previous owner in 1983 for $32,000. The airport was officially activated in 1986 and is currently open to the public for general aviation.
