Study: Two airports bring about $11 million a year
Despite its deficit budget, Walgreen Field still a big asset, site officials say
STERLING – Whiteside County Airport in Rock Falls and Dixon Municipal Airport contribute about $11 million a year to the local economy, according to an Illinois Department of Transportation study.
Dixon’s Charles R. Walgreen Field creates 59 jobs, while Whiteside County’s Joseph H. Bittorf Field creates 57 jobs, including those created by capital improvement projects and visitor spending, the study says.
Each also brings in about $5.5 million in economic activity, the study said.
