Today I’d like to talk about infrastructure. While that may commonly conjure images of roads or water systems, I specifically want to discuss one of our critical Marquette County infrastructure assets which have provided decades of economic advancement and opportunity: Sawyer International Airport.
Right now, it may feel more common to read headlines about the challenges the airport is facing. Airports across the nation, especially smaller airports, are all experiencing cutbacks in flights and increased ticket costs due to pilot shortages and a quicker-than-expected return to pre-pandemic air travel demand.
