WADSWORTH — The city will use a $314,896 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to help pay for a new 10-year master plan for the Wadsworth Municipal Airport, the Medina Gazette reports.

Wadsworth has hired Crawford, Murphy and Tilly Inc. to develop the plan and conduct a wildlife assessment, the newspaper said. The FAA grant will pay for 90% of the cost.

"It will be about counting deer, groundhogs, and taking a look around to see how plans could affect animals," Flight Services of Wadsworth manager Chad Haller told the Gazette. "We do have a terrible problem with deer and groundhogs. The master plan is a guiding document for any expansions, renovations or maintenance programs that we want to do at the airport over the next 10 to 15 years."
