Start Supplemental Information
GDY is a small 89-acre non-towered, general aviation airport, that is listed in the national plan of integrated airport systems. It has been owned and operated by the town of Grundy since 1963. Although the town of Grundy has been the recipient of grant funding from the FAA in the past, the FAA recognizes that the town is no longer contractually obligated by these previous grant agreements to continue operating GDY as an airport. Section 46319 of Title 49 of the United States Code [49 U.S.C. 46319] provides that a public agency (as defined in 49 U.S.C. 47102) may not permanently close an airport listed in the national plan of integrated airport systems under 49 U.S.C. 47103 without providing written notice to the Administrator of the FAA at least 30 days before the date of the closure. The FAA recognizes the letter received September 4, 2019 from the town of Grundy meets that requirement. The FAA is publishing the town of Grundy's notice of permanent closure of Grundy Municipal Airport in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 46319(b).
