The Cole County Commission voted 2-1 Tuesday to commit funds to an effort to bring a new airline to the Columbia Regional Airport.

Marc Ellinger is the presiding commissioner for the Cole County Commission.

He says the commission voted to give 100-thousand dollars to the escrow fund being used by a group attempting to bring a new airline to the local airport.

“We decided that this is something that was beneficial for Jefferson City, Cole County and the whole region and that it was a good idea for us to participate," Ellinger says.
