The City Council of Jefferson City unanimously approved six ordinances Monday that set the framework for $6.2 million in renovations to the city's airport.

The city will secure $6.1 million in funding for a runway and taxiway improvement project through the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission and will match 6 percent of the total cost, approximately $400 thousand, through sales tax revenues.
