Pike County Commercial Airline Service Tabled

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...At the Pike County Fiscal Court meeting Monday, plans for commercial airline service in Pike County was tabled. The Pike County Airport Board wants to use multi-county coal severance funds to further the project, but some county government officials say more time is needed to decide if that is the best option. Pike County Judge Executive Wayne T. Rutherford says the question is where the funding comes from. Another meeting will be held next week. The plan is expected to be presented to the Knott County Fiscal Court Tuesday.
