AUBURN — The DeKalb County Airport cut the ribbon on its new hangars Friday evening.
Construction of the two new buildings has been completed for several months, but airport officials formally opened them Friday. The new hangars join three existing units on the northeast side of the airport. Most of the spaces in the hangars already have been rented, and some already are housing planes, Airport Authority President Brad Hartz said.
One of the buildings contains six hangars, and the other contains five. Some of the spaces can house multiple planes. The addition brings the total number of hangar spaces at the airport to 43.
