CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - The perimeter fence around the Carlsbad airport is being repaired after a portion of the barrier was washed out by floods in September.

The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports (https://bit.ly/1obmooP) that Federal Aviation Administration will pick up more than 90 percent of the $200,000 in costs for the project.

The city and state will split the remaining $12,500.

The costs include replacing the fence and reinforcing the barrier with a retaining wall that should help the fence withstand another flood.

Steve McCutcheon, the city’s administrator, says the money would be used to replace what was damaged and wouldn’t be used to expand the perimeter fencing.
