ONAWA, Iowa (AP) - Onawa officials plan to turn their little used municipal airport into a drag strip.

City administrator Bradley Hansen told the Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1Imjozk ) that officials are hoping to have at least one racing date this year.

The Onawa City Council voted in April to close the airport, which is used primarily by private pilots, aerial sprayers and traveling doctors. Hansen says four of its five hangars are occupied. Its closure is scheduled for July 1.

Officials have not determined whether the drag strip would be funded privately or with local taxes.
