TRENTON, Neb. (AP) - So few pilots have been using the Trenton Municipal Airport in southwest Nebraska that it’s been closed down.

The McCook Daily Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1KQGkFK ) that the Village Board voted last month to take the airport out of service. The airport has been costing the village about $2,000 a year - a sizable chunk of the village’s $60,000 property tax revenue.

Board chairman John Rundel says it’s been several years since regular crop-dusters used the airport and more than 10 years since an airplane was based in a hangar there.

The Hitchcock County community has about 560 residents.
