After reading that story about the suggested change on runway 5-23 at the airport, this is a little hard to comprehend. Spending almost half as much money to accomplish what is actually needed compared to twice as much to do what the FAA recommends and NOT accomplish what is needed, seems a no-brainer to me. Did I read this correctly or did I miss something here?
