The closed Wayne Johnson Silver Bay Municipal Airport may have a potential sponsor: the town of Silver Creek.

A special public meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 26, at Silver Creek Town Hall, 1891 Town Road, regarding the potential sponsorship.

The airport runway was closed in May 2018 and its license was revoked after a Minnesota Department of Transportation Office of Aeronautics inspection found the runway conditions to be unsafe.

The runway fell into disrepair after the city of Silver Bay chose to discontinue receiving grants from MnDOT and the Federal Aviation Administration, which would have required the city to financially match part of the funds to maintain it.
