Airport acquires property, hopes to bring companies to area

    Texarkana Regional Airport Director Paul Mehrlich says he hopes to start talking to potential companies about leasing eight acres of land the airport recently acquired.

    The property is located between the airport and East 19th Street, and Mehrlich hopes to use it to draw aviation-based companies to the area.  Both sides of Texarkana approved the resolution allowing the purchase of the land, which cost about $82,000, which was partially paid through federal funding.
