MAXWELTON — Under the shadow of a potential federal government shutdown, the Federal Aviation Administration assured a Greenbrier Valley Airport official Monday the Maxwelton facility’s air-traffic control tower will remain open.

“The FAA came out with a contingency plan,” airport manager Jerry O’Sullivan said. “The plan calls for the FAA to fund the contract towers, like ours.”
