Income, assets rising at Springfield airport


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- An annual audit shows assets and income have risen at the airport serving the state capital.


Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport finished the year with more than $62 million in net assets. That's compared with $57 million in 2011.


Net income rose to $4.8 million from $2.5 million the previous year. The annual audit was released Thursday.


The airport said most of the jump in net income came from a $2 million increase in state and federal grants.


The airport also reported that property tax revenue rose 2 percent a year over the last decade. Auditors said the rate was somewhat below that of most government agencies in Sangamon County.
