"On Nov. 30, we got the final notification from the governor that it had been approved," Rick Wachtel, chairman of the Airport Authority, said in a recent telephone interview.
"In the business plan, we will bring in a consulting company with lots of experience to assess our strengths and our weaknesses, and show us how to exploit our strengths and correct our weaknesses," Wachtel said.
In February, Wachtel approached local state legislators about funding. They said they would support the request.
Wachtel also asked the City of Martinsburg and Berkeley County officials for financial assistance as well as the Berkeley County Development Authority. Neither the city, county nor the Development Authority were able to help.
In late March or early April, Wachtel said the legislators informed him that the authority's request had been approved, but no official word was received until last month. By then, the current application period for the ARC grant had run out. The Airport Authority has to re-apply for the grant, but the authority can show it has a guaranteed local match this time.
At its meeting last week, the Development Authority unanimously passed a resolution supporting the Airport Authority's ARC grant application. The City Council and County Council have been asked to pass resolutions supporting the application, but neither have acted on the requests yet.
"It will be a long and involved process," Wachtel said.

U.S. Rep Alex Mooney, R-W.Va., left, with Eastern Regional Airport Authority Chairman Rick Wachtel and Airport Manager Bill Walkup at the Eastern Regional Airport Monday.
Mooney met with Wachtel and Walkup to discuss some of the airport's needs and issues.
Mooney and several of his staff met Monday with Walkup, Rick Wachtel, chairman of the Eastern Regional Airport Authority, which manages the airport, and authority member Richard Talbott at the airport.
Wachtel told Mooney about how the Airport Authority has been trying to get funding to hire a consultant to put together a business/marketing plan for the airport and its industrial park.
"We have a great industrial park, but we need to do a development/marketing study," Wachtel said. "We're underperforming.

"About eight or nine minutes before we were to go on the air, the staff had fixed the equipment," Rick Wachtel, president and general manager of WRNR, said in a recent interview.
Pictured, from left, are Gregg Wachtel, Rick Wachtel and Mike Hornby.
Thirty-nine years later, Wachtel and his brother, Gregg, have sold the station and its parent company, Shenandoah Communications Inc., to Mike Hornby, chief executive officer and publisher of Hornby Publishing LLC and Valley Publishing LLC.
When WRNR first went on the air, it was a daytime-only Top 40 Rocker, Rick Wachtel said. WRNR stood for We Rock and Roll.
"We hung a big sign from the towers when we started that said, 'The New Sound of Martinsburg,'" Wachtel said.
