SAVOY -- MTD hopes to move forward on its route to Willard Airport, but it needs help from Parkland College to do it. The University of Illinois has been picking up the tab for the $87,000 route, but the UI no longer runs an aviation program at Willard.

UI has agreed to pay a third of the cost and MTD will pay a third. It's asked Parkland to pick up the remaining third. If an agreement isn't reached, the route would end August 31.
