TRENTON — So few pilots have been using the Trenton Municipal Airport in southwest Nebraska that it's been closed down.

The Village Board voted last month to take the airport out of service. The airport has been costing the village about $2,000 a year — a sizable chunk of the village's $60,000 property tax revenue.

Board chairman John Rundel said it's been several years since regular crop-dusters used the airport and more than 10 years since an airplane was based in a hangar there.

The Hitchcock County community has about 560 residents.
