The Cobb Commission last week approved a contract with YLH Construction Co. Inc. to erect a customs inspection facility at McCollum.
lacks a customs inspection facility.
McCollum also is due to get a new $3 million, 80 foot tall control tower by then as well. When combined with the extension of its runway completed two years ago, McCollum will be more attractive than ever for companies that do international business from Cobb.

Construction of the $800,000 center should start next month and be finished by next April. And those aren't the only improvements planned there.
International flights can depart from Cobb County Airport McCollum Field in Kennesaw. So it only makes sense that they be allowed to land here as well.
"Up to this point, whenever the aircraft leave here they can go international from here, so they leave Cobb County airport flying overseas, but when they come back, they have to stop at another airport before they can come home to Cobb County," Karl Von Hagel, airport manager, tells the MDJ.

McCollum has an economic impact on Cobb that was estimated at $112 million in 2012 and is indirectly responsible for supporting 867 jobs, including the 250 daily employees at the airport itself. Only two county staffers work at the county owned aiport, Von Hegel and a maintenance worker.
Flying in and out of Cobb is all about convenience and time, according to Von Hegel.
Anyone who has ever driven to Hartsfield Jackson International Airport on Atlanta's south side knows it is not the most relaxing drive, and rarely a "speed limit" drive.

And if that translates as expected into more business for McCollum and increased tax revenues for the county, so much the better.
Plans are for the 29,000 square foot facility to include a large office, a pre check area, an inspection area, a post inspection area, an interview room and a holding cell.
