KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Commissioners in Klamath County have voted to set aside $250,000 as a financial incentive for a prospective airline to restore commercial service from Klamath Falls to San Francisco.

The Herald and News reports (https://goo.gl/4x8awC ) commissioners voted unanimously on the measure which would come from an estimated $400,000 in unspent general fund revenue from the previous fiscal year.

Commissioners were the first to dedicate funds to the incentive package, with the Crater Lake Klamath Regional Airport hoping to raise as much as $700,000.

Airport Director John Barsalou says the airport is meeting with a potential provider in mid-September.

Klamath Falls has been without commercial air service since PenAir canceled flights Aug. 8.

The company began providing service in October and was the first commercial air provider after SkyWest pulled out in June of 2014.
