The Grand Forks Air force Base still packs a pretty good economic punch.  G-F-A-F-B Colonel Rodney Lewis says the latest figures suggest the local base has an economic impact of 252-million dollars on the region.  That’s up from a 220-million dollar impact in fiscal 2015.  The local base has around 15- hundred military personnel.  Colonel Lewis announced the impact figure while attending Mayor Mike Brown’s State of the City address this week.
