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.
