ATWATER — A new passenger terminal will be up and running at Castle Airport by June, officials said Tuesday. But whether Castle can attract a passenger airline to use the terminal remains up in the air. The Merced County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to spend $775,000 on the small, two-gate modular terminal building. A Baltimore-based company, Williams Scotsman Inc., will design the movable terminal, build it off-site and then install it. That process should take less than five months, said John Fowler, the county’s economic development director. A state grant the county won in 2006 will pay for the project. “This is an important step for Castle,” county spokeswoman Katie Albertson said.
