The local government watchdog group, Pocatello for Accountable Government Entities (P.A.G.E.) has posted an update on their social media page regarding the Skywest subsidy.  They say:

Skywest Subsidization Update:

The SkyWest Airport Transportation Services Agreement was approved on 03/17/22 to pay Skywest Airlines up-to-$800K in 2022 to keep the current, sole passenger flight to Salt Lake City in the hopes that passenger service counts/airline industry issues will improve by the time the $800K in funds are exhausted or 12/31/22 whichever comes earlier.

$800K allows for an average of $200K per quarter.

As the graphic illustrates, $333,148.86 remains for the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2022.
