LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A decision concerning airport control towers will be made by the FAA Monday.

The FAA will decide which airport control towers will close, and one of them could be Bowman Field in Louisville.

The closings come with the loss of about $600 million due to sequestration cuts.

The agency released a list of nearly 200 towers facing potential closure in February.

The affected towers will be at airports with fewer than 150,000 flight operations a year.
