RUTHERFORDTON- On Monday, April 6, 2015 the Rutherford County Airport Authority approved a resolution to support HB 492

Authority attorney Beth Miller presented the drafted resolution to the Authority. If the vote is approved by the legislature and enacted by the Commissioners then the management of the airport and all of the airports assets will be turned over to the county.

Authority member Bryan King made a motion to accept the resolution with a second by Alan Toney. HB 492 does not require the Commissoners to dissolve the Authority but it gives them the right to do so.

The current structure of the Airport Authority was put in place in 1971.
