RUTHERFORD COUNTY, N.C. — On Tuesday, HB 492: Rutherford County Airport Authority/County Commissioners passed in the Senate and has become law. This bill, with supporting resolutions from both the County Commissioners and Airport Authority, will authorize the Rutherford County Board of Commissioners to dissolve the Rutherford Airport Authority.

“The County Commissioners and Airport Authority approached me earlier this year to request the introduction of legislation to help consolidate and enhance operations of the airport,” said Representative Mike Hager. “Currently the Commissioners are acting as the Airport Authority. With the ability to choose when and if to dissolve the current authority, the Commissioners will have greater discretion to focus efforts to better serve our citizens in an efficient manner.”
