Airport board cuts manager's position
By Shelley Grieshop
A 50 percent budget cut has led to the termination of a full-time manager at Mercer County's only airport.
Scott Arnold's last day on the job is Feb. 15, Airport Authority Board President Steve Klosterman said this morning, following a meeting Monday night. The board also made across-the-board cuts wherever it could to combat the $15,000 it won't receive from the county this year. Arnold is the only employee at the airport. [More]
