Bluegrass Airport Board Prepares For New Hires

The Bluegrass Airport Board in Lexington plans to hire new administrators next week. Several airport leaders resigned this year amid revelations of exorbitant spending practices.

Airport Board member Ed Lane says the council will consider filling two positions at its May 14th meeting.

“There will be a vote to approve a new auditor and a new finance director so those issues will be addressed and a lot of policies and procedures have been put in they’ve eliminated credit cards and a whole lot of other things at the airport board which encourages me to feel that they are on a very good path and doing very well,” he says.

Lane told council members a national search for a new airport director is underway. He says the interim director Eric Frankle is invited to apply for the permanent position.
