I haven't posted about the longstanding controversy surrounding the Chisholm-Hibbing Airport, its former director and its current interim director. Mostly I considered it to be too local and parochial an issue to try to sell to a Range-wide audience. But the plot thickens. Here is today's brief in the Hibbing Daily Tribune:
Airport Authority to hold two meetings MondayAll of this comes after a fascinating column by the Tribune's publisher Wanda Moeller this Sunday. In essence, after the former director retired amid allegations of unethical management, the interim director has apparently been running an airport management business on the side using his city office as a base, according to Moeller's column. Gotta' love them small town airport commissions. Just enough power and money to allow old timey shenanigans.
HIBBING – The Chisholm-Hibbing Airport Authority will meet at 3 and 5 p.m., today, in the airport’s conference room.
Duluth attorney Joesph Roby Jr. will address the board at 3 p.m. about his report related to allegations with the former executive director.
At 5 p.m. the board will discuss a proposed job description and 5-year employment agreement for the executive director position; appointment of an executive director; and discussion on director’s conflict of interest policy and annual disclosure statement.
Allegedly, of course.
