We believe that the future development and growth of the Covington airport is essential to economic recovery of both Covington and Newton County.
We have stated this fact many times on this page.
Covington City Manager Steve Horton plans to ask the city council in January to appoint Vincent Passariello, the current airport engineer and acting overseer, as official manager of the airport
Horton feels the airport needs a dedicated manager.
We agree with the city manager and recommend to the council that they take approve his recommendation.
