Video: Dodge Co. Airport Authority Meeting Highlights

The Heart of Georgia Regional Airport Authority held a special called meeting. The meeting was planned and announced last week at the regularly scheduled meeting. Last week's meeting came on the heels of the Development Authority removing Eddie Driggers and Jack Burnham as their delegates to the Airport Authority. Driggers served as the Chairman of the Airport Authority prior to the action.

The meeting was called to order by Vice-Chairman John Clements. Member Terry Niblett led the board in prayer.

The first order of business was to elect a new Chairman to replace Eddie Driggers. Bobby Slye questioned the legality of the removal of Driggers and Burnham. Steve Greer spoke about the necessity to move forward regardless,  since waiting on a ruling of some sort would only put the Authority further behind on handling current business.

Steve Greer was unanimously elected Chairman of the Authority. Phil Bearden was nominated to replace Greer as Secretary but declined to serve. Terry Niblett was then nominated and unanimously elected Secretary.

Greer next gave a speech, thanking past and former Authority Members for their service and acknowledging that some of them had not been fairly treated at times.
