Rep. Moffitt releases defense of airport changes


There was no independent regional board, complicating decision-making and raising expenses. Neither Buncombe or Henderson County residents were given a fair voice in this supposedly regional board. Even though several years ago the authority amended its rules to allow a member from either Buncombe County or Henderson county to be appointed. Representative Tim Moffitt was concerned that Asheville could conceivably take full control of the airport authority when the existing agreement between the City and County expires in 2018, leaving both Buncombe and Henderson Counties with little or no voice in what was designed to be a regional body.
