Airport Closer To Having New Director

The Spokane International Airport is one vote away from having a new director.

Spokane City Council members last night voted 6-0 to name Larry Krauter the airport's new executive director. Krauter is currently serving as interim director of the Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown, Penn.

The Spokane airport's board of directors also voted to recommend Krauter for the position. Spokane County Commission will have the last say on the matter. They're expected to vote on it today.

If Krauter is approved, he will replace interim director Ryland Skip Davis, who has been in charge at the airport since Neal Sealock stepped down last summer.
