Airport Authority members sworn in

On Tuesday morning (Aug. 16), members of the new Washington-Warren Airport Authority were sworn in at the airport. Following, they adopted bylaws which helped the authority take shape.
Roy Whichard was nominated to be Chairman and Trent Tetterton was nominated to be Vice Chair. Wayne Woolard was nominated to be Treasurer and Bill Plaster was nominated to be Secretary. All were unanimously voted in.
The North Carolina General Assembly passed a bill in late June which evolved the (now former) airport advisory board into the authority on July 1. This means the City of Washington will remain as the airport’s sponsor in addition to maintaining ownership of all airport property and the airport will continue to have financial support from the city.
