Airport another step closer to a new director

Mon., Feb. 21, 2011, 9:26 p.m.

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

The Spokane City Council on Monday voted 6-0 to name Larry Krauter the airport’s new executive director. Krauter is the interim director of the Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown, Penn.

The Spokane airport’s board of directors voted last week to recommend Krauter for the job. The Spokane County Commission will have the last say on the matter and is scheduled to vote on Tuesday on Krauter’s selection.

If the commission agrees, Krauter will replace interim director Ryland “Skip” Davis, who has led the Spokane airport since Neal Sealock stepped down last summer.
