The Walnut Ridge Airport Commission voted at its Dec. 15 meeting to hire Lance Owens, an attorney out of Jonesboro to handle collections issues for the airport.
Airport Manager Stacy Hoggard said the airport sometimes needs legal assistance with delinquent payments. Owens will handle those issues for the airport on case-by-case basis.
Commissioners also approved the airport’s property insurance coverage for 2021 with no changes.
Christmas bonuses for the airport employees were also approved at the December meeting.
