Pilot Light: Two Appointed To Airport Panel
Don Delauter and John Taws have been appointed to the Moore County Airport Authority.
The county commissioners made the appointments during their Tuesday night meeting.
Taws is new to the board, but Delauter is a former member returning to the board for a new term. They succeed Michael Nash, who has resigned effective Aug. 30, and Pius Gabriel, who is ineligible for reappointment.
The board also appointed Matt Garner and reappointed Beckie Kimbrall and Carol Wright to the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council. Garner succeeds Donna Blue, who is no longer employed by the health department and thus is not eligible to represent the department on the council.
The commissioners picked one of their own, Tim Lea, as their representative on the Research Triangle Regional Partnership Board.
