City Commission to interview applicants for airport board Jan. 16

City Commissioners are scheduled to interview the three applicants for the city’s spots on the Great Falls Regional Airport Authority Board during a special work session at 4 p.m. on Jan. 16.

The three applicants are: Anthony Aretz, Joe McKenney and Todd Timboe.

Their applications are available here.

Commissioners are scheduled to vote to make their appointments during the regular meeting, which begins at 7 p.m.

The airport board was created by joint resolution and has seven members, four are appointed by the city and three are appointed by the County Commission.

The city has two vacancies on the board.

Earlier this week, the county appointed Robert Smith for their vacancy on the board.

The board is the governing body and sets policy for the operation and management of the Great Falls International Airport. The board employs the airport director, who hires staff and oversees daily airport operations.
