Monroe County (KMNV), Madisonville, Tennessee: Hamilton out as airport operator

MADISONVILLE-The contract of Larry Hamilton, fixed-base operator for the Monroe County Airport, will not be renewed when it expires April 1.

The County Commission approved County Mayor Tim Yates' request not to renew Hamilton's contract by a 5-3 vote during Tuesday's January Commission meeting.

Commissioners Marty Allen, Bill Bivins, Richard Kirkland, Wanda Alexander and Judy Lee voted for the mayor's request not to renew the contract while Harold Hawkins, Bill Shadden and Roger Thomas voted against Yates' request on Hamilton.

Hamilton was charged with aggravated assault in 2012 for allegedly shooting at his nephew and his case has been bound over to a grand jury. However, no mention of his case was made Tuesday and commissioners quickly moved on to other topics after the vote on his contract.
