MADISONVILLE-The contract of Larry
Hamilton, fixed-base operator for the Monroe Count 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.
