Luallen will present airport audit next week

State Auditor Crit Luallen will present the results of her audit of Blue Grass Airport's finances to the Urban County Council next week.

Luallen's presentation will be Feb. 25 in council chambers of the Urban County Government Center, 200 East Main Street. The exact time of the presentation hasn't been determined yet, but it will be early afternoon around 12:30 or 1 p.m.

Councilwoman Cheryl Feigel had planned to ask the council to request a report from the airport board about the ongoing investigation into airport expenditures but withdrew that idea Tuesday when she learned of Luallen's upcoming presentation.

Luallen began looking into the airport's finances and expenses at the request of the council after a Herald-Leader report raised questions about former Executive Director Michael Gobb's expenses. Gobb resigned in January.
