Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan met with Airport Authority board member Dr. Ron Whitford today to settle financial questions related to the new airport terminal project. Claims and counter claims have been made in recent weeks concerning the project, with some board members accusing the City of Clarksville of “malfeasance.”
Issues arose when the city did not make payments allocated for the new terminal, that were tied to federal grants provided for the project. Accusations were running rampant that there was “over charges” tied to change orders that were not a part of the project, something that board members vehemently denied. “Our books are open for anyone to see.” said Jerry Clark, the project manager. “Any change orders related to this project were well within the acceptable limits of any project of this nature, and the implication that there has been mismanagement is absurd.” Clark said.
