An “Air­port Ground Op­er­a­tions Su­per­vi­sor” po­si­tions is listed with a salary range of $42,827 to $57,387, depend­ing on ex­pe­ri­ence and skill level. The su­per­vi­sor will over­see op­er­a­tions at the air­port, co­or­di­nate sched­ules of em­ploy­ees and man­age two tech­ni­cians. Ap­pli­cants must have a high school diploma or equiv­a­lency, at least six years of ex­pe­ri­ence in ground and fa­cil­i­ties main­te­nance and op­er­a­tions and be able to ob­tain and main­tain proper li­censes.

The em­ploy­ees must be able to re­spond to emer­gen­cies, and work over­time, nights and week­ends when needed. Ap­pli­cants must have a high school diploma or equiv­a­lency, three years of ex­pe­ri­ence in ground and fa­cil­i­ties main­te­nance and op­er­a­tions and be able to ob­tain and main­tain proper li­censes.

Air­port En­gi­neer Vin­cent Passariello, who was hired in Au­gust, will con­tinue to su­per­vise the air­port in a man­age­rial role, Per­son­nel Di­rec­tor Ron­nie Cowan said pre- vi­ously.

In re­lated air­port news, the Cov­ing­ton City Coun­cil went into ex­ec­u­tive ses­sion at its Mon­day meet­ing to dis­cuss its me­di­a­tion at­tempt with Dixie Jet Ser­vices, the cur­rent man­ager of the air­port. City At­tor­ney Ed Crudup said Mon­day that the two sides had not yet reached an agree­ment.

Dixie Jet con­tends it is owed more than the $367,389 that its con­tract with the city calls for un­der the early ter­mi­na­tion clause. In lieu of fil­ing a law­suit, Dixie Jet asked the city to go through me­di­a­tion.
