Charleston County airport panel considers bringing attorney on staff
MOUNT PLEASANT — The expanding needs of Charleston International Airport caused its oversight agency to consider bringing its attorney on staff Wednesday.
The Legal Committee of Charleston County Aviation Authority met for 90 minutes to talk about the necessity of bringing a full-time attorney in-house and what parameters the move would entail, including whether or not a contract is necessary.
In the end, they didn’t make a recommendation and decided they needed more information. They directed Airports Director Sue Stevens to come back at a future meeting with information about how comparably sized airports handle their legal counsel.
The airport terminal building will undergo a $150 million renovation later this year and the issues the agency faces might require more legal attention as it continues to expand, several committee members said.
