Rapid City Regional Airport Director's departure plans raise questions

Posted:

Rapid City Regional Airport Director Cameron Humphres' plan to take a sabbatical overseas has raised some questions.   

Earlier this month Humphres announced he will be taking a year off to travel with his wife. But concerns have arisen about what will happen in his absence.

Tim Peiper, manager of Hertz Rental Cars at the airport says he has seen a decline in airport traffic and is worried.   "You know the last two months the airport has shown declines, we're just scared if the declines start increasing to you know the ten percent range what benefits do we get out of this as somebody that has to bid to be on the airport,"said Peiper.

But Airport Board Vice President Ray Carpenter says the airport will continue to move forward. "We want to retain him, and we don't want a pause while Cameron is gone, we expect him to continue to move the airport forward," said Carpenter. "And I have no doubt that is exactly what is going to happen.  

There will be a meeting on January 27th to further discuss Humphres contract.
