The city of Covington will enter into mediation with Dixie Jet Services, the fixed base operator of Covington Municipal Airport. The city council voted in September to terminate its contract with Dixie Jet. Ninety days notice is required for early termination, meaning the city is scheduled to take over operations at the airport in mid-December. City Attorney Ed Crudup said Dixie Jet is threatening litigation and Dixie Jet attorney John Strauss has requested the parties work out a solution through a professional mediator.
