(Hebron, Ky.) – The board overseeing the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport will reportedly be the subject of a state audit following reports about its spending.


Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen will announce Wednesday a review of the Kenton County Airport Board and allegations of questionable spending. Edelen’s press conference will take place in Florence.


Questions of the airport board’s spending were raised by two recent Cincinnati Enquirer reports. One of the reports stated that the chairman and vice chairman of the airport board, Jim Huff and Larry Savage, attended an airport conference in Italy in October at a cost of $20,000 for three days.


Among other items, the report also cited records showing that the board spent $5,400 on two dinners during another conference in Calgary in September of 2012.


Airport board members say they welcome the audit and look forward to its results.
