BEND, Ore. (AP) - The director of a city-owned airport in central Oregon has resigned after leading the facility through a turbulent year.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1fpjA4l) the directorship has passed to four directors in as many years, with Jeff Tripp staying for 13 months before he resigned Monday.

Redmond City Manager Keith Witcosky says there’s solid team at the airport and that the city won’t immediately start looking for Tripp’s replacement.

Tripp was the director of a small municipal airport in central Arizona before being selected from among 21 applicants to lead the Redmond facility.

Witcosky says Tripp helped the airport rebuild relationships and prepare to be able to provide its own fuel if necessary.
