AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Commissioners have voted to fire the executive director of Augusta Regional Airport.

The Augusta Aviation Commission terminated Roy Williams during a meeting Tuesday.

Commission Chairman Cedric Johnson says officials want to take the airport in a different direction, but he refused to elaborate on the firing.

The Augusta Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1LmcZU1 ) reports Williams will receive six months of salary and benefits under his $150,000-a-year contract. That’s because he was fired without cause.

Williams had been at the airport less than a year. Commissioners will negotiate a contract with a former airport director to return on an interim basis.
