Facing strong public opposition and a split among board members, Monterey Peninsula Airport District directors delayed a decision Wednesday on whether to increase job security for the airport general manager and legal counsel. Current district law requires three of the five directors to vote to dismiss the general manager or legal counsel. Directors are considering a proposed ordinance to increase that to a “super-majority” of four votes.
