The county’s mayors Wednesday night postponed a decision on whether to remove John Foster, chairman of the Solano County Airport Land Use Commission. Four of the seven mayors on the Solano County City Selection Committee were concerned about making a decision without evidence of misconduct during a November meeting, as reported by Jane Day, Suisun City’s vice mayor. Thus, the mayors’ decision was postponed until February. During the committee’s meeting Wednesday night, a motion was made by Day to remove Foster.
