Renaming airport could cost up to $150K

JACKSON — What is a name worth? Possibly $100,000 to $150,000.
That is how much it is expected to cost the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority to replace signage and other materials in changing the name of the Jackson-Evers International Airport to the Jackson Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.
The Jackson City Council this month approved the renaming, which backers say is needed to properly memorialize the slain civil rights leader.
But the airport authority must sign off on the change, too, before it is official. A vote is expected at the authority’s November meeting.
Once the approval is made, airport CEO Dirk Vanderleest tells The Clarion-Ledger, it will take several months to make all the needed changes, which they have already started cataloguing.
