COLUMBIA — Andrew Schneider, who was hired as the Columbia Regional Airport manager in November 2010, has been replaced.

Columbia Public Works Director John Glascock said Schneider was "released" from his duties. He wouldn't say whether that was the same as being fired or terminated.

Glascock said he would not explain the change in leadership.

"It is the policy of the city of Columbia not to discuss personnel issues," Glascock said.

Schneider will be replaced by Don Elliott, who accepted an interim appointment to serve as airport manager Thursday. Elliott has worked for the city and the regional airport for 29 years. 

Glascock said he had not yet made plans to find a permanent replacement for airport manager.
