City Council Moves Forward With Airport Plans

The Yakima City Council is taking further steps towards taking complete ownership of the Yakima Air Terminal.

City council members voted in favor 6-1 at their business meeting last night.

The next step for the city is to draft an agreement, which will be revealed in two weeks.

Currently, ownership is split between the city and the county -- however, the county wants out.

City Manager Tony O'Rourke says having one group in charge of the airport will make it easier to manage and speed up decision making.
