Yakima City Council votes to take control of airport

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima city council voted in favor to take full control of the Yakima airport.

For decades, the county and city have shared management of the airport. The county recently offered to relinquish its half to the city. Both sides agreed the airport would improve with a single owner.

City manager Tony O'Rourke will reveal his master plan for airport improvements in March.
