The city and county have shared managing the airport for decades.
Now, Yakima county offered to give its half to the city.
Yakima's city manager says a single owner will increase tourism and improve the economy.
At least one city council member worries Yakima is moving too fast.
"I would like to see us slow down a little bit. Look at the information, decide what we need to do and then move forward. I'm not sure why we are in such a rush to step into this at this time, said council member Kathy Coffey.
City Council will officially vote Tuesday whether to move forward with airport negotiations.
There will also be a study session later this month.
