The council Tuesday night approved a document different from what the authority commission voted on in October, so the agency must OK the changes. The council wants 56 acres held in trust near the airport to be sold at the end of the 10-year agreement. The commission could meet as early as Monday for a special session if enough members are available to make a quorum.
