ELKO, Nev. (AP) - The Elko City Council is looking to increase land around the airport.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports (https://bit.ly/1NZX4c0 ) that the city is eyeing more than 60 acres of private land adjacent to the airport for development. City officials say the land would be leased and developed over time with long-term leases lasting about 50 years.

The airport will proceed with the acquisition using Federal Aviation Authority grant program criteria including finding competitive bids for property appraisal services.

The city is also looking at ways to shrink the difference between parade costs and fees. According to a report by the Elko Police Department, 2015 parades cost more than $22,000, while only $1,800 in fees were collected.

The police department is proposing the Council reorganize the parade schedule.
