The 25 percent local share can 'be paid over a period ol years by airport revenues, he said, and the 75 percent federal grant would be made between five and nine years after the land is purchased1. "It's more of an interim fi- nancing that we need, rather than a continuing load ]on the he said.

"Only Route" "The only route I can see is g.o. said Finance Com- missioner Hal Schaefer. Biythe sairt bonding attorneys port revenue bonds to finance land acquisition.
