MIDLAND - One hot topic on the Midland City Council was leasing land for hotels.

On Tuesday morning, the City Council unanimously approved the leasing of several pieces of land near the airport to bring in those additional hotels.

With hotels currently sitting at nearly 95 percent capacity, the area is in desperate need of extra rooms.

Thanks to the City Council's action, the number could come back down allowing for tourism dollars to flow back into the area.
