WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Mid-Continent Airport in Wichita might someday be named for President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Wichita city council members agreed on Tuesday to create an advisory committee to study renaming the city's airport. The council received petitions last month suggesting that the airport be named after Eisenhower, who was born in Abilene.

KFDI reports (http://bit.ly/1cQNA2u ) the city's director of airports, Victor White, reported renaming the airport could cost up to $728,000 in required, deferred and optional branding.

The first immediate cost would be about $140,000 to change highway signs around the area. Other required sign changes could raise that cost to about $313,000.

Members of the committee will be appointed in the next few weeks. No timetable was set for the committee to make a recommendation to the council.
