Will a plan to make Alexandria's airport safer by keeping geese away from the runways work or will it be a wild goose chase?

The Alexandria City Council voted 4-0 Monday night to give it a try. It authorized the Alexandria Airport Commission to call for bids on a 10-year contract that would transform 120 acres of the 205 acres of cropland at the airport into grassland - 60 acres this year and 60 acres the next.
