The smart move is not to say anything this close to an election, but I kind of think governing must go on and City Hall has to make an informed decision on leasing a facility the Fairgrounds ball field. There are a couple of responsible parties who have expressed interest. The City is in the process of hiring new management for a newly reconstituted Parks and Rec Department. A policy on alcohol sales is being written as is a new contract for using facilities.
Meanwhile day to day business, including the booking of events, continues.
The particulars of collegiate baseball will get worked out, but I don't think City Council will want to vote on contracts without all their questions answered and so far neither of the interested parties has made any detailed request other than to talk to the press.
It will get resolved and I feel there will be this activity in 2012.
